On Valentine’s Day in the small town of Cheboygan, Michigan, I stopped in the local coffee shop to get something to eat, pick up a coffee for my wife and use their internet service. The shop was so small it was impossible not to overhear conversations.
There was a man and wife there probably in their 30’s. I heard them say that they had left the kids with someone and that their Valentine’s date was breakfast out.
There was another man and wife there. I overheard her say she was 67 and they had been married eight years. They just seemed to be enjoying each other.
I thought about how it is possible to enjoy one another and just have a simple Valentine’s celebration. It’s being together and enjoying the day. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.
