february & the month of love

oh yes,
it is already february-
FEBRUARY
 the
month of love
of course if you are
single, divorced or widowed
this can be a pretty sad
month;
with all the lovers
everywhere you go,
the candy and the cards
and all of that
too
i am sure makes it
 a bit lonely 
for some people.
i am trying to think of this
when i post on facebook
and my other social media
because
 i have a lot
of
 single/divorced/widowed
friends
and sometimes i feel like
it is a bit unkind...
it must be
hard
for them.
i also have a few friends
who try a 
little 
TOO hard... 
(insert: over compensate)
 to prove
to everyone they come in 
contact with
on ALL their social media...
just how
 'very happy and in love they are'...
sometimes i feel a bit like,
"oh, let's get real!"
i mean, yes i am happily married
and yes, i am happy that you are happy too
but,
we also know
it is not always 
sunshine and lollypops
every stinkin' day,
so why are you trying so hard to prove
to me and to everyone you come
 in contact with...
how happy and in love
you are?
i mean, really?
~~~~~
now with that being said,
i will say this...
i love my guy.
my husband and i plan to go to
dinner and a movie on v-day
with our small group.
it will be a small intimate group
of couples/ friends.
we are going to a very romantic place for dinner
and i am so looking forward to it.
the following week
after v-day,
we will celebrate
THIRTY FOUR years
of marriage!
so yes,
i am happy.
we are happy.
he is my best friend
and always will be.
i love him!
~~~~
but, this year
i am going to try
very hard 
to be 
sensitive,
kind,
& more aware
 of
all of my friends/family members
who get
sad and melancholy
during
the
month
of february~
i do wish you
a
happy love month...
and for the record,
i am hoping for some
 yummy chocolate
for v-day...
i cannot tell a lie. HA
hugs...

Emma,
Thank you! Thank you.
My advice? Just love. No matter what. When things are rough and when things are smooth. Just love. It is a commitment and there is going to be rough spots but, just love each other through it all. :) We both believe in our marriage and that has helped through the tough patches...we believe in marriage and love. :)

Happy Anniversary! I hope I can one day say "34 years."

My husband and I have been together 8 years and married 5 years. :)
