Valentine’s Day has passed, so the time has come to share what you did to enter our Romance Your Valentine Contest.
First I must confess that this year was difficult. You see our anniversary is 10 days after Valentine’s Day, so I plan that day and Tom plans our anniversary. Normally this is a lot of fun for me. But this year has been oh so difficult. As you know our granddaughter has been fighting PANDAS and it takes much of our time, prayers and emotional energy. When it was time to think of romancing Tom, my mind was blank. I couldn’t wrap my mind around what to do much less how to pull it off.
Finally, I asked God to help me and He gave me the idea to have a night of remembering. I made the meal we had on our first date (Veal Oscar); We played Romantic Scrabble; I shared a scrapbook I made for Tom over 20 years ago, and more that I choose not to share. 😉
Not all plans are easy to come by, but all are worth the effort. We may not feel like doing it because of outside stressors, but this is when we choose to do it over what we feel or don’t feel. Our Valentine’s evening was one of my favorite ever.
Now it’s your turn to tell us about yours.
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining how you romanced your Valentine. We will choose the best story, solely at our discretion, announcing the winner on Friday, February 21st. That gives you 4 days to submit your entry.
Bonus points if…
