Happy Valentine's Day

Today is a day for romance and romantical thoughts and wishes, well for most people any way. For me today is the day twenty-two years ago that Dave officially asked me to marry him. He asked me origanially on January 26, 1987, but didn't put a diamond on my hand until Valentine's Day. He wanted me to meet his parents so that weekend he and I drove from Holloman AFB, New Mexico, to Mesa, Arizona. It was a nice drive and his parents were great! We talked about where we were going to be married and when. We decided to go with my long time dream of being married in the Mesa Temple and the day we chose was the 16th of April of '87, the day that my maternal grandparents were sealed and my mom was sealed to her parents in 1965. Dave doesn't have a romantic bone in his body but he shows me that he loves me all the time and says it often. I try to do wonderful things for him to show him that I love him. I wouldn't trade him for anyone else in the world. We have stuck together through many ups and downs and our marriage is stronger for it. I love Dave with all of my heart and soul, he helps me to be the best that I can be. He helps me to see the good in myself and helps me to understand the Gospel and helps my testimony grow stronger.

It is truly amazing how this Valentine's Day has been one for the books. I say that because you are not the only one who has thanked her husband for being so wonderful in a blog! Thank you for sharing your sentiments and know that we are pretty lucky for such wonderful, amazing men, aren't we?

Well, if he didn't have a romantic bone in his body I don't think he would tell you he loves you. That is romantic, take what you can get.
