So, we got this piece of junk mail from our insurance company. An advertisment for life insurance with a little 'happy valentines' note from our agent and a poem. I shall recite it now for your enjoyment.
Because he loved me, brought to you by youdoitforlove.org
He did the dishes
Rubbed my feet
Surprised me with tulips
Took me to musicals even though he didn't like them
Carried my bags while I did the shopping
Held my hand
He died of cancer four years ago.
Because he loved me,
I can stay in our home.
I can be here for our children.
I can afford to pay for their college education.
I can worry about the other things in life besides money.
He still loves me. And he still shows it.
Wow...that is so...so.........morbid. I get the importance of life insurance but it almost seems sleazy to try and drive it home on Valentine's...with a poem about a dead spouse. Happy Valentine's...hope your spouse doesn't die!
