Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I was spurred by our friend Ruth Meek to check out Steve Stephens web site where I found this very nice list of ways to love your spouse. I have to say, that neither Jon nor I are spurred on by grand gestures, but the small things really mean a lot. I hope you enjoy this … and that it can encourage each of us to think about ways to love those in our life – no matter how cheesy :)

Thanks for walking the road with me.
