HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
They say it's the little things that we'll remember in the end, not the big fancy gifts, but the tender moments and gestures of kindness.
When we were first dating, Steve-who was a news photographer-had to shoot a night time football game during a driving snow storm. On his way home, at almost 10 pm, my doorbell rang. When I opened the door he quickly kissed me and said "I just wanted to do that before I went home. Bye!" and he left.
I always loved to watch the surgeons at work in the ER, where I was a social worker. I was pretty good at sewing and just knew I'd be a natural at doing stitches. That Christmas I opened a box from Steve. He had gotten me a set of surgical tools at a medical supply house! Of course it made me laugh, but it also showed me how much he really listened to me and to what lengths he would go to tickle my funny bone-a very good trait in a man.
Have you ever spent time day dreaming at work? Steve and I have gotten into the habit of calling each other and saying, "I'm having a tender moment."
Happy Valentines Day Steve, thanks for making my heart soar for nearly 20 years...
