Today there will be thousands of guys trying to write that special note to their special love. I’m one of those guys. But first I must come clean about my special person in my life.

Last week my wife, my partner, my friend, soul-mate was scheduled to go on a trip. Not just any trip, it was a mission trip. I believe it could have changed her life for the better. I believe serving your higher power transcends the effort required. Now this is a good thing. But I must admit I was becoming more and more anxious as the days drew closer. I am not sure what my fear was all about, was it that she was going to a foreign country, to a village with other missionaries? Was it the fact I did not know if I could visit with her via phone or computer? Was it about her safety? Truth is I really did not want her to go, which is a bit sad for me to admit. It was selfish.

Due to a family emergency she did not make the trip, I was relieved of the worry.

I should want to share this wonderful gift with everyone. Again I must admit that I want to share her, so long as she is not too far away.

Rockie you are my valentine, I love you dearly. If I hold on too tight it is because I love you so much. I am so happy we found each other.

Thank you for sharing your life with me.
