Thank You, Google!

It's February 14 and when I went to "google" something today, I discovered this:

I must say, the fact that some graphic designer chose two elderly people to represent the "day of love" took me by surprise. Most people associate Valentine's Day with bright new, budding love. They think of dark red hearts filled with rich chocolates, roses by the dozen, of beautiful young people exhibiting the exuberance, passion and expectations of wondrous things to come.

If we are fortunate, we do get all those things and there is nothing like it. But even more wonderful is the looking back on love, it's evolution, it's changes, the savoring of memories (good and bad) created only after years of loving someone. Next week is our 31st anniversay, far fewer years than the couple above has had. John and I have some years to go before we resemble them but I can look forward to becoming them. And, in my old age, to walking on this beach with my Valentine.....just as we did 31 years ago on our honeymoon.

Happy anniversary, John...Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone....and thank you, Google.
