My Sweet Valentine

Valentine's Day...it's a day that comes with mixed emotions.  First off, annoyance!  Really people?  Cupids, conversation hearts, overpriced roses and Kenny G love songs?  A day dedicated to those who are in love and making fun of those of us without a love to call our own.  How rude!!

Second emotion...hope! (You weren't expecting that after my last little tirade...were ya?) I hope that the people around me, know that I love them.  I hope that my one true love finds me, before I'm too old to enjoy him...and would he mind just showing up at my door?  I hope that Daniel finds a love in this life (Later on in life preferably! After he graduates from college would be nice!) and I hope that, that someone treats him right.  More importantly, I hope that I teach him how to love and respect others.

Mostly, I can't help but be thankful for the little man in my life.  He has been my saving grace and the most amazing gift of all.  I'm so thankful that I get to be his mother, caregiver and supporter!  I'm thankful for all the amazing people in my life who help me do what I do.  Being a mom, full-time employee and full-time student makes me super nutty and in need of constant help.  So to those who are always lending me a hand; Fia, Sione, Lorien, Lua, Allison, Olivia, Melanie, Kristi and Mileah...just to name a few.  Thank you!!!  Thank you for keeping me off the ledge!

And to everyone reading this...

Happy Valentines Day!!!

My sleeping Valentine!


The Best Valentine I have EVER gotten!
"Dear Mommy I love you.
and I made these
cookies for you!
I love you so much
will you be my 
Valentine?
love Daniel."
