Valentine's Day - All Year 'Round

Today is Valentine's Day, and I know that there are a lot of people who spent the last week or so scurrying around trying to find gifts that say I love you. I am blessed with a husband who - through his words and actions - shows love all year. Sure, we've had some fun (and even pricey) Valentine's Days in years past. But those days didn't make me love him more.

I think the past few weeks of my husband doing everything he could to speed my post-op recovery have really spotlighted his ongoing desire to serve his family. He's done laundry, run errands, and been encouraging when I got discouraged. He's so faithful with showing love every day in the little things.

And trust me... Those little things really add up!

This year, we decided together that we were going to keep Valentine's Day low-key. We just had Emma's birthday party last night (more on that later), and we knew that we'd be worn out by today! We started the day with heart-shaped pancakes... which got a "Wow!" and big eyes from Emma. We headed to church and came back for heart-shaped sandwiches for lunch. We had a couple of little gifts for Emma, but for the most part we're just enjoying each other's company today.

I am blessed to have the love of Valentine's Day all year 'round.
