There was a time in my life when all I wanted for Valentine's Day was to be romanced with flowers, dinner, maybe some jewelry. Tonight we babysat for one of our sons so he and his wife (our precious DIL) could have some romantic time together away from the kids and daily routine.
Paul and I had a blast. The kids were wired, thanks to our filling them up with heart-shaped donuts, pizza and soda. Now, we're so tired that I can't even think about anything else but blissful sleep!
We have a reprieve tomorrow night but then it's Round Two on Saturday night so one of our other sons and his sweet wife to enjoy the romance of the Valentine holiday. And that's ok. It's their time to connect with each other and our time to connect with our grandchildren. Just as back in our younger days, Paul's precious parents watched the kids so we could spend time together.
Miss you, Mom and Dad, and thankful for your legacy of love and Godliness.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the
heaven! ~Ecclesiastes 3:1
