Have you ever received flowers from a secret admirer? These pretty tulips were delivered yesterday to my daughter at her work place. She doesn't know who they were from. There wasn't a card with them. No, I didn't send them!
Both my children have someone special to exchange valentines with this year. Our daughter has recently gotten back with a former boyfriend and our son has a new lady that we will be getting to meet soon. I'm happy when my children are happy!
BG and I met in a grocery store parking lot one night over 40 years ago and we've been together ever since. One night we went to the movies. I don't remember if we were married yet, but Love Story was playing and I wanted to see it since I loved a good romance. The movie was good but the ending wasn't what I had hoped for and I left the movie with tears flowing. I did remember one line from the movie that I thought was a good one at the time. The line was "love means never having to say you're sorry." I remember thinking "oh, goody!" I learned differently over the years. I firmly believe that saying you're sorry when you've hurt someone, especially a loved one, even inadvertently, is so very important in maintaining a good relationship. And being able to forgive is equally important, too.
There was cookie baking going on in my kitchen last night. Cookies were made for the kids at my daughter's school and a few for us, too. We had to put the kitties downstairs and shut the door because they would have been in the middle of everything. You can't turn your back on them a minute when you have food around.
My all time favorite love song is Unchained Melody. It's a little harder to choose a favorite romantic movie because there are too many I like. The Notebook is one. Do you have favorites? Do tell!
Linking to Willie Nilly Friday 5
Hugs and love to each of you as we celebrate Valentine's Day this weekend!
Happy Friday to you!
