valentine's day is always full of love
On Valentine's Day 2009, I was sitting at home waiting patiently for my husband to arrive back from his business trip. As my husband came in the door I could not contain my excitement for many reasons... I knew he would be hungry, tired, and would probably want to take a hot shower but I asked him to come and join me on the couch instead. I wanted to give him his Valentine's Day gift. He asked me if we could hold off until later but I just said no, no, no open it now. As he opened some chocolates and few smaller gifts I could see him pondering why these gifts were so important to open right this second. As I gave him one last small bag, he reached inside and pulled out a pair of small booties. A big smile washed over his face as he asked me "does this mean what I think it means?" I said, "It sure does - you are going to be a daddy! That Valentine's Day, we were on cloud nine as we celebrated the hope of bringing a new life into this world.
