Happy Valentines Day,
A lot of people poo-poo valentines day, saying that that the whole idea is to boost the profits of the profits of greeting card manufacturers, florists and those companies that make soft toy teddy bears with 'I love you' written on their bellies.
Today like any other day is a day where you can appreciate your partner and how they enrich your life. The only difference is that today all the hype and commercialization gives you the chance to either focus on it, or it gives you an excuse to dismiss it all as a load of bunk.
When we were married, I spoke to our guests about how the ancient Greeks had muses who were the beautiful daughters of the gods and inspired them to write, paint and make music. In that same way I felt my wife Andrea was a gift from above, sent to take the slobby, thoughtless bogan that I am and inspire me to be a better person.
And inspire me she does...... Every day, not just today
Happy Valentines day Bubs
