Today, while everyone is buying the token red roses, cards, jewelry, and chocolate, I realized how often each day I am told how much my friends and family love me with their actions.
Charles wakes me every morning with a smile and a cup of hot cocoa.
He calls me from a very busy day at work just to see how I am doing. He makes me laugh every day. He is a loving son, brother, nephew, friend, husband, but most importantly a wonderful father. He gives 100% in all that he does. I am so lucky to have found him.
Michael kissing me every chance he gets, Lindsey saying "Thank you kind sir" everytime you give her a apple red, and Tyler saying that the french toast I made for breakfast is the best he EVER had are just examples of their love. I can't imagine my life without them.
My parents and in-laws offering to help with getting the baby's room ready, my sister-in-law making a cozy blankie for the baby, my grandmother visiting from New York to see us, my other grandmother asking us to lunch, Charles' aunt and cousins remembering our children on each birthday and holiday, and my aunt and uncle always listening to my rants are just some of the ways that they show how much they care.
My/our friends calling to dish about a favorite show, asking how we are doing, attending the kids parties, buying from Tyler's fundraisers, telling us a wicked joke, sending a card/letter in the mail at exactly the time when I need it the most, and just being there for me/us........proves how they feel.
I am so blessed to have all of you in my life. Thank you for everything you do every day. I hope I can return the favor to you.
