Today I’m dipping back into the personal electronic archives to share a little Hank Huckle Valentine’s Day history – it’s the exact video personal I posted that brought me to my now wife Kendra! Well, actually it was also due to a little intervention from some folks in our mutual church group, but this video is the first time Kendra saw me and it made her go full team ahead across the romance ocean. But, that’s just Kendra’s way.
Now, as to the slightly embarrassing video, I’m just going to take a deep breath, and get right to it…
Honestly, it’s a little funny to look back at. I was so young, serious, and naive back then. I was trying so hard to appear business-like, I almost don’t recognize myself! I’m such a different person with my wife Kendra in my life, even though we spend so much time apart — she’s frequently visiting her family back in her homeland and bringing them suitcases of canned goods. This is a little bit of an aside, but Kendra’s family loves Jiffy Mix cornbread and canned SPAM so much, and they just have a hard time getting it fresh in their home country. Have you tried fresh SPAM? Anyhow, Kendra frequently heads out there for a visit, food drop, and a traditional multi-day canned food banquet. That’s just the way they do things.
So, on this Valentine’s Day, I not only want to salute my special lady, but I also want single out all you who might still be looking for your romantical connection. As my video proves, your Valentine will find you no matter how serious and cheese filled your video profile might be. So keep fighting the good fight and may cupid’s arrow find its mark through your tangled life forest!
In the meantime, treat yourself to some quality Valentine’s chocolates. You deserve them.
