On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile. I am fortunate to know you,

I don't know where you come up with the great quotes all the time but the Valentine quotes are excellent.I love all the foreign language words for I love you.

I wonder if I would've had better luck in my first marriage if I don't let a bird do the choosing? :-)

Happy Valentine's Day to you.

Very nice, KoffeKlatch Gals.

I like this one :

•It's not everyday that I tell you...I love you...Ok, maybe it is, but on Valentine's Day it's the law.

It's genuine and funny at the same time.

Happy Valentine's Day to you. :)

Love and peace, Prasetio
