Taken from: The Velveteen Rabbit, by: Margery Williams 

 “What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side…”Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out-handle?”

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse.  “It’s a thing that happens to you.  When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful.  “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse.  “You become.  It takes a long time.  That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.  Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.  But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

The Man I Love

The man I love was sent from above,

He is perfect for me.

I love his height, his hands and eyes,

His smile still mesmerizes me.

Oh, how precious that he can preach,

And one of the best when the Word he does teach.

I love how he prays,

And connected to God stays,

I love him in so many ways.

A great father is he

This man of my dreams,

I hold him in highest esteem.

 

Happy Valentine’s to my one and only, Nathan J. Hurst
