Unconventional, but Happy

A thousand things he could give me–candy, cards, jewelry, etc. The one thing I want: his hand in mine, home at last after a week away, at my side when I’m scared. As the kids open their valentines, as the world bubbles with romantic tidings, I go for hernia surgery, happy to know that I will at least come home to those I love the most. Having us all together, even under these less-than-optimal conditions, makes for a happy valentine.
