February, the month of love is here and Valentine’s Day is around the corner. We both know what most of the couples are planning for this day. Surprise dinners, gifts, movies, long drives and what not. The list of ideas can just go on and on. All these years I craved for these surprises from you. And I still remember how upset I used to get when you didn’t feel the excitement for Valentine’s Day as I did. I still have the letters I forced you to write. Those are my priceless possessions.
But things have changed this year. In fact ever since we became parents. The day begins with chores around our son and ends the same way. You and I hardly get anytime to talk to each other. Of course, I do complain a lot about my day or the things I couldn’t do. But we do not get quality time to spend with each other like we used to. How I miss those vacations where we just lay beneath the sun near the sea and saw the waves hit us. Hence, this Valentine’s Day, I do not want a card, letter, jewellery or flowers but
Let’s promise each other these …
1) Time Time Time ! Even if its just ten minutes in a day. Lets spend quality time with each other.
2) Watch a TV series together. You can choose one and lets watch an episode every night or alternate nights. Or a movie every weekend.
3) Let me sleep for a bit longer over the weekends. You know how sleep deprived I am.
4) A few baby free hours over the weekend. And I promise I won’t complain if you come late on the working days
5) Cook for me. Like you used to. I know you can make only a few dishes but I promise I won’t judge. In return, I will try my hands on baking.
6) Confess our love to each other more often. Like we used to !
7) Let’s start working out. We both know we need to get fit. And it’s now or never. Let’s motivate each other to take care of our health and fitness.
I would like to end this letter with my favourite quote from A walk to remember :
“Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offence and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.”
