In a couple of days it will be Valentines Day. We will be spending our Valentines Evening at a meeting with our Kids at Demolay. How romantic is that?
Luckily for me, every day is Valentines Day. We dont need an assigned day to celebrate what we have together.
And what we have together is something very special. Our relationship hasn't been with out its rough patches. But surviving whatever challenges or obstacles land in our paths has helped forge a stronger appreciation for our love.
Between work, and dishes, teen dances, bottle drives and car washes. Between science projects and Parent-teacher interviews....we somehow manage to snatch little moments of "us" time.
In a house that seven people share, we relish the rare moments of having the house to ourselves. As often as possible , we go on 'dates'. Even if it is just a quick bite to eat, or a walk around the block. if its just us two, then its a date!
The older we get, the more important it gets to ensure we have quality time together. As I reach middle age, I realize just how frighteningly swiftly our lives are going by. Sometimes I get a bit panicky at the thought of running out of time in this lifetime to spend with the one I love.
some would say that passion and romance only fade with time. I dissagree, at least for us, It has grown stronger over time. I have been blessed to have discovered what a soul mate is.
