I wanted to share a beautiful love story. It’s about my Grandfather Judge Franklin H Pierce and my grandmother, Hilda Pierce.
Papa was such a wonderful grandfather, he spoiled us and made us feel precious. He was an outdoorsman, great friend and businessman, and a sharp dresser.
Mama was so creative, she was a poet, played piano, loved flowers, and art.
They seemed so glamorous! My sister and I loved to play in all my Mama’s beautiful evening gowns and fancy shoes.
He was so loving and romantic to Mama, always surprising her with gifts and notes.
We found this incredible gift from him to Mama – and how sweet is this! He made these “Love Knots” for her – she could pull one each week.
Guys – if you are looking for a last minute Valentine’s Gift that will knock her socks off, you can borrow his idea. 😉
Some of the beautiful, swoon worthy ideas for dates:
“Let’s make some candy, just for fun, even if it is fattening.”
“This weekend would be fun to just be lazy.”
“This knot entitles you to a pretty gown at some dress shop because I love you.”
“Let’s take a walk together because I love you.”
“I’ll turn the TV off and let’s go to the museum because I love you.”
“Let’s just you and me take a long ride, and enjoy each other all alone.”
“Let me read you some poetry because I love you.”
“Let’s talk just for fun, all about what we used to do.”
“Let’s call the neighbors and have a little party so I can show you off.”
Papa understood the way to a woman’s heart is thru PRESENCE. Not Presents. Being there. Giving your time to her without expectation. Such a beautiful gift.
Thought this was a beautiful inspiration of love for this Valentine’s Week.
Shower your loved ones with your presence.
Sending you lots of love!!
