Happy Valentine

In the Shakespearean play, Romeo and Juliet, Lord Capulet holds a dinner party for the ladies in Verona. As Juliet enters the room, Romeo catches a glance of her beauty and is spell-bound. Romeo is captured by her stunning and entrancing beauty. One person brilliantly explains, “She is flawlessly exquisite.” Then Romeo says,

O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear

Like the Ethiopian’s backdrop brings the luster and sparkle to the jewel earring, my wife brings color and glisten to my life. Her beauty—and I do not just mean physical beauty, but mental, spiritual, emotional beauty, etc.—is incomparable and indescribable. She is the gentle breeze on a cool evening and the warmth from the sun on a spring day
