With valentines day just a day or two away I was feeling a little sad that I wouldn't be getting chocolates or roses or love notes from Jay. Then it dawned on me that I have lots of them stashed away in my cedar chest in my bedroom. So I went up there and took all the "treasures" off the top of the chest and opened it up. There inside was a little box filled with letters that Jay sent to me when I was still in high school and he was in college.
When I was in high school I took a wood shop class. My brother was in the same class. I always thought that what I made was cooler than what he made. This is a little wooden box that I made in that class.
When Jay went to college he would send me letters and I would save all of them inside that box.
Boy, I'm glad that I did. It was so cool to look at them and read them.
I really did get valentines this year!!! And I will take them out every year and smile and be glad that I have them.
I guess he really did love me. After all, he was in college, playing football and still taking the time to write love letters to me.
It's funny because my mom worked at the post office in the little town where we lived and on the front of the envelopes it would only say my first name and the name of the town with the zip code and I would still get it. (Thanks mom)
When I hear songs on the radio singing about loving someone, it doesn't make me sad. It makes me glad that I had that. Jay was my love song. He still is my love song. He always will be.
We lived our love song. He made all my dreams come true.
Happy Valentines Day my friends. Hold the one you love a little tighter. Write them a love note. Let them know how much they mean to you. Not just because it's Valentines Day but just because.
