Sweethearts Day/ Weekend

(Virgina is(was) for Lovers)

It is the midnight hour, another day has managed to pass. Today I was bombarded with hearts and flowers at W.M. It almost made me sick to my stomach. It may be a hallmark holiday and we can tell ourselves its just another day. Yet it is another holiday and memories to endure. My son tried to make it special for me going off to buy me my favorite chocolates, He had roses and said dad would have bought them for you...

Truth is, dad would have bought the last bunch of flowers almost falling off the stem because he waited till the last moment to buy them. But still it was him trying to tell me that day and everyday how much that he loved me. It is the consideration, the special way that he treated me, the love in his eyes that I miss.

I know that all of you here are missing the ones that you love this Valentines Weekend especially. Whether we survived Christmas, New Years, Birthdays or anniversaries thus far, it is still rough.

So here is a little wish that you manage through this day with a sweet thought of your sweetheart and can keep the pain at bay one more day...

Gosh! What a wonderful thoughtful son to have done that for you. Praise God he wanted to keep your husband's spirit alive like that. I hope you told him how special that was.

Sweethearts day/weekend
by: M Mack

I know you are feeling let down and alone. We wonder what's the plan for us? Do we live in a memory and for how long? One day, we will see everything we need to know and why we've been left as the 1st survivor. Valentines day is leaving me feel the same.. Bittersweet memories of what was and what I don't have anymore. I have the last valentines day card he gave me in my hands as I type this note. I remember the exact moment he gave it to me like yesterday. I've read it over and over again and wish I could have that moment right now. We need to hold our memories dear to our hearts because that is all we have. Keep your memory of him alive and know he is here in spirit. We were loved and fortunate to have the time we did with our sweethearts. Walk with your head up through all the red hearts, bouquets of flowers and remember, these were yours once, and now someone else will receive the memory of this day as we did. The roller roller coaster ride continues and we are holding on for the next stop. My best to us all and prayers for survival strength.
