Some Thoughts On Valentine's Day....

Ms. Okie and I decided that we wouldn't do anything special this year for V-Day. (We've been pretty busy doing special things for each other lately.) After all, we agreed, every day is V-Day for us. That was just fine with me, I'm more into real romance, less into cards and gifts, or acting romantic because the calendar on the wall says you should. Romance like cooking dinner for her, when I know she's had a long day and doesn't feel like doing it, or the way she takes care of me completely. She anticipates all of my needs, sometimes before I'm even aware of being in need. I think Romance is more about realizing your differences and EMBRACING them. I believe these are the things that keep our relationship interesting, and allows the fire to keep burning ever stronger. Last night as I lay in bed( this is when I tend to be most contemplative), I thought of our differences, and how those little mundane details of a person's makeup can be so endearing.
For example, Ms. Okie is extremely organized, a LIST MAKER. I am not. She enjoys true crime novels. I'm a fiction guy. I enjoy silly, inane movies, such as Anchorman, Austin Powers, and the like. She detests them. We even disagree on music at times. I have a very hard time falling asleep at night, sometimes taking me hours to find a comfortable position. She can fall asleep within moments, her neck bent and touching the headboard. And for all of our differences, we are probably two of THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE on the planet! We compensate for each others faults, and magnify each others strengths. And it's such a great experience, all at once emotional, comfortable, and exhilirating.
I've learned that appreciating all of our differences has allowed us to share a level of intimacy that most can only wish for, and for that I feel truly inspired.
Although we didn't officially celebrate V-Day, I was silently swept into the whole concept of it, and all that I have expressed here were foremost in my mind for the better part of the day.
And the BEST part of all for me is truly knowing, without a doubt, that Ms. Okie feels the same way. I hope all of you had a great Valentine's Day!
