My Valentine

Just a quick shout out to my valentine. I hope you know how much I love you. How much I appreciate you. It is not just for the big things, although loving me, taking care of me and providing for our family is huge! I also appreciate the little things...

...like how when you were out of clean undershirts Monday morning, you didn't say a word. Instead you slipped a silly Dukes of Hazard tee (the boys & I gave you for Christmas) on under your sweater before leaving for work this morning.

...like how you always call on your way home from work and ask if I need you to pick up anything, which I rarely take you up on, because I can't bear to keep you away from your haven or delay you any further from seeing the two boys whose faces light up like firecrackers when Daddy walks in the door.

...like how you always kiss me goodbye in the morning, even though I'm almost always still in the bed mostly asleep (oh, how real school will change that soon enough).

...like how you brag to your friends (or anyone else) that will listen about how I know more about Georgia football than you do (even if it's not exactly true.)

Many (probably too many) moments pass without me saying or expressing how much I love you, but I hope that you know how much you mean to me. Thanks for being my valentine. I love you!
