Valentine's Day...The Words that Matter

Happy Valentine's...well, almost Valentine's!

Do you have any plans for tomorrow?

My husband and I are going to an RV show.  

Now, I know, you're thinking, wow, Holly your romance authorship is showing!  But I'm going to argue an RV show with my husband is sort of romantic.  

Why?  Because it's with my husband.  After all these years, he's still my favorite person to hang out with.  Whether we're at an RV show, or washing dinner dishes, or reading the paper together.  

The together part is what matters to me.

We're probably not going to exchange cards (we're not card people) and neither of us would fight the crowds to go out for dinner out tomorrow, but we do say the words...the words that matter.  What words are those?  I think they change regularly.  Yes, of course, there's I love you.  And I've always been fond of here I am.  But words like, let's go for a walk.  You are handy. You make me happy.  Oh, and thank you.  Thank you is a very important phrase!

The idea of words having power is a concept that has been woven into so many of my stories.  Sometimes blatantly, sometimes subtly.  

But since tomorrow is Valentine's, I thought the idea of words was something we should talk about.  I hope you have a great day tomorrow...and I hope you remember to say the words that matter the most to you!
