Today is my wife’s birthday!
She is ___ years old! (see what I did there?)
Unfortunately, I am not with her; she decided to go to Charleston this week to spend time with our granddaughter. But that doesn’t mean I can’t wish her a happy birthday via the world wide web, right?
Happy birthday, Valerie! I heart you!
My wife’s name is Valerie. Is it any wonder? I mean, she was born just two days before Valentine’s Day (and, coincidentally, on the day my parents got married). Valentine > Valerie = Logical.
You have to admit, Valerie sounds a LOT better than Valentinerie.
Valentinerie… Now that’s a name worth passing around at the maternity ward!
Hmmm. That makes me wonder. What other names parents could name their daughter’s around this time?
- Vilntin (pronounced Valentine)?
Yeah, I think “Valerie” was the best choice.
The Lubsong ♥
Anyway, I wrote Valentinerie…excuse me, Valerie…a love song several years ago (You can be the judge of how much was truly autobiographical).
When I couldn’t figure out how to film myself doing a music video, I went to work with marker, paper, Monkey, and iPhone.
Here is the chocolate-covered fruit of my labor (I said labor…I’ve really got to get down to that maternity ward!).
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Just remember, the truest example of love is God’s love for us. May we love others with such extravagance (1 John 4:19-21).
