Oh My Goodness… Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away. Now, for many of you (mostly guys) a ‘few weeks’ is forever away. But, now is when for those of us who love romance and flowers (mostly gals) begin thinking about this very special holiday.
Many years ago I learned a trick from a wise florist named Helen who enjoyed a wonderful marriage that lasted over 62 years. Each January she would write notes on small scraps of paper. The message on each note was the same, “Sweetheart, don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is on February 14”. These notes she would place in her husband’s lunch pail, bowling bag, his pants pockets, shoes, and on his car seat. Helen never failed to receive flowers on Valentine’s Day. Guess what? It works for me too!
