Romantic vs. practical




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?
