Happy Valentines Day friends!
I made this 'eye chart' on the above website! You can make it say anything you want. Give it a try!
An entire day completely devoted to love? What could be better? Though I love LOVE, sometimes the fakeness of this "holiday" annoys me. The store aisles are lined with cheap candy & red roses are everywhere to be found. The more I see, the less I want. I'd prefer to have a bouquet of wild flowers or even a special heartfelt love note or silly love poem (Andrew's specialty). Per Andrew, Valentines Day "is a dumb made-up holiday for people to make a bunch of money off of." For this reason, I expect little from my Valentine (this is probably his goal- that little smarty pants). However, I have to give my sweet husband credit, he has not only done some very sweet things in the past but continues to love on me in special ways on a daily basis no matter the holiday.
Besides that, we'll see if I will even get to see Andrew today- If my flight gets in on time, maybe I'll arrive just in time while it's still technically Valentines Day.
I'll never forget our first Valentines Day (I think it was our first). As a sophomore in high school, Andrew and my Dad exchanged the most awkward hand shake on the planet a few days prior to Valentines day. A.w.k.w.a.r.d. Since when did my boyfriend and father shake hands on a regular basis? Later that week (Vday), I arrived to my super cool car (the Astro Van) after school to find it filled with sweet little gifts. It then clicked that my dad had slipped Andrew the spare key during that handshake. Ah ha! Besides being surprised by Andrew, one of my favorite parts was arriving to work (I worked for my dad) after school to find Dad so excited to find out how it all worked. I'm so glad Andrew and my Dad could work together to spread some love. I love both of these men and am so thankful for the way that they share their love.
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
