The best advice I ever received about love!

I Love Valentines! Remember in grade school the decorated box on the teachers desk where we put all our Valentine cards for our friends. I still have some of them:) Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
Although my Uncle John is no longer with me his words of wisdom are only a thought away.  A man I had been dating was complaining to me about how far he had to drive to get to my house. Out of this situation came the best advice about love my Uncle John ever gave me. He said, "If a man does not put your comfort before his own you should have nothing to do with him."  My Aunt and Uncle were happily married for 53 years. I feel my Uncle knew what he was talking about. He told my Aunt everyday of their marriage how much he loved her.  After my Aunt was diagnosed with cancer she went out shopping every day and my Uncle never understood why; until after her death. When Uncle John went up to the attic, he found boxes and boxes of clothing that my Aunt bought for him: underwear, T-shirts, socks etc. She left a letter, in it she wrote, "I don't want you to be alone," consider marrying again and she named the woman who she thought would be a good wife for him. 
He never took her advice.  My Valentine wish for you dear reader is that you experience a love which endures the test of time.
