Here is a post from 2021 to share again. I updated it a little but it says it all for all those who celebrate Valentine’s Day! Have a good one! Love to all!
I couldn’t find a photo of 2020!? Sorry!
I put three years’ flowers up for you to enjoy! It’s too soon for me to receive this year’s (2022) flowers. (Just received my 2022 roses above! Happy Day!) That’s if he remembers. I hope he does. I do love roses! As he gets older he may not remember. But, I guess I will have to remind him. Haha! Enjoy my flowers. They are beautiful, aren’t they? They lift my spirits when I am down and remind me that I am loved. Thank God for my husband!

Here are some quotes by famous people about Valentine’s Day. These are beautiful words to share.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.–Helen Keller
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.– Aristotle
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.– Lao Tzu
My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.– William Shakespeare
If I had a flower for every time I thought of you … I could walk through my garden forever.– Alfred Tennyson
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.– Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.– Henry Ward Beecher
There is no remedy for love but to love more. — Henry David Thoreau
I hope you enjoyed these lovely words. Don’t we all wish we could have thought of them first?
I feel blessed to have a husband who is a romantic. He buys me roses, takes me out to dinner and a movie just to display his love. I love every minute of his attention to me. He never expects any gifts in return but I do write him a poem each year to express my love for him and appreciation of all he does for me. We enjoy going out to dinner and the movie together as a gift to each other.
What do I think of love? These are my truisms or lovisms. (I know, I made up that word.)
Love is sharing the deepest part of your heart with another.
Love is sharing all of yourself and being the best you can be.
Love is doing all you can do to make your significant other happy.
Love is thinking of another person more than yourself.
Love is caring for another until death do you part.
Love is loving another even if they have faults.
Love is forgiving another when you disagree and argue with them.
Love is precious and should be cultivated like a garden so it can flower and prosper. Sprinkle liberally with love so it will grow.
Love is being there when you are needed.
Love is loving that person through good times and bad.
Love is loving that person even when they grow old.
Love is loving that person even if their beauty is fading with time.
Love is having a piece or two of dark chocolate and sharing it with the one you love.
Love is keeping that person close to your heart and cherishing your relationship always.
Love is so many things to me that I could go on forever. What does love mean to you?
I appreciate my husband and all that he does to make me feel loved and fulfilled in life. I try to do the same for him. I feel blessed to have him every day.
