" Be mine today and forever."
Well, today is the day when Americans spend way too much in the name of love. As I write this, it is difficult to compress all of the thoughts about love in my life and turn it into a zipped size paragraph about all things good. Looking at the two photos, it is easy to see where the good in my life comes from. Every year I try to picture the kids in a way that shows their true colors. In this year’s photo, I like how Kate’s smile shows confidence and knowing, two traits she will need desperately as she grows into adolescence. Her beauty comes from within but has become apparent, both inside and out. For those that know Peter, they may realize that there is no better photo that could define him than this one. On any given day, Peter spends most of his time with both of his feet off the ground. He is consistently high on life, I think because he feels loved. Peter loves to move and does so with ease, hence the smile on his face. The three of us feel this contentment because of the man that makes it his great purpose to help us feel this love. Most think of him as quiet, mostly focused on his sport. In reality, while he does love to burn calories, he always finds time to make me feel important and his kids feel like they have someone who has their back. Truth be told, our cat really doesn’t like anyone very much, but he loves my husband. Now that’s saying something. Rather than buying some silly gift this Valentine’s day, pull out the red construction paper, a couple of doilies and tell someone how you really feel. This little tangible sentiment will be just another way to help someone realize what one probably already knows. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone.
