Happy Valentine's Day!

No photos to share today. I know, this blog is getting so dull! Gotta work on that soon. So glad to have another Valentine's Day to share with my husband. Especially after his recent heart bypass surgery. We didn't even know he was 'sick' so the bypass caught us both totally off guard. I am so grateful for the way things worked out and we are both blessed to have him on the road to recovery. I thank God every single day for the gift of each day we're given to share with those we love. That's what Valentine's Day means to me and I try to live it every day.

We didn't get any of the snow that some in MS got this past Friday. Suits me fine. I don't like the icy aftermath of that snow. Yes, it's gorgeous at first and you can get some really cool pictures. Like Elizabeth at Last Door Down the Hall. She has some beautiful shots of snow in North Carolina. Go check them out. She's a fantastic photographer as well as a gifted mixed-media artist. Great person too.

Nelson and I went to visit the grandkids in Cleveland yesterday and we had a great time. Sam is growing like a weed and so funny. He adores his sister, Sara, and they get along so well. At least while we were there. I guess Sam's still too small for him to get on Sara's nerves too badly yet. That day will come though, no doubt about that. Nicole, their Mom, is such a great mother. I am so proud and filled with love for all our children, whether they're technically my step-children or the ones I carried in my own body. That's another thing I'm thankful for this Valentine's Day.  Nelson and I have shared our children, and now their children without reservation. There's no greater gift to give your life partner than to share ALL of your loves and passions.

Now that Nelson's on the road to recovery it seems that I've come down with a cold/flu or something that's got me sneezing, coughing and generally feeling crappy. It started Saturday morning as soon as I got out of bed. Before I even got my houseshoes on I was sneezing. Those multiple sneezes that come out of nowhere. The ones that have our skittish dog running for cover. Then I heard Nelson doing the same thing. Oh No! Not him too.  I cannot imagine how it feels to sneeze those violent sneezes when your breastbone was cut apart and literally wired back together less than 3 weeks ago. He says it doesn't hurt. It hurts me just to think about it. Anyways, he and I both are still sneezing but now I've started coughing as well. Seems I catch every blooming bug that goes around lately.

I am blogging this at the optimum stretch of the Day Quil tablets working. I thought that'd be a good time to update this blog and now I'm off to just read my list of blogs I follow. I hope all of you have a great week and don't catch any of the stomach virus or flu bugs floating around. Tell your Valentines you love them and God Bless You!

Such wonderful news about Nelson - the best Valentine's Day present ever, huh?

You're probably coming down with flu as a reaction to all the stress - just go with the flow, and be kind to yourself and baby yourself a bit.

Wishing you both all the best, lots of love, Susie xoxo

Thanks to all of you; I do feel much better at the moment. Am about to take a dose of Nyquil and head to bed. I really don't need or want to miss any work. Got loads of work to do; moving old files out so new files can be started. Thanks again for the good wishes!
