Valentine’s Day is special for me. After losing my first husband in a car accident I never thought I would find love again, but 13 years ago I did just that. Cupid’s arrow pierced my heart.
I was seeing a man I met in a grief support group. His wife had died around the same time as my husband. We started going out together and then on Valentine’s Day we went to our favorite restaurant. I went to the bathroom and when I returned on my plate was an engagement ring.
I was speechless—well almost speechless. I looked at his face in surprise and said,
“What is this?”
I was a bright one wasn’t I?
He looked apprehensive waiting for an answer.
My answer came in the form of a wordless smile and a nod of my head. (I told you I was speechless)
And then he said:
“I wanted to lock it in.”
Romantic or practical, you be the judge?
