It is Ronald and Nancy Reagan's wedding anniversary (1952).
Make the time today to go to the bookstore to buy ( or if you can't, then order online or visit a local bookstore, to share this with your significant other):
"Love You, Ronnie" by Nancy Reagan, Ronald Reagan
"No matter what else was going on in his life or where he was--travel ling to make movies for G.E., in the California governor's office, at the White House, or on Air Force One, and sometimes even from across the room--Ronald Reagan wrote letters to Nancy Reagan, to express his love, thoughts, and feelings, and to stay in touch. Through letters and reflections, the characters, personalities, and private lives of a president and his first lady are revealed.
Nancy Reagan comments on the letters and writes with love and insight about her husband and the
many phases of their life together."
There are many shorter, and perhaps more moving notes, than this excerpt, but it refers to their anniversary, so I quote this one:
Excerpt from I Love You, Ronnie
Dear St. Valentine,
I'm writing to you about a beautiful young lady who has been in this household for 25 years now - come March 4.
I have a request to make of you but before doing so feel you should know more about her. For one thing she has 2 hearts - her own and mine. I'm not complaining. I gave her mine willingingly, and like it right where it is. Her name is Nancy but for some time now I've called her Mommie and don't believe I could change.
My request of you is - could you on this day whisper in her ear that someone loves her very much and more and more each day? Also tell her, this "Someone" would run down like a dollar clock without her so she must always stay where she is.
Then tell her if she wants to know who that "Someone" is to just turn her head to the left. I'll be across the room waiting to see if you told her. If you'll do this for me, I'll be very happy knowing that she knows I love her with all my heart.
