Tonight I go about my evening, but with a flutter of impatience and excitement inside... My dear friend and darling husband is due to arrive home tomorrow after having been weeks away with work.
I am not inclined to give any notice to Valentines Day, and the folly of red roses and Hallmark cards, as I believe everyday is this special day with a special friend.
A warm smile, to me is more thoughtful than a red rose; and a respectful regard and honest friendship, more telling than a card with a pre-printed message.
The is no harm of course in these things between lovers I suppose, but the point I wish to make, is that there be true love in between any, or all of the above exchanges.
Goodnight dear friends. I wish you love.
