My wife makes my heart beat -- and many times, she makes it skip a beat. She's done this for 35 sweet years. Have I fallen to the marketing of Hallmark to make it so? Nope. Do I ignore Hallmark's main cash-cow day? Heavens no. (Think I'm crazy? ha) However, do I allow it to prompt me to HAVE to get her something...um, anything.... No. I love my bride 365 days a year. Each day has a heart attached to it. My heart. And each weekend I am amazed that I get the honor of hanging out with my Susan. What caused this? Sweet tender, gushy love? Maybe at first. Maybe. I think I fell in love with her mind and her compassion, her strength of character and her way with people. Not just her kisses/Dennis Mansfield. More here.
