Cheesy.........But Mine.......

i have this box that i keep cards and certain letters in....and i only get it out a week or two after valentine's day......

every year since i can remember i have always gotten a card and gift for valentine's day whether i had a "significant other" or not....and every year the card would be signed the same way.....

"from the man that will always love you..."

Dad

after he died...a few years ago in november....i was shocked come february to see a package in the mail with his return address information....little gifts that made me smile and on the card it said.....

"from the men that will always love you...."

Dad and Grandpa

we lost my grandfather early this year....and last week i decided to carry on this tradition with my step-sister and brother....so i shopped and found just the right cards and gifts for them and sent the packages out for today...
and on the card it said...

"from the people who will always love you..."

Dad, Grandpa and Me...

whether you have a love this valentine's day or not...know that you always have the power to make someone's day....

happy valentine's day....

Me...

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day Amish.

Cheesey?

Not at all.

Simply Wonderful and Heartfelt.

Thanks for this, I'm going to use it right away for some of my family. They know how I feel about them, but it's always better to see it confirmed in writing.

I never really put this into perspective for myself and figured that maybe my dad didn't "get" valentines day.

Turns out it's been me who hasn't "got it".

Every year my dad still gives me one of those See's Candy's heart shaped boxes of chocolates.

(Which usually takes me all of two sessions to finish off.)
