Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Of course, we shouldn't need a commercial day to remind us of our loved ones, but I 'spose some folks need it. Dick used to bring me chocolate covered cherries each year. Hmmm, I finally pointed out that I don't eat them, but it was fine by me if he wanted to buy them for himself. Give me Hershey's Kisses any day! He finally realized that was my chocolate passion. Of course he has given me baubles every now and then, but what is even more important is the love we've shared now for almost 40 years.
Now go back to those pesky New Year's resolutions. Keep up with me. I usually don't make them cuz they are annoying and so hard to keep. This year I thought of something neat that I can keep...and actually enjoy. I decided it would be my goal to make sure I give a good hug to my guy EVERY day. Not one of those quickie, A-frame 'almost' hugs, and not (necessarily) a passionate hug, but just a simple, you-mean-the-world-to-me hug. Funny thing, we BOTH benefit from this cuz it makes for a better, happier day. Try it yourself with someone special, and if you don't have someone special, give a scratch to your (or your neighbor's) dog, cat or hamster:-) It is a win-win for everyone!
