Love Always and Forever!

This year I decided to create my own Valentines’ Day card for My Beloved. Here’s what it said:

To My Beloved on Valentine’s Day
We started as kids playing in the street
In basketball you were hard to beat
I loved when we played Hide and Seek at night
Using the glow of a big street light
Then we met years later at the house of a friend
When we started to talk I knew it right then
That we’d be together for the rest of our lives
And someday you’d become my wife
Six months later I was down on one knee
On a little bridge on a beautiful creek
Half a year later we walked down the aisle
Thirteen months later we had our first child
And though we had a lot of growing up to do
It wasn’t long before we had child number two
And our blessings were soon doubled
As we had more good times than troubles
Since we had two boys in our family
We made sure a girl was child number three
We had great times and some tough ones too
But always together we made it through
We never gave in and never gave up
We worked together and made our own luck
We’ve made a great love as we built our life
And I still bless the day you became my wife

Happy Valentines’ Day!

Love Always and Forever!
