Valentine’s Day, with Love

Valentine’s Day can be fraught with angst.

angst over what to do for Valentine's DayAs one husband put it, “For Valentine’s Day, men are always worrying ‘how can I not mess this up?'”

But they’re not the only ones.  Women are often at a loss as to how to recognize Valentine’s Day, as well.

So, here’s a simple yet meaningful idea for anyone:  write a Love Letter.  We’re not talking about signing a store-bought card.  Instead, consider a mushy, romantic, pour-your-heart-out, honest-to-goodness, handwritten letter.

A Love Letter costs little to nothing, yet it may be treasured for a lifetime…and beyond.

Consider this excerpt from one that’s over 100 years old:

Valentine's Day - Love is Forever

 “Best & sweetest wife in all the world, so refined & queenly & royal in nature & gentle & modest in disposition: you are womanhood’s ideal & the fairest & prettiest flower among flowers…My heart is full of love to you…”

It’s from my grandfather to my grandmother, dated August 16, 1901.  He outlived her by 50 years, never re-married, and passed away in 1984 at age 106.  Though I never knew my grandmother, I feel I do…through this little letter, a testament to their love.

We certainly express ourselves differently today.  But, in our high-tech world, it’s the things done by hand that are becoming scarce and, therefore, more meaningful and memorable.

This Valentine’s Day, why not take pen in hand.  It may just be the most treasured gift of all.

California Concierge gives me the freedom to have fun in my down time. I use them for everything from booking tours for my visitors to weekly grocery shopping, errand running and overseeing home repair projects. They even delivered personal items to me from home when I was hospitalized and cleared the refrigerator of items that would spoil before my return. They are life savers.
