Lessons for our Children on Valentine's Day and More

My health seems to be decreasing. The last week or so I have not been able to feel my hands and have been in bed most of the time. It makes me really appreciate when I can get up and spend time with my children. I went to my son's school today and helped with his Valentine's party. His face lit up and I thanked God for giving me the strength to be able to go.
I also went out with my little valentine tonight, he took me on a date. He is such a gentleman. He bought me flowers, opened doors and even paid. We are trying to teach him how to treat ladies.

My husband took our daughter out, bought her flowers and the whole nine yards. We want to teach her how she should be treated so she will never settle for less.

It's been almost half a year since Momma left. This grief journey seems to through so many curve balls my way on a daily basis. I face each day not quite sure where it may take me. I can break out in tears at any given moment and be laughing the next. I am starting to feel her with me more and more. I believe that is a gift from God and I'm so very thankful for it.

God has been so good to our family and continues to be. Hubby has not found a job yet but God continues to provide. He has a second interview on Wed. of this week. Please send up a prayer for us.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Saying a prayer for your hubs. It sounds like you are doing well and enjoying life even though the health issues. I have to say that you encourage me and I love your outlook on life. What a freest thing for you and hubs to do for your kids. Precious.

Our God always finds a way to provide! when my mom was battling cancer I had moments where I wanted to break into tears at something even reminding me of her. Stay strong and continue to lean on God for your strength. I stumbled across your blog and thought I would leave an encouraging note...
