Happy Valentines Day!!!

I have been saving this photo for a couple of weeks now ,just for Valentines Day.
Are they my flowers?
I have to admit they are not, will I get any ?probably not, whose are they?
My daughter got these from her Boyfriend for the anniversay of their going out with each other for 3 years.

Me I won't get flowers, what I do have is a loving husband who comes home every night,
Who never fails to kiss me goodbye in the morning regardless of what time it is or if I am asleep.
Who never complains when it is his job to put the garbages out and bring them.
Who always does the heavy lifting.
Who warms the car for me before we go out or makes sure the aircon is running so that the temperature is just right.
Who never complains if I do not feel like cooking. 
Who turns a blind eye to how much I spend on shopping for clothes.
Who hates to paint but will still do it if I ask nicely.
Who will make me a cup of coffee even after he has worked all day.
Who has worked 6 to 7 days a week since we have been married to give us the best lifstyle he can.
Who still makes my heart beat a little faster when he walks into the room after 28 years of marriage.
No I won't be getting flowers but that is ok :) sometimes its what you do!
 not what you buy!

  2. I love it Sharon! What a wonderful hubby you have and I just love that he can still make your heart skip a beat. I have one of those as well! :)
    Happy Valentines day!

  3. I hope your husband reads your post ... it is very touching and sweet!

  4. Lovely roses, but I agree that the every day actions mean so much.
    Happy Valentines day to you and yours.

  5. Wow, you hit it on the nail head..he's definitely a keeper ~ reminds me of Mr. Vintage ~ Happy Valentines Day ;-)

  6. Sounds like a "keeper" to takes such a long time for us to realize the things that are really important in our lives...and you certainly have the important things in your marriage!!!

  7. Your husband is a SUPER STAR!!!
    I hope you have a great Valentine's Day!

  8. Beautiful post about your sweetie. He sounds wonderful. Happy Valentine's Day.

  9. Sharon you are describing true love and your husband's definitely a keeper! Lovely mosaic!
    ♥ Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

  10. I just have this feeling that you are still going to get flowers, if anyone in this family reads your blog! Be sure to let me know if I a right. He sounds like a keeper!


  11. .......and that's the best sort of love to have! He's definitely a keeper!

  12. I know exactly what you mean, besides it's mr w's I should buy him flowers!

  13. Beautiful photo of roses. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  14. Yes, a wonderful hubby, and I'm sure you treat him the same way.

    Beautiful red roses, lovely for your daughter, and lovely photos.

    Sadly Valentines Day has become some sort of a contest for women to be able to show off what their man came up with.... I was reading a par in the Sunday paper about it yesterday written by a woman, that a man can never win whatever gift he produces, and I have to agree. And I've seen women send gifts to themselves in offices.

    Love and hugs,

  15. Yes, that's the kind of husband I have, too. Showing love everyday is more important than all the gestures once a year. That said, I do love it when he does bring me flowers!

  16. Happy Valentine's Day to you! I found you through Debbiedoo's. I'm following you now. Come be my bloggy friend!


  17. Dear Sharon,
    Our "guys" are the mine tends to get a tad OLDER, it's the warmth and knowing each other's comfort zone that makes a good relationship..Have a Happy Valentine's Day..
    Yours Sincerely
    Thanks for paying me a visit!

  18. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Susan and Bentley

  19. Now that is what Valentines Day is all about! Wonderful story!
    I'm following you now too!

  20. Beautiful story, made me really think about that good stuff they do...glad I popped in from Debbies. Happy Valentines Day to you, would love you to pop in and say hi

  21. Flowers that last a few days or a love that's still going after 28 years? I'd say you got the better deal! Sweet love story:)

  22. Beautiful roses. But I was wondering if you husband gives lessons to other husbands?? ;) You truly are blessed, thanks for sharing.


  23. You are so right, It is the everyday love that counts. Thanks for sharing

  24. This is so inspirational because it says so much about the kind of man your husband is and the women you are. He is a keeper. I know I have one like that too, the second time around. You can always buy yourself flowers, but to have a man like that every day is a beloved gift that no romantic once a year gift could compare to. You have the "REAL THING" for sure. Blessings

  25. Okay, I have to say that sounds EXACTLY like my husband! For some reason he has this mental block about Valentine's Day. Like he's just going to boycott it or something!! But he is so thoughtful in so many other ways, I suppose I can forgive one silly thing like not bringing home flowers! We get our thoughtful gestures all year long!
