We are still on our trip. The big wedding was today. So, the hubs and I didn't really get to celebrate Valentine's Day. It's always been a low-key holiday for us though. Just exchanging cards and small tokens... candy, flowers, the usual.
Today more than ever, I am very thankful for my sweetheart. We have had some ups and downs, as any married couple has. We are not much for flowery words or big public displays of affection. It's just not who we are. Young love is fun and exciting, but there is a real sense of comfort in many years of loving and leaning on eachother. Our love is slow and steady and has stood the test of time. To me, that is what marriage is all about.
I thank God daily for the gift of love and my caring, loyal husband.
