We were together. I forget the rest. (Walt Whitman)
I saw a photo on Facebook of a young couple dressed up for Valentine's Day. It was the full deal -- flowers, dress, hot high heels, a suit. And I smiled, closed the browser, turned away from my computer, and looked at my own environment. My comfortable, been married for 14 years, have 3 kids and a house, life.
We won't be going out for a fancy Valentine's dinner this evening. I think we're having tacos, in fact, because for tacos seem to be a primary love language for my children.
And, in my heart, I feel simply wonderful about this. We'll be together, and that's what counts.
