I realized that I laid down last night and didn't enter my post, I just saved it in a draft. Man was I ever tired. Our date was about as exciting as my day, I felt sorry for Jeff...I was just wiped out. Isn't it funny when you feel good it makes the day go by so fast and I feel so much happier, than days like yesterday...well they are long and frustrating.
I got up this morning with a bit more energy, I was able to go to the store and get some groceries...one of my least favorite things to do, but I just wanted to not ask Jeff to do that on Valentine's Day. I have had more exciting Valentine's Days before, but I was just grateful to be surrounded by those I love. Amy, John and Angie came and spent most of the day and then we watched Angie for them while they went to dinner. I usually try to decorate the table and make a special dinner. Well, I had the special dinner because a dear friend made it for us but I didn't even set the table, wow...I am really slacking lately. (I can hear all of you saying " that's ok Lynn, just take it easy!")
I love the Valentine's Day and I am at least grateful that we had the house already decorated for it but I wished that I would have felt better today. Oh well, I know these days won't last forever but ...why do they feel that way? You don't have to answer...I already know.
So tonight I will personally wish all of you a Happy Valentines' Day! I love sending Valentines, I love getting them too! I believe you can never tell someone too often how much you love and appreciate them. So thank you for all the love you give to me and my family. It truly has uplifted me in my life. If nothing else... today at least know that YOU ARE LOVED! It's a great feeling isn't it.
I will close with some of my favorite quotes, a love story and some photos of a real life ANGEL
This is a touching story about a bus that was bumping along a back road in the South. In one seat a wispy old man sat holding a bunch of fresh flowers. Across the aisle was a young girl whose eyes came back again and again to the man's flowers. The time came for the old man to get off. Impulsively he thrust the flowers into the girl's lap."I can see you love the flowers," he explained,"and I think my wife would like for you to have them. I'll tell her I gave them to you." The girl accepted the flowers, then watched the old man get off the bus and walk through the gate of a small cemetery.
