Happy Valentine's Day

Al is my sweetheart.

He puts up with alot from me. Being a Virgo, I am borderline Obssesive/Compulsive. I like things to be done a certain way, and if they aren't done that way....well...I get a little grumpy.

But here is a man who has sent a couple of quotes to my cell phone over the last two days. The first: 'The wrinkles only go where the smiles have been" (Jimmy Buffet). There may be a couple of reasons he chose THIS quote for me.

I have been expressing a concern over what will happen to my appearance when we are cruising. I LOVE my skin care products! I use Arbonne and even one day without the eye cream and I can tell the difference. (HE says he wouldn't notice, but I do.) But he has agreed that my using this rather expensive regime is worthwhile to us both. It is to be considered necessary maintenance.

So the 'wrinkle' issue had been resolved, I thought. What else could be the meaning behind this quote for me? Perhaps Al is telling me to smile more. I need to quit sweating the small stuff and enjoy life more. Sounds like a good plan; I will endeavor to follow it.

Al is my sweetheart.

This morning another quote showed up in my Inbox. 'To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.' (Heather Cortez) How appropriate for Valentine's Day. We are on the verge of setting off on the voyage of the rest of our lives, where we will be each other's sole companion for much of the time. Our daily lives will be not be taken up with the world of kids, grandkids, work, traffic, mortgages, TV, schedules, etc, but we will be each other's world.

Al is my sweetheart. Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Wow, I was just about to write up another post, and look what I found.

    No way I can post something now, hard to see the screen clearly. :-)

    Happy Valentine's Day Kristi.


  2. Awwww. That's just what I wanted to happen. Love you!
