A dozen roses in the most beautiful colors of red, yellow and peach were delivered this afternoon, along with a card which read "You're still my Valentine." They were a total surprise. I am so blessed to have such a caring husband. I am often brought to tears just remembering all the kind things he has done for me.
This year marked my son's first year with an official girlfriend. He gave her one rose, a box of candy, a little heart pendant in a matchbox and a card. They spent the afternoon at a mega-mall in Portland which is half-way between her home and ours. Oh these long distance relationships can be a trial. I have not met the young lady, only spoken to her on the phone. She sounds so sweet and she just adores my son. How precious young love is.
