Happy Valentine's Day!!!

When I think of Valentine's Day I think of my sweet family and how much I love them all!!! This is a picture that was taken when my oldest daughter, Lauren, got married. (May 5, 2007) From left to right is: Me, my precious son-in-law Thomas, my beautiful daughter Lauren, my sweet husband Tom and my other beautiful daughter Adelaide!

Lauren's wedding was one of the happiest days of my life! This was the day that she had dreamed about since she was a little girl and it was a wonderful day. Lauren was a gorgeous bride!

I feel so blessed to have such a lovely family. My girls are so special to me and I love the time we spend with each other! My husband and I met when we were 15 years old and we have been married for almost 34 years! We were high school sweethearts! We have shared lots of great times together as a family and we certainly look forward to many wonderful times ahead.

Although my family is VERY important to me, my ultimate Valentine is Jesus Christ. Without Jesus in my life, I would not be the person that I am today.

I John 4:7 -12....God showed how much he LOVED us by sending His only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. This is real LOVE....

Please take the time today to show those around you how much you love them. A kiss, a hug, a special card, breakfast in bed, a box of chocolates, holding hands, watching a movie together, an afternoon walk in the park, etc. You get the idea.... Just spend the day doing whatever makes you happy, with the special people who make you happy!
