Valentine's Day

Was your sweetie good to you this year? Mine was...and has been for the past 4 wonderful years.

My husband Jem is a real "gem" when it comes to romance. Even before the big day, he bought me a dozen long-stemmed roses. Then, on the morning of the holiday, he brought me breakfast me in bed, along with the Sunday morning newspaper and some wonderful sugar-free chocolates with a very romantic card. We spent a lovely morning and afternoon together, then went for a drive along the river, followed by a great dinner. What a wonderful, bliss-full romantic day. I felt so loved and pampered - like a princess - which is what he calls me.

Before you start to hate me, consider that it hasn't always been this way. Before I married Jem, I compared marriage to having your teeth drilled without Novocaine! I didn't know it could be good, but God smiled on me when he sent me Jem, my "gem". I'd never known devoted, constant, up-lifting, kind and respectful love. His kind of love just melts my heart and inspires me to show it to others. Jem's love is like God's love. It is always there, never changing, constant, strong, unselfish, and true.

So, tell me about your Valentine's Day. Was it good, or not so much? Do you wish your husband was more romantic? Did he forget? Believe me, I've had some bad ones, too!

Or maybe you could share some tips on leading your husband to be more romantic...like the lady who hung red hearts in every room the week prior to Valentine's Day to give her husband the hint. Sometimes you have to get creative, right?

Here's your chance to brag or vent...
