Thank You Hannah!! Gamma and Geeps had such fun with you at your school!! We LOVE you!!!!
Today I got a special delivery, from my special Valentine!
Now......it seems that just about eveyone who blogs has a lovely little Valentine How We Met story, or some other fun little thing going on for Valentine's Day. But I discovered that my niece Katie (actually she is my cousin, but she calls me Aunt Kristy, and I refer to her as my niece because she is only a couple years older than my oldest daughter Gennifer, and she is very close to my Mom, who she always calls Aunt Diane. There have I explained it sufficiently? ) has posted a very ummmm shall we say unique Valentine post today about my MOTHER!!!!!! First, before you go to Katie's blog and read this post, know that my mother and father were married just shy of 50 years before my Dad passed away 6 years ago. He was the love her life, and she was his. My Dad placed my Mom above all others, and always treated her like a Queen. Their love was magic. They wed as teenagers, against all odds, and raised 4 kids and helped raise my mother's little brother, Katie's Dad, Johnny. Growing up, our house was THE place to be. We had a wonderful family life, and I grew up knowing that I wanted the same for myself when I married. At any rate, my Dad passed away after a very brief illness with a form of lung cancer called mesothelioma. To anyone who knew him, he was something special. To me and my brothers, he was the finest man alive! To my Mom, he was the world. Losing him has been incredibly difficult for all us, but especially my Mom. So, when you go see Katie's fun post about my Mom, know that there is a lot of love in it, and a little jest too, just for fun. Katie loves my Mom. She wants to "hook" her up in the worst way. She would be a great catch, that's for sure. So, in the name of love, what the heck......go check out Katie's Blog.
