Reflections on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day.
It's a day that those who are alone dread.
I was no exception.
I decided to pretend it was just any old day.

But it was not to be...

You see, son #1 showed up at my school with roses and candy for me.
The joy of being remembered.
The blessing of being loved.

Then son #2, who was vacationing with his girlfriend in New York, sent a three word text...
"So, I'm engaged."
Double oh.

This is the woman I prayed for to be my son's life mate.
She completes him in every way.
She is kind, positive, forward thinking and caring.
I will be honored to be her mother-in-love.

A day I dreaded turned out to be a day full of blessings.
My heart is full.
