To Believe in and Protect

Take Valentine’s Day beyond flowers and chocolate this year…

Had one of those AHA moments today…Heard from Shawn, who clued women in on what a man wants from his woman for Valentine’s Day.

 Man’s Valentine Request: 

“Tell us you believe in us. Guys will swim through shark infested waters to bring you iced tea, if they know you believe in them and have their back."

Than, Holly chimed in with what a woman wants from a man on Valentines Day.

Woman’s Valentine Request:

Women want to know that are men love us, cherish us, and will be there to protect us.  That you’re always going to be there. 

So maybe this year you can go the old fashioned route and make your own Valentine with a love letter.  Tell you man that you believe in him, tell him what you appreciate and respect about him. 

Men, find a way to write out the reasons why you cherish your woman.  What you love about her, and your plans to always stand by her side.

Women need to feel loved. Men need to be respected. It doesn't get any easier than that.

Now your POST above seems to prove me wrong, but I think what I am going to say is still true-- why do we (myself included sometimes) refer to grown men mostly as "guys" rather than "men"?  I have listened to you on the radio today use the term "guys" a lot and it is fascinating to me.  I am not AT ALL offended by the term, but I hear it everywhere.  And I wonder if it isnt an outward expression of an inward reality?  When I was young, we rarely used the term "guy", and it was standard to call ANY MALE over the age of 20 or so (sometimes even 18 or 19) as a "man."  

Now, if you refer to someone, say under 30 or 35, as a man, you get weird looks, or people think you are trying to pump up their image.   You even get chuckles or people trying to chime in and comment as if someone 24 years old ISNT supposed to be a fully grown man.  Interesting.

My husband passed away 3 years ago and the thing that stands out about gifts is a card he gave me for my birthday the year before he passed.It said this gift just isn't enough for all the Love you have given me. I cherish card, I don't even remember the gift, but those words keep me going even though he is gone.

Wow, your comment on what a woman wants is so true.  I didn't have that in my marriage.....cit has ended and I did not choose that, but I realize that if we had protected each other and our marriage then maybe we had a chance.  I am not looking forward to tomorrow, it is one more painful reminder that my marriage failed.
