Valentines Day Memory..

I guess for me the best memory I have of Valentines Day, is one that most people would never consider.. I was in the midst of a horrible divorce and I and 2 daughters had NO WHERE to go. Some very dear friends from church offered their home and "booted" one of their children from their own room, to give us a place to stay. That year Valentines Day was quickly approaching and I offered to watch all the kids while they went out. They would have nothing of it. They INSISTED on staying home with me and ALL the kids and having a night in.

Sometimes Real Love has nothing to do with "romance", it can be the very generous gift they gave a friend in need..

I love that! How fulfilling it must have been for them as well to know how secure their own love is.

Beautiful post! It is so very true that sometimes the thoughtfulness and generosity of friends, family and even strangers makes you realize how very lucky we are to have the love of the Lord, for through him we make the world a better place. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment you left on my blog.
Many Blessings,

You are so right! Valentine's Day means so much more than just the love we associate with romance. The ULTIMATE love story is that of our Heavenly Father sending His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for us. It sounds like the couple that took you in did a great job of demonstrating that love!
