My Valentine's Day Love Story

.
OK So this really isn't Joey and I but I've been told this does look like me and the groom looks so British in that cutaway coat, and the bride with the wreath of flowers in her hair, I'm thinking 1960s? I love it! And, love my husband, always have, always will. 

I wish I had a wildly romantic story about the two of us but the truth of it was when we met we had both sworn off EVER being married again! We were both going through a divorce  and thought we would live our  lives alone, and love every minute of it. I had this vision of buying an old house and filling it full of antiques, cats and a small english flower garden. Anything that did not involve a man. And then we met. 

It's funny how the scope of your life can change in an instant. We dated for two years filled with oodles of huge flower arrangements, presents, and being wooed like I had never been wooed before. It worked. We've been married now for almost 19 years. I always hated it when people make sappy statements like when something bad happens it "brought them closer than ever." Well I am now living those words. 

After becoming "health-challenged", things just changed. Slowly at first, but in time we found our place in a life filled with more patience, kindness, and love. Happy Valentines Day to you and your love. May it be all you wish.

Happy Valentine's Day, Cindy. It truly is an amazing feeling when you find your life partner. To have your best friend by your side through the good and the bad takes the sting out of the negative that comes your way ... making those moments more tolerable. All stories of two hearts meeting are worth telling :)))

Hey Cindy, Happy Valentine's Day again, if you ever need some 1960's pic's to do a wedding post story with I can email you mine, 1961 to be exact, you could probably do a great one with it and this gal has a sense of humor! Hugs, sorry the Memories got to ya, if you play the "Will you know me in Heaven" Song you will need a box of kleenex, aww a good cry is good for the soul sometimes. Luv ya, Hugs and have a Happy Day, make it count! Marilou
