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.
