Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!!! I hope you had a wonderful day!

I made Rick a display for when he came home from work since I had to work today from 1 to 9. Whew!  That was a long day!

I left him our wedding pictures, a card, those are the flowers he gave me and on the paper is written the words from the song Broken Road

I set out on a narrow way many years ago

Hoping I would find true love

Along the broken road

But I got lost a time or two

Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

I couldn't see how every sign

Pointed straight to you

 

That every long lost dream

Led me to where you are

Others who broke my heart

They were like Northern stars

Pointing me on my way

Into your loving arms

This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road

That led me straight to you. 

So many people were out buying their special someone presents.

Towards the end of the night it slowed down and mostly single people were coming in.

A few guys came in and bought stuff like toothbrushes and other things like razors and other such things.

I think maybe they were the ones who were too cheap to buy their girlfriend or wives gifts and got kicked out of the house LOL.

Rick and I didn't get to do anything special since I had to work, but we will probably go out for my birthday in two more days.

Thank you to all of you who sent me Valentines wishes.

Heres a poem for all of you my jland friends

 

 

How many ways do I love you 

About one hundred gazillion that's how many

People come and people go

Perfect friends stay for always

You are all my perfect friends

 

Very few know  love that you have shown to me

And I am thankful for each of you

Let's always stay in touch

Even when we move from place to place

No one can take away our computers

Time and time again you have helped me

I hope that I help you too

Nice comments and helpful advice

Emails of laughter

Smiles everyday

 

Devotion of a true kind

And meaning every word typed

You make my world a better place

Barbara

Hope you had some special time with hubby... Even though hubby took the evening off, seems it was more about the kids then us, so still need to have some quiet time with hubby. ;)

I am just going along and reading your wonderful fun journal......I think that you know Jeanette(JloCorriere05)  Her journals are sooooo good.......She sends me the  most fabulous e-mails.  I read about your childhood and saw the pictures. How wonderful to grow up happy.  I had a very good childhood and my parents were so great.  I grew up a country girl and all that was missing was a sister.
give me one of yours!!!!   lol              
                                           Hugs to you    MoodyMyke
