I want to share with you a little Valentine idea I am doing with our two boys. My goal is to each year make a Valentine card and put it away in a box for their future wife. So, on their first Valentine's Day together as a married couple, he can give them to her (yes, I am also an idealistic romantic).
I talk often about how we are teaching our children to guard their hearts, and in the area of girls I want them to find the girl God has picked just for them without much drama or turmoil before that happens.
Our hearts are the control center for our lives. The Buckaroo's behavior (which does reflect their heart) is important to me but not as important as what is going on in their hearts.
I love being in love with Big Buckaroo and I hope and pray that our marriage is an example of a loving, passionate, romantic love that they will find with their spouse one day. I would be so sad to see them in a boring marriage where they just endure and fulfill their obligation. I don't believe that is what marriage is supposed to be. It is hard work, but I love reaping the benefits of that hard work.
Loving my Big Buckaroo on Valentine's Day and everyday,
The Park Wife
