Young man washing floor in protective glovesI am a pretty romantic guy… I write my own greeting card verses, bring my wife flowers for no reason, and keep an eye out all year for special cards/gifts that I stockpile; but the gift that impressed my wife more than any other cost nothing but time.

One Valentine’s Day I brought my wife flowers, balloons, and a handwritten card, and took her out to dinner. She probably can’t tell you what the card said or where we ate that night, but she remembers the other thing I did that day…

I scrubbed the bathroom from floor to ceiling, including the walls and baseboards! Not exactly what comes to mind when I hear the word “romance”, but it sure thrilled her! I heard her carrying on about it to several of her friends and relatives.
