The Love of My Life!


Publix was advertising Valentine’s Day cards:  “Buy one, Get one free.”  I thought that was funny.  When I was 10 years old, I might have thought a pair of sweethearts was a good idea.  Two for the price of one.  No longer!

 The phrase “The Love of My Life” has become popular recently.  I like it.  Maybe other folks legitimately have a hard time narrowing down their options.  For me, this is a no-brainer. 

 To be sure, I loved my mother.  Anyone who knows me knows I adore my daughters more than words can express.  Pretty waitresses easily charm me. My friends could give you a short list of actresses whose movies I do not miss.  As a teenager and as a young man, I enjoyed romances that were important.  Affection?  Yes.  Regard?  Yes.  Fondness?  Yes.

The Love of My Life?  Sarah Craig Aldridge, known to all as Sally.   For 40-plus years Sally has bewitched me.  Who can explain love?  We can be independent and we can be together.  But, she is the One and Only.  She is the Love of My Life. 

Thanks, Sally.  Happy Valentine’s Day.
