Girls Write Out

Happy Valentine's Day! The day where people express their love with flowers, candy, cards, etc. I've celebrated 38 Valentine Days with my hubby and they grow sweeter every year. No, we don't always buy each other things, but our love grows deeper, and that's what truly matters. Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day with the love of your life!

Now, having said that, I've discovered an old love. That's right. The Andy Griffith Show! I watched it as a kid, but then not for years. Since I've been too sick to do anything but watch TV lately, I'm hooked on Andy and Barney.

What draws me to them isn't so much the comedy as it is the community of Mayberry. I love how the characters interact and care about one another. I love how Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney & Opie sit on the front porch and talk, sing with a guitar, and just plain sit in one another's company. Sometimes those things mean more than candy, cards and flowers.

Our world is fast-paced. Computers, ipods, iPhones, all lift us from whom we're actually physically with and take us to someone elsewhere. Not that that's bad, but it can be if we neglect the people close at hand.

Today is a day for love. Tell someone you love them today. Make a phone call. Go for a visit. Life is so short. Let the people who matter to you know that they matter to you. Every day is a gift--with or without chocolates (did I just say that?).

In the meantime, Happy Valentine's Day!! Make it count!!

It's my hope that my mansion in Heaven has a front porch. I'll sit there all day lone (when I'm not over singing praises) and watch as John and Peter walk by. I'll wave to Paul while sitting with my writer friends, plotting a great anthology. ;o) Yep, that's Heaven to me.
