On Valentine's Day and Love

I've spent many Valentine's Days alone.
I spent one trying to drive to Maryland in the snow with my brand-new husband - that was forty-one years ago and he's no longer my husband.
I've spent several with the significant-other of that time in my life.
I will spend tomorrow with the gentleman I suspect will be my last Valentine - not that he or I will be going anywhere soon.
Maybe I should have said my "lasting" Valentine.
It took me many years to realize what was really important - in life and love.
Honesty, loyalty, intelligence, humor, a love of life...
Lucky me that I found all of that in my sixties.
Oh, not just in the man I love...
But I also found them in me.

Happy Valentine's Day.
