Personally, Valentine’s Day is not major for me, but I do appreciate the day. Last year on Valentine’s Day morning, Cullen reminded me via text or phone call (can’t remember) that it was Valentine’s Day and while it is a day for “lovers” and we weren’t quite there yet, he was excited about the possibilities of the future.
Well, a full year later, my “lover” and I woke up next to each other. During our morning conversation Cullen said, “Wow, a lot of men will be under serious pressure today.” And I said, “Well, thank God you don’t have to worry about that. We know our love and as long as we’re together, I couldn’t care less.” I mean that. I don’t need a bunch of roses and candy on February 14th to show me you care if you don’t show me all the other days of the year. I prefer consistency in my relationship. Appreciate me every day! And if you want to go a little harder on V-day with a card or a little (or big! Ha!) token, I’ll take it and appreciate that too.
I’ve never been big on one-time wonders. PAUSE ~ I had a boyfriend who sent me flowers ONCE at the start of our relationship. You know during that time when he was trying to make a good impression and lock me down. The flowers were beautiful and unexpected, and the card attached was so sweet. I never received another flower or card for the rest of the relationship, and the biggest unexpected act to follow took place on the day he broke up with me — leaving me wounded, but not damaged. PLAY ~
I am no more thankful today than I am any other day for my loved ones, including my Cullen! And I do my best to be candid on a regular basis and let them know just how much they mean to me. Consistent… But today, I’ll take a little time and remind them. Not because I feel I have to, but because I want to.
And so to you, my faithful readers… I know I’ve told you before how much I appreciate your support, encouragement, notes, opinions, etc. Today, I want to remind you: I do love you! Honestly… without you my words, my voice would just be trapped in my heart.
Thank you for giving a place to let my emotions run free.
Happy Valentine’s Day (if you’re into it) — if not… Happy “I Appreciate You” Day!
