You know how I feel about Valentine's Day. A day forced upon us, guilting us to prove our love on this one day each and every year. It's all so contrived. I much rather enjoy the little moments of affection that randomly occur on the other 364 days instead! With that said, thank you for taking Munchie Boy out to select that sweet bouquet of flowers. It was such a delight coming home to that after 3 exhausting and grueling days at work.
A Prayer Request
If you are a praying person, I would like to ask you to add my dad to your prayers today. He was admitted to the hospital on Friday because he lost the ability to speak. After many tests the following was found: he had an old stroke and is suffering from atrial fibrillation. A-fib is a heart condition that can cause erratic heart beats, blood clots to be formed, and increased risk of stroke. Apparently a clot landed in the speech center of his brain. He is even finding it difficult to write. He is on medication to control the a-fib, but has yet to regain his speech. You all are the best and I sincerely thank you!
Dad and his daughters
Remember the Travel Channel T-shirt I won over on Mommy Madness's Giveway? If you haven't had a chance to visit Christine I urge you to do so! She's delightful and can be found HERE. Anyway, I was directed to the Travel Channel website and from the choices offered I selected a safe, non flashy style with the Travel Channel logo across the left breast. Want to see what arrived in the mail?
Don't you just love it! It's perfect! It's so me! And look at that...the number on the back reflects my age, too! This shirt was not among the options when I made my boring original selection but I am absolutely thrilled with what fate threw my way! Thanks Christine!
Have you all met Betty over at CUT AND DRY? If not you are missing out. She is a very sweet and dear blog friend and has a beautiful blog herself. I so enjoy her photography and her positive approach to life. Anyway, she bestowed upon me the Beautiful Blogger Award last week and I wanted to publicly thank her.
I haven't passed on any awards of late but thought I would send these out to the following blogs that I find of particular merit:
*WARNING* Contents of some of the blogs may be of adult subject and may be rated PG-13 for language and situations.
Please pay them a visit if you have the time. They are each "beautiful" in their own unique ways.
That's all my musings for this rainy day Monday. Have a great day, everyone!
