Valentine's Day is now upon is.
Last night my husband took "Miss Priss" out for a "date" to a nice Italian Restaurant. They had a very nice time. He wanted to spend "special time" with her and I of course was very encouraging of this.
She growing up fast and will not be with us forever. We have to make these precious memories while we are able to.
My husband had been at a seminar all day and was in driving rain and bad traffic on his way home so he didn't have time to stop and get her flowers. But he asked her if she would "like to stop and get a bouquet of flowers" while they were on their way to the restaurant and she said "No Dad, I'm fine. Besides I have some."
Which was true.....some "young man" whom she is "only friends" with had given her a bouquet of VERY NICE red roses the other night. Hummmm.....interesting. They sit on our kitchen table even now.
I just want to remind the Mom's to not forget the "sons" and the Dad's to not forget the "daughters" not just on Valentines Day.....but always.
This is a good way to "train" them for their relationships in the future and to spend quality time with them. I already mailed a card and a bit of "cash" off to our son in Connecticut....we are missing him.They can move away but they never leave your heart.
My heart is heavy today for the countless Mom's who can't send Valentine's Day cards out to their children. Maybe because their child has left the "earth" or they are possibly disconnected from them in some way.
I'm wishing you all a wonderful day.
