My husband, Jeff, is a writer and copy editor for a rural small-town newspaper. He saw this gem, headed for publish in his newspaper, and sent it to my office, via email.
I have to tell ya, it made my day, my week, my February…..
From Dear Abby for tomorrow’s paper
“A life without love is no life at all.”
“You will know you have found love when you meet someone who makes you feel strong instead of dependent, who appreciates you for the person you are and isn’t threatened by your successes, who supports you when you’re down, takes pride in your accomplishments, and will hug you even after a difficult day.”
You fill the bill in all categories, Sweetheart. I love you!!!
….My response to Jeff’s email….
BEST Valentine EVER…. well, except for my ENGAGEMENT RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE YOU….
You do the very same for me, my dear Jeffry.
You even like me when I am grumpy and out of sorts for no apparent reason.
You lift me up in times of difficulty and trouble.
You support me when my road is rough.
You comfort me and hold me, telling me all will be okay when I am sad and in despair.
You laugh with me as we share in our own silliness.
You rejoice with me in triumph.
You celebrate our life together.
You constantly remind me, my family and friends and all who know one or both of us…
