Will You Be My Valentine?

Here is a picture of my valentine. He loves me more than I ever been loved before. He loves things about me that I find hard to love about myself.

A couple of months ago I was in the middle of evening mayhem, you know it hits most of us moms around 4:45 right on the edge of dinnertime. The kids are hungry and usually a bit cranky, you husbands not quite home yet and you are running around trying to get dinner on the table while at the same time trying to peel a four year old of your leg so you can move and pacify and older child that is annoyed by the younger that is screaming. Whats that you haven't experienced this?:) This is almost nightly around here. Well for a moment this thought entered my brain....If I knew it was going to be like this would I do it all over again. And as quickly as the thought entered in my brain the response of yes and a big smile spread over my face. It is in these crazy moments that I feel like laughing and crying at the same time. My problems are the blessings that some wish that they had. So I try to think f them as blessings as well. About 5 minutes after this my husband walks through the door my children ran to him and clung to his legs and I was free to go on with my business.

I love that I have a husband that walks through the door happy to see his family in the evenings. This past few months has been a great reminder of how blessed I really am to have this love in my life.

I am sure when we got married many thought we were crazy(because we were), young(because we were), and maybe clueless(because we were). But I wouldn't change any part of our past because it is what has formed us and molded us together. I didn't know 8 years ago that this is what marriage would be like, that this is what having a family would be like, and what it would feel like to have a person I can share every stress and fear and joy with. I had know idea how close we would become.

But I do know that I thank God everyday for a second chance to love this man and to have him love me.

So BJ will you be my Valentine for another year???? Will ya?
