I ♥...

With Valentine's Day on its way, I thought I would get a head start on doing something for the big V(and I don't mean disease).
When we were dating, my husband and I used to go all out for the day of days.  It was nice, but I was reading a book about famous love letters and I began to look at this day the way
President Reagan did with this wife...
 "Feb.14 may be the date they observe and call Valentine's Day, 
but that is for people of only ordinary luck. 
I happen to have a Valentine's life, which started on March 4, 1952,
and will continue as long as I have you."
Gosh, that's just mushy. 
But I love it, and decided that was my way of looking at Valentines Day. 
Why have one day to go all out for your spouse or love one.
  Shouldn't that be practiced everyday of our lives?
So I have listed some of the easiest ways to show someone I love you...
disclaimer: I'm going to assume my readers are woman
1.Flirt
2.Hug
3.Wink
4.Pinch their toosh
(OK, is that me?well i like it!)
5.Dance, even if you don't know how, a little mode music and swaying can go a long way
6.Write notes in the bathroom mirror(I love doing this!)
7.Lay down under the stars(no fire, no light, trust me...you'll make sparks on your own!)
8.Stare at your spouse from across the room at a public place...when you make eye contact, give him a look only he knows.
9.Appreciate him...TELL him you appreciate him.
10.Say it...I. Love.You.


Alright, so enough of the mush...Here is fun questionnaire about the loves of my life...

If I weren't a mom, I'd to be...

When I want to blow off steam, I to...
WORKOUT.  I love working out.  Its such a boost and the benefits aren't bad either!
The trait I most in myself is...
Practicality.  Translation: I like to keep it loose, let things roll off, not letting life or people get to me(to much)...
The cause I the most...
Right now, my heart is aching for Haiti and for countries like Haiti, so I support our church who frequently goes there, and I support our missionaries who also have followed the calling to serve and minister.
After I get great news, I calling...
My husband first, then my mom, then his mom, then my sisters..in that order!
Even thought some might consider them flaws, I've learned to ...
