Lord Byron once said, “Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.” If you were to write that on a card and give it to your Valentine, frankly they may think you're crazy. If you were to ask someone what they plan on doing for Valentine’s Day, most will simply say “it’s a Hallmark holiday” or the usual flowers and chocolate. In my opinion Valentine’s Day is just as real a holiday as any other. This Hallmark holiday is true but not for just the business but to put your feelings down on paper. It’s a card you can put away as a keepsake for a rainy gloomy day and to reread it and feel those same feelings. I mean think about how everything just seemed romantic back in the day, war letters, postcards and just heartfelt cards, wouldn’t it be nice if everything were like that again. My lovely Valentine this year is to John. We are both volunteer fire fighters and even that is challenging. John is my Valentine because when the fire field becomes challenging to the point where I just want to quit fire fighting all together and never fire fight again, he is there. Then I find myself waking up for that fire alarm racing to the call like nothings happened because he’s put me right back on my toes. To my John, my Valentine, there are many things I wish I could thank you for but it’s not possible to say without getting so choked up. We have grown together; we have grown to be there for each other after those tough fire calls. I know that you are my perfect valentine because I find myself listening for your voice on the fire radio just to make sure you’re okay, fully knowing I have class bright and early in the morning. I’m at that point in my life where I can find myself doing anything to make sure he comes home safe and although we have had some close calls, God has brought you home to me each and every time I’ve prayed and here you are smiling at me as I write this. I’m truly happy to be spending this Hallmark holiday with you John!
