I've never been a huge Valentine's Day person. I think it's because I always had to count on little gifts and cards from my mom and family instead of expecting any from a guy. But now I've got that guy that girls dream of. He's thoughtful. He's understanding. He's my prince charming. I've come to realize over the years that even though one couple may not be perfect for each other, separately they are perfect for someone out there. This is my perfect. To others he might not have been the prince on the white horse, but he's mine. We click. We mesh. We are the perfect mixture of concord grape spread and organic peanut butter. Well that's my perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Ok, we're like peas and carrots.

- I made some phone calls.
- I put away the laundry and tried to get the closets into some kind of order.
- I shoveled my car out and shoveled around the hubby's spot and I cleaned off the front porch.
- I cleaned the bathrooms (although the upstairs one is waiting for the renovation to be done until I do a complete cleaning).
- Updated our scrapbook of love (great name right? haha)
So today is one of those days that we all dream of: a day where we don't need to make up an excuse to stay home because mother nature already provided it. I was off from work today anyway because I'm sick. Well not exactly sickkkk, but contagious. That's right folks, I've got pink eye. Hilarious right? I feel like I'm in first grade again. The young girl at work had it this weekend, but didn't think there would be an issue. Well, if there is sickness around, count on me to contract it.

This is what I came home to when I looked at my hubby's facebook today. It's not even that big of a deal, but to me it is. He's not a big P.D.A. guy, so this just brought tears to my eyes. I am a little dorky, so of course I would cry. Did you expect any less? I just can't help but think how blessed I am to have found a hubby who is this unbelievably loving. I honestly never thought I would find a love like this. One that reminds me of the grace of God...
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
Everyone knows this passage from Corinthians 13. But sometimes I think people forget the entire meaning and all of the beauty in the entirety of the passage.
Sometimes I think that my hubby doesn't realize how amazing he is. Sometimes I feel like I'm the first person to ever tell him that, even though he's deserved it all along. I tell him everyday how lucky I am. One day he'll realize it. It's always been the little things that I can count on him doing. The way he looks at me or the way he let's me be me. We're each others best friends. I'm so thankful to have him in my life. More than anything.
