This Valentine's Day I didn't get a box of chocolates or flowers. There wasn't a silly stuffed animal in pink of red holding a heart and singing songs or a frou frou card to say, "I love you!". It's not that I have anything against those things....I just happen to be a practical gal and didn't get any of those things for him. Tonight the bank teller asked, "Do you have any Valentine's plans?"
I kindly replied, "No, I'll be at Awana's tonight with 2 of my kids." : )
And as I drove away and headed to the post office to send off our adoption fingerprints to the FBI and his passport renewal I got a big smile and thought of the wonderful Valentine's gift my husband is. Here is a man who is taking this journey of adoption again and this time half way across the world. Here is a man who truly loves God and has taken such wonderful care of me and my children.
Happy Valentines Day, Chris! and thanks for taking the silly picture above with me.
