Oh boy!! Hallmark has gotten me all teary eyed. I watched this video earlier this week as one of my Facebook friends shared it and I thought it would be a great way to close the week out as Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Hallmark challenged couples to describe their feelings for the one they love without using the word “Love.” They filmed the experiment as part of their Put Your Heart to Paper campaign. The point was to get them to dig deeper and really put their heart on paper. I watched all the videos, but this one really touched me. Mainly because it featured a couple of color and secondly it’s rare to see a black man display such emotion the way this one did. Not that this doesn’t happen but we just don’t SEE it, so it was very heartwarming and touching. Married for 15 years Hiram knew that Felicita would be his wife as a teenager. And he was right! Their reaction to each other’s words is truly priceless.

So, I challenge you this weekend to go beyond saying I Love You..Happy Valentine’s Day!
