Ocean's Heart

On this day of hearts and flowers and Hallmark sentiments. I wish You all a Happy Valentines Day.

Love Is:

Finishing each others sentences.
The sound of your voice on the telephone when I when we have been apart.
Taking out the garbage without being asked.
Watching Project Runway when you really don't like it but I do.
Knowing that when I am sick Sprite and Chicken Noodle soup is what I crave.
Feeling you gently touch the back of my neck when we are driving.

The security I feel when you are by my side at night.
Leading a normal life.
Going grocery shopping together.
Backing the car into the garage for me.
Washing the dishes when I cook

Before I was married I would look at couples and what I craved was not the romance or the hearts and flowers but the companionship. I would see couples in stores or at the hospital and you would see the husband gently touch the back of the wifes neck or touch her hand and to me that would express more about what love really is than all the romance,cards and flowers could ever do.I think finding your soul mate really is about finding the one person you can be yourself with, your best friend.I was lucky enough to find it and I hope you were too.

Hope You all Have a Wonderful Day.

The photo is of a heart stone I found at the beach in Jan. It looks to be a piece of coral but I found it by a tree stump in a park about 1/4 from the beach by the side of a coastal stream.I collect heart rocks and this one was a pocket of delight that day.

Believe in love. Believe in magic. Believe in Santa Claus. Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don't, who will?
Jon Bon Jovi

I always knew Bon Jovi was a wise soul.

Loved reading this heartfelt post. In the long run it is truly those sweet gestures that fill the void--especially backing the car in the garage :O)
And the heart shaped rock--another treasure.
Thanks for sharing!
