A Time to Love...
Who can ignore the romance, glitter and glamour that this day conjures up. This week, magazines, advertisers and websites are buzzing with romantic tips and gift ideas for men and women. One mens' magazine even had an article on what NOT to give a woman. Did you know that unless the women is the fluffy, cuddly type, that fluffy, cuddly toys are a no-no? And did you know that giving red roses are no longer the romantic thing to do? Pink is the new red! So give a bouquet of pink blooms (yes, roses as well) instead. (BTW these opinions are not necessarily those of the the blogger)
As I browsed through cyberspace and periodical pages, I decided to look for the best tip (to my mind) to post about.
Here it is...
Use Valentine’s Day to share with your children your feelings about one another as a couple.
Share how you two met, how you could not be without that person and how much they mean to you. Although this may seem cheesy, remember that your relationship with your spouse is the most important role model for love and marriage for your children as they grow up. They will imitate you so if you set a good example in your relationship, they are bound to make successful relationship decisions themselves.

The best gift a father can give his children is to love their mother.
