You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need
We are just over a month away from Valentine’s Day. This year instead of being disappointed by all the romantic marks my Valentine does not hit on the Big Day, I am going to think about all the little things he does to demonstrate his love for me all year long. Things like changing a flat tire, lighting the pilot light on the wall heater of my new home, crawling under the foundation to check the plumbing, climbing up on the roof to fix the chimney flue, teaching me the finer points of power tools, driving me to visit my ailing parents a thousand miles away, and going along with my foreign film choices count for a lot. Maybe giving me what I need instead of what I want is the most romantic gift of all.
