My Valentine

My husband has been my valentine for 34 years (31 years of marriage, and 3 years of dating). He is one of the biggest BLESSINGS of my entire life. Not all of these years have been heavenly bliss but each hurdle has helped our love to grow and has taught us valuable life lessons. The biggest accomplishment of our love story has been raising two children and the satisfaction of seeing them as responsible, independent, adults. Our love continues to strengthen and grow as we enjoy our empty nest years together with anticipation of many more happy loving years to come. Our valentine evening will be spent together enjoying a church valentine banquet and then participating in a "Newlywed Game". I have no idea what that will be like but it should be interesting! My husband, still my valentine after 34 years- now that is a BLESSING indeed!

That is so wonderful and so encouraging. I love it when I read about couples who have been married for so long and are still in love!

Have a great evening!

We'll celebrate our 35th this year and it would be such fun to see what our answers would be like in such a game. Nice tribute to your valentine!

I could have written this myself, Nancy. You've expressed what we have after this many years of marriage, just beautifully. I actually save my allowance to surprise Rob with dinner out tonight and he said, "No way. I'll bring home KFC - we can't miss American Idol." Now THAT'S true love.

And I love it that you are happy in your nest, too. Our nests aren't really "empty" so much as they're just no longer constantly "occupied." :-)

Happy Valentine's Day to both of you.

You're so right in saying that a long
term marriage is a blessing!
Have fun playing "newlywed game"

Your post helped me think of our math in a different way. We've been married nearly 27 years, but this is our 30th Valentines Day.
Thanks for reminding me to include the wonderful "dating" years.
