Love doesn't come in fifty shades of grey . . .

You'd Think That People Would Have Had Enough
Of Silly Love Songs.
But I Look Around Me And I See It Isn't So.
Some People Wanna Fill The World With Silly Love Songs.
And What's Wrong With That?
I'd Like To Know,
'Cause Here I Go Again
I Love You,

I Can't Explain
The Feeling's Plain To Me;
Say Can't You See?
Ah, She Gave Me More,
She Gave It All To Me
Now Can't You See,
What's Wrong With That
I Need To Know,
'Cause Here I Go Again

 I Love You.

Love Doesn't Come In A Minute,
Sometimes It Doesn't Come At All
I Only Know That When I'm In It

There's been a lot of talk about lately about the new film, 50 Shades of Grey.  I did not read the book and I won't be seeing the film.   And . . .  it's not because I am a prude, or I am old, or because the flush of young love has long since faded . . .

It's because I love my husband and I respect what we have together.   My marriage is sacred and a gift from God.   I will not have what we share together sullied by what the world perceives to be love.  I will honor my husband in other ways as he will honor me . . . with values that are wholesome and good . . .  and eternal . . . and filled with respect for each other and for what we share together.

That is the type of love that families are built upon and the type of love which is a solid foundation for everything else and does not leave you wanting or seeking  . . . more.  It satisfies . . .  completely.

Anything else is just an imitation . . . second rate.   I will not settle for anything less than what we already have together . . . .  because this is for forever  . . .  not just for now.

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

“Love is that condition in which 
the happiness of another person 
is essential to your own.” 
~Robert A Heinlein

And I do too.


  1. Good morning to you Marie. I hope you have a lovely day and enjoy it immensely.

    My girls have been spoiled my their beaus. Miss 21 has six long stem roses in a long. long box and chocolates. She has now gone out to dinner.

    Miss 18 has a beautiful bouquet of red spray roses, with 4 long stem red roses, some greenery, a tiny red glittery heart and tiny teddy bear. There was also a bag with packets of her favourite lollies, a huge tin of chocolate and a tiny little box. In her joy about the flowers she forgot to look in the bag and to give him her gifts. So when they come home they have more to open. They have gone to the drive in. I am glad this one lets you choose the movies you want to watch on the 3 fields. They really want to see the Kingsmen but it is paired with 50 shades of they don't want to see...but Connor has planned how to avoid that and see another movie.

    Today I must admit I would like a huge hug. Oh well I am better off now.

  2. I think all the trappings of Valentines day is meant for the young Suzan, and more power to them. It's sweet. You are only young once! When you get older you realize love is more than hearts and flowers and yes, sex. (Did I say that?) Anyways. I Hope that one day you are able to find love because you surely deserve it. Sending you a hug hug through the internet waves. I hope you feel it, xxoo

  3. I haven't read the book either..
    Did you see who is playing the lead?
    Not interested though at all..I don't know why?Cute cute pics Marie..enjoy your day together:)

  4. I hadn't seen who was playing the lead Monique! I hope you have a lovely day with your J and your alphabet boys and the girls. I have a prime rib in the oven as I type this. We are looking forward to a rare treat! (No pun intended!) xxoo

  5. Love is everything and I'm one who treasures it more and more every day. Love in the little things and the big. Hope you have a Happy Valentines Day!

  6. Love with a pure heart!

    Happy Valentine's Day to you, Todd and Mitzie Doodle dog!
    Big love and hugs! xoxoxoxox

  7. And you have so much of it to treasure with all of those kiddles and grand babies Pam! YOu are a very lucky woman! Hope your day was super too! xoxo

    You know it Valerie! Hope you had a happy Valentines Day too. Love and hugs to all the Hanchetts! xoxo
