"Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman"

Have you ever really loved a woman?
Mr. Nielson says he has--me, of course.
 And before you think that that was the cheesiest thing I ever did type,
 consider the lyrics to the cheesy love song by Bryan Adams,
"Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman".
Because they truly are beautiful.
"When you love a woman, you tell her that she's really wanted
When you love a woman, you tell her that she's the one
Cause she needs somebody, to tell her that it's gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really, really really ever loved a woman?"

One day I was driving in the car and listening to Delilah
(because seriously, who doesn't?), and that song came on. 
And I am not ashamed to admit it, but I really love the song. 
 In fact, I am so emotionally involved with it, just the other day over lunch 
with Lucy and Mom, I testified of its truthfulness and even shed a few tears in the process.
And last week I told Mr. Nielson my unabashed affection for it, 
and after dinner he turned it up on the Bose
r e a l l y loud and asked me to dance amid the
post-dinner chaos right there in the kitchen.
That is why I dub
"Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman"
as this years "Love Song 2008".
Mr. Nielson and I have a new love song every year.
 Last year was Paul McCartney's "My Love".
Now excuse me, it's 
Valentines Day and I am going 
to be very busy today getting dolled up for my sweetheart.
Clipping, teasing, applying, and nail-painting are all are on the docket
 for today's activities-- plus a few others which 
are frankly, none of your beezwax.

!!!!This just in: Nie and Mr. Nielson were quoted  here!!!!!
Have a very passionate Valentines day.
