Every Day is Valentine's Day for Me February 14 2017
It's Valentine's Day! Not a day that is any different for old married folks like me and my honey.
We married young. Me barely 19 and he was all grown up at 21. Not sure either of us knew what we were about to get into. But you learn. You adjust. You work on it. As in every single day. And it's fair to say he's had to adjust more than me. Yep, I'm high maintenance.
I was NOT impressed when I first met my future husband. He was obnoxious. Flirty and did I mention he had been drinking?? Our love story and how it developed is hilarious, but that's another blog post. This photo is him dreaming of me when he was at Texas A&M in his dorm room instead of studying. Or maybe he was thinking, what in the world am I going to do about this girl? Too late now... you've got me!
It will be 45 years in December. That's a lifetime I know but I can't imagine life without him. He kept me when it was not easy. He loved me UNCONDITIONALLY when it was hard. He fought for me when it seemed impossible. He takes care of me and spoils me every single day. Still.
So I don't need chocolates or flowers. I just need him to continue to do what he does best and that's LOVE me!
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! I wish you much love. Terri
