Happy Valentine’s Day

14 Feb

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?  For my family, we all exchange cards, a few kisses and spend the evening over a wonderful dinner.  For us, nothing beats quality time together.

I show my love for Beloved and Just Plane Dad every single day that I have them with me on this journey called life.  I don’t ever want either of them to fall asleep without hearing me say I LOVE YOU.

As parents, it’s important enough to us that even when Beloved is away from our home, at a sleepover for example, her Dad and I take the time to send a goodnight text with those three simple words.  She always dutifully responds with her own version of the same meaning and has never once questioned this evening ritual.  Why should she?  It’s perfectly normal for her to have the attention of her parents before they retire for the evening. We all rest easier knowing that should anything unexpectedly  happen while we’re apart, the last words from our lips were of love.

On this St. Valentine’s Day, I’d just like to announce to the World how blessed I am to share my life with a wonderful man and his beautiful daughter.  I am also thrilled to have some amazing friendships and a phenomenal extended family that loves me.

 Share the Love

On this special holiday, I’d also like to share the love for my fellow bloggers.  There are so many talented people out there and I’m excited that I get to learn from the best.  Enjoy some of my favorite Valentine’s Day posts. Stop by and show them some love!
