Tomorrow marks our first Valentine's Day in our new home and I want to mark it with wine, roses, and my love and appreciation to Donna for the bold move she's made, and her belief in me. A friend told me this move would at first be "You and Donna against the world." He was saying we'd feel really alone in this new place until we became accustomed to it and made friends. He went through a similar experience some years ago. And he's right, but then again, it's always been she and I against the world in a lot of respects.
Now the world is hard thing to struggle with, especially at this point in human history. I've alluded to a lot of that in this journal and will have more to say about it. Indeed, I had thought to write a longer, more intense entry this time about the current state of world affairs, but decided to hold off on that and think brighter thoughts. It is a long weekend that begins with Valentine's Day, so, let's lighten up...for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
May St Valentine's blessings be yours, and may the love of family and friends fill your life.
And if you're fortunate enough to be sharing your journey with your soulmate, let them know you're glad they're with you, and that you wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
In the words of one of my favorite Disney songs:
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you.
