Becoming Juliet/Happy Valentine's Day

               " My crown is in my heart, not on my head;
                 Not decked with diamonds and Indian stones,
                 Nor to be seen. My crown is called content:
                 A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy."
                                                 ~William Shakespeare~

     The famed Erma Bombeck once wrote about how her husband didn't take her bowling, didn't eat fancy foods, didn't do this or that and I laughed and rooted with her until she ended the column with how he went to work every day, how he mowed the huge yard, how he loved his children and that was the beginning of my transformation. Moral of the story for me was to stop complaining. Stop sharing problems with my friends and love my life. We have been exchanging Valentine's for thirty three years now. When it comes to love, you absolutely must put on the rose colored glasses! Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I can't wait to find that one who waits. Or can I? The question mark pushes him away once more.
