I don't have to worry about finding that special someone to share my life with, I found him. I married him. & I had his babies. Consider me LUCKY in LOVE.

He does more than most dads do--he not only has to be Mr. Dad but he has to be Mr. Mom when I am traveling for work. When I am home, he still cooks every meal and it is never out of a box. He keeps the laundry going and folded (I at least put it all away), takes the trash out because he knows how much I hate doing it. He probably loads and unloads the dishwasher WAY more than he should. And as I write this, I too, am wondering what the HECK I do! I tell him how much I appreciate him but not often enough. I'm not sure that would even be possible. Oh how I love this man to pieces.
And then there are the two wonderful gifts this man of mine gave me. Kaden Oliver & Logan Beckett-our everything. And if you wanna know what LOVE is, all you need is just a few minutes with these two and you will fall HEAD over HILLS in love-with both of them.
So yes, there is a lot of LOVE to be shared on this Valentine's Day but lucky for me, that love won't just be shown tomorrow, it will be there 365 days a year.
Don't get me wrong, I love being able to buy a few extra things for the boys, make their friends' cute little valentines, dress them up in cute little outfits and take their pictures. But, I don't need a day to remind me just how blessed I am when it comes to the men I have in my life and the love they show me each and every day. All I need is them.
Happy Valentine's Day. Wishing you lots of LOVE--not only today but ALL year long.
