Several years ago an elderly couple lived next door to my friend and she was always commenting about how sweet they were to each other and how sad it was that his health was so poor that he was no longer able to take her dancing, something they both enjoyed doing. One Valentine's day my friend shared this story with me.
Valentine's Day was near when the elderly women found her husband crying and, of course, wanted to know what was wrong. He told her it was the first time in their 53 years of marriage he was not able to leave the house to get her a Valentine card and he wanted her to have a card to show his love. She was touched and replied that she didn't need a card...she knew he loved her. But he didn't take comfort in the fact she knew he loved her, he had never missed giving her a card and he was broken hearted, not only about the card, but that he was confined to bed.
Later, she walked into the bedroom with a hat box filled with every card he had ever given her and told him to take all the time he needed, but she was sure there was a card somewhere in that box that he would like to give again and she knew it would be a surprise to her as she was not able to recall every card.
The next day he gave her that one special card he had "shopped" for and together, laughing and crying, they shared years of memories while looking at all the cards in the hat box, truly a box filled with love.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day, I hope your day is filled with love.
