Life is for the birds --
and the bees and the flowers and the trees and the moon up above, and a thing called love -- Jewel Akens

My Valentine, for a few years, has been my mother-in-law.

Her son might be deceased, but she is still my mother-in-law, and she is alive. She'll be 93 on March 5. So I took her a card, a small potted flower, and a box of chocolates today, as I have every year she has been at Magnolia House.

Happy Valentine's Day, Girl!

Note: One's love and one's Valentine can be two separate persons.

Lyman and I would just cook something special together. Sometimes. And that man loved his mama.


  1. What a sweet post! Happy Valentine's Day!

    Much love,

  2. I have a hair appointment, at Anruss, this coming Wednesday. Not exactly sure which days I'll be home, yet, but Mom and I would like to come by for a visit. Please let me know (on here or by e-mail) what days you'll have free, so we can get in-touch with you and plan a time to get-together!

  3. Have your mom get in touch. Whatever's convenient for you will be fine with me.
