We are back home from Missouri, and we had a wonderful time. It’s noon, and I’m sitting here in my pajamas, and robe. I missed my robe, but it was too bulky to pack, and take.
It has surprised me how many people are born on this day. My daughter’s best friend shares her birthday with Valentine’s Day. These two girls are so different, but have a bond that is worth celebrating. For me, Valentine’s Day is just another day on the calendar.
My hope is that I give love everyday. Each day should be a celebration of love.
My daughter announced this morning that she would love to surprise her friend Abby today with a visit for her birthday. My immediate reaction was, “What’s stopping you?”
Her friend lives 1.5 hours away, so they don’t get to see one another much. She made the comment lastnight, that she gets to see Abby, about as often as she sees her boyfriend.
Something about that is just not right, considering she has to fly to see her boyfriend. I had to choke the Mom in me this morning, when my daughter mentioned her hearts desire of surprising Abby with a visit. She didn’t get any school done while we were away, which I knew would be the case. She has plenty of school to do, but it’s not going anywhere without her.
Today is a good reason to push that love envelope a little bit more.
I bought this card for my daughter, and yep, it was the bling that drew me to it. She doesn’t expect anything from me on Valentine’s Day, because we love each other everyday. Her friend will be shocked that she drove all the way out there to help make her birthday special. Her schoolwork will wait one more day, but this moment won’t.
She will eventually graduate, but I hope she never graduates grabbing life’s moments.
