For Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day, so I will be hopelessly romantic and post this love song dedicated to Mr. Tom Schlueter. After almost 16 years together, I fall in love with the man every time he walks in the front door. And I can’t help it. 😉 Bocelli says it best.

    I watched that concert when it was PBS and loved it. Real music in a beautiful setting there by the lake with the fog. That song happens to be “our song” so thanks for posting it. Bocelli has quite a gift.

    That was beautiful! Hopeless romantic here as well. My husband (going on 27 years) is the kindest, most thoughtful, best person you can imagine. I fell for him when I heard him talking with a seriously mentally challenged woman (through his work) and he was so patient and respectful and sweet. There is nothing more appealing than pure goodness–and it just gets more so over time.

    I love this. Thank you for posting the bocelli version which is the classiest of all. The looks on the faces of the audience is really lovely to see. Love hasn’t gone out of fashion yet, the good old fashioned kind that lasts.

    Donna you brought tears to my eyes because you reminded me of how my own husband has connected to the mentally challenged including two co-worker’s sons and a friend’s son. I’ve seen their faces light up when my husband is around and how excited they are to talk to him.
    Yes, there still are good men in this world!

  5. Donna says:

    Lisa, you are so right–and they are to be prized. Instead, they are often overlooked because modesty goes along with goodness. A blog like this one is such a welcome relief, in part because it praises goodness such as that in our husbands and Ingrid’s Tom.

    One other tiny story if I may? My husband thought that a dry cleaner had lost one of his sweaters. He told them and they made an insurance claim and paid for it. Months later, he found the sweater and was absolutely devastated. He went right to the cleaner, apologized, and wrote a check for what he’d been paid. Think how many people make false claims to begin with. And how few would have ever insisted on “setting things right.”
