Happy Valentine’s Day
Looking forward to going to the boys school for Valentine Parties today and watching them be uncomfortable giving the girls in their class a Valentine, haha!
Looking forward to a date with my hubby Friday night. Doing dinner and a movie with friends. Dragging the guys to see Safe Haven, CANNOT wait to see it.
Have you read this Valentine Story that went viral yesterday on Twitter?! I posted it on Facebook after I was a blubbering mess reading it….
Here’s her letter by Sue Johnston, 68 via Huffington Post:
“My sweet husband, John, and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine’s Day, he’d send me the most beautiful flowers containing a note with five simple words: ‘My love for you grows.’
Four children, 46 bouquets and a lifetime of love were his legacy to me when he passed away two years ago.On my first Valentine’s Day alone, 10 months after I lost him, I was shocked to receive a gorgeous bouquet addressed to me..from John.
Angry and heartbroken, I called the florist to say there had been a mistake. The florist replied, ‘No, ma’am, it’s not a mistake. Before he passed away, your husband prepaid for many years and asked us to guarantee that you’d continue getting bouquets every Valentine’s Day.’
With my heart in my throat, I hung up the phone and read the attached card. It said, ‘My love for you is eternal.'”
How wonderful is this?! I still tear up and I’ve read it a dozen times already. Goodness!
