Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I thought it might be fun to recount some of the kindest acts of love you’ve done or experienced yourself.

My story is very simple. When I was in college, I worked in a hotel restaurant as a hostess. A waiter there named Jason was always very nice to me. One night we were closing down, and for no particular reason, he presented me with a rose. When it came time to go home, he insisted I not walk back to campus, but he’d drive me back. I’d known for a while he could sing, but he never sang in front of people. On the ride back, he waited until just the right moment, then serenaded me with the classic doo-wop song “Good Night Sweetheart”. It’s been nearly 15 years since that night, and every time I hear that song, it still makes me blush.

What’s your story? It could be grand or it could be simple. What’s the sweetest thing you’ve done for love? I’ll take a few of your stories and post them on Monday’s blog.
