Happy Valentine's Day - Blog Hop Day 4

Imagine my surprise when my doorbell rang at 7:30 this morning and my boyfriend stood their with the dozen red roses pictured. Valentine's Day isn't about how much you received, it's about what is in your heart. I'd thank to thank everyone for stopping by. I was floored at all the hits I received from all over the world. I am glad that I touched your heart. And please, take a moment to comment and leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win.

Happy Valentine's Day!

A Valentine’s Day Celebration of Love

Love can show up in some of the most peculiar places,
when you least expect it.
Sometimes it’s right there in front of you
with obstacles standing in its way.
That night, when you appeared in front of me
I knew what needed to be done.
It took many days to open up
be willing to take that chance, letting you into my life,
never realizing it would be a life changing.

As our relationship grows, so do my feelings.
The walls I had up, start to slowly deteriorate.
Feelings I thought had died come back to life.
My passion ignites, my heart radiates.
Love takes over my life.

Some days love comes easy,
others you have to work hard at it.
Being with you is the easy part,
the part I love the best.
Since you’ve been a part of my life,
I have come alive, my life full of love and happiness.

I never thought I’d fall in love again.
I thought my life was over and then came you.
We are good for each other
balancing our lives together as one.

You make me happy and I know you feel the same.
We’ve become best friends and lovers.
Even though we have differences,
we are loyal and dedicated to one another.

In the past I let loneliness take over my life
secluding me from the rest of the world.
Now I feel peace and love
and will do everything in my power to keep it intact.

No one can predict the future or know where things will go.
But having you by my side I know that love will always be a part of my life.
