Tuning the heart strings
How much do I love my wife? Well being the search geek that I am, terabytes could not hold all the adjectives that I could amass to merely begin painting a portrait of my devotion. It is a strange thing how over the years one becomes attached to those they love as they would a part of their own being. While of the utmost importance, we can at times forget they are there. It is only in absentia that we truly appreciate the value within our lives.
So why am I on about this now? Well, for starters Valentines is approaching and my blog is truly a place of expression for me, not for revenues
. So I hope you will indulge me.
Secondly, things have been more than a little trying in my little corner of nirvana of late, which is saying something. My wife and I have been together; work, rest and play for nearly 10 years now. We have also been blessed with two angelic (cough cough) children which have been by our side, for better or for worse, in our home office for the last 7 years. We have struggled through much together, from famine to feast. It is never easy living and working together, season come and seasons gone. It has the capacity for complacency if left unchecked.
Over the last while I have found myself adrift in the sea of single parenting with my precarious packages as my better half had some family situations and heartstrings that needed to be played. As I sit here, exhausted, drained and emotionally spent, I cannot imagine how I would ever be able to travel many of the paths I venture upon without my lady love.
My wish for all this Valentines is to remember those you love and imagine a world without them for that is often where the value lies
. And to you my dear, the reason I snuck this post in? I shall always love you and be here to tune those strings should ever the song of love be lost.
Happy Valentines My Love
