It’s Valentine’s Day again… the very thought of this day makes the ladies hearts all aflutter and strikes fear into the hearts of their guys. Didn’t we just finish with Christmas? Now I have to come up with something else? Geez! You can do the same old thing, a card, roses, chocolate. Sure, I love to get flowers… most women do. And candy is nice, except I just started my New Year’s Resolution diet. A card is good, especially if you take the time to write a special heartfelt note inside.   But this year, try to find something that really says I Love You!

Well, guys let me give you an unusual suggestion. Buy her a security system. I know, a little weird. But this is what it says.

“I am here to protect you. If anything ever happened to you, I could not live another day. I would be lost without you. I cannot do this alone.”

It says, “Nothing is more important to me than you and the kids and our life. I would not want anything to disrupt that. I could not live with myself if someone hurt you.”

“I am here for the long haul. I see us together for the next 50 years.” Flowers die in a week, candy is gone in a minute, but security will keep you safe every day for years.

“I want you to feel secure in our home, even if I’m not home. And I will feel more comfortable knowing you are safe at home.”

So you can be like every other guy out there; buy a dozen road-side roses, a grocery store card and a drugstore box of chocolates. Or you can be a little unconventional and get a real gift that says, “Darling, I love you more than life itself.”
