I have to confess, I have more than one sweetheart in my life. My husband has known this for several years and has been very understanding. He doesn't mind sharing me with them, because they are his sons. There are five of them.
"The happiest moments my heart knows are those in which it is pouring forth its affections to a few esteemed characters."

So for Valentine's Day I received flowers from my husband,
and from my boys.
I felt very blessed.
Purple is my favorite color so naturally I loved the mix of purple and red flowers, and I adored the roses.
On Valentine's Day my husband and I went to the movies and saw, "The Vow" which is a love story. We both liked it! It was about a couple who were very much in love, but were in a car accident and the wife lost her memory. She didn't know who her husband was. She had to fall in love with him all over again.
Isn't that how life really is? We don't just fall in love and that is that. We have to continue to fall in love with our spouse as the years pass by. Love isn't just a one time thing, it is a way of life.
I received a teacup from a dear friend. She invited me over for a wonderful brunch with a Valentine's theme and she served it on her Rose Chintz China. I didn't take my camera!
What was I thinking!!
This is the beautiful teacup she gave me...
"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
It makes me excited for Spring to arrive!
I feel very loved...by my husband, my boys, and my friends!
I hope you are feeling loved also.
Thank you for joining me for tea today!
