A Valentine for You!

Happy Valentine's Day from our family to yours! I hope that no matter what your love life situation, you find that something good happens to you today!

Here's a little trip down memory lane, especially for the single people out there (and a chuckle for the rest of you)...The last couple years before John became my forever Valentine, I decided that I deserved flowers on Valentine's Day just as much as the dating people. I made a promise to myself that I would by my own flowers on Valentine's as a reminder that even though I was sad on Valentine's Day and felt unloved, God still loved me. After all, God made the flowers, so He must want me to have some! Pathetic? Maybe. But it did brighten my day. Even though I will have been married for 7 years this summer, I still have a very sharp memory of what it felt like to be without a Valentine.

Even with a Valentine, today is not going to turn out quite like I had hoped. John is working ALL day and usually does not even get to come home for lunch on Saturdays. Will is sick, so there goes much, if any, chance of getting to surprise John at the store. But I'm just happy to have a wonderful husband that I love very much and who I know loves me. Happy Valentine's Day, John!

I hope that all of you, single or not, consider this your personal Valentine from Will. And if no one brings you flowers, remember that you have my blessing (and God's!) to go buy some for yourself! Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. What an Angel! Jeff is working until Midnight, and Drew has been cranky for the last couple days, so I understand your plight! Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Alex had to work this afternoon/tonight, too. Sorry Will's home sick. :( We had a mommy/daughter date at the mall - ate Ch(i)k-Fil-@ and played in the play area...and mommy got some shopping down when she dozed off (yippee!). Glad you're still having a wonderful Valentine's Day!
