It's been a lovely Valentine's Day; but for tonight, rather than describe my own day, I want to record a little something my dad told me about how he celebrated.
In his basement, he had found a box which contained Valentine's cards that he and my mom had given to each other through the years. As he was looking through it, he discovered one from 1986 that he really liked, so rather than going out and buying a new card for Mom, he gave the 31-year-old card to her again! Isn't that hysterical?!?! :) :) :) I love that for so many reasons! :)

One of his strengths is his willingness to make himself available and meet the needs of others, and he demonstrated that once again during my time of distress yesterday. I was so grateful!
