As I sit here watching the sun set and outline the winter trees and waiting for Dom’s Uncle to come and celebrate Valentine’s Day with us, I realize I no longer need the grand gesture on Valentine’s Day or in life.
The day started with breakfast with my funny valentines, my grandchildren. Pancakes, bacon, and sausage were the requested menu. The bacon caused them to break out into a bacon boogey to celebrate bacon in all its delicious baconess. I joined in to the celebration and don’t remember many times dancing with so much happy abandon.
A little while later their daddy came to collect them and brought me roses. A completely unexpected present. The very best presents are the ones not hoped for or anticipated especially on a Hallmark Holiday.
And then this very sweet day dedicated to love ended with me having dinner with not one handsome man but three.
From left to right that is Dom’s brother, Vince, their Uncle Valentino and my husband Dom.
I end writing this post with the same feeling of gratitude that I started it earlier, that I have arrived at a place of appreciating the grandness in my life.
Hope your Valentine’s Day was filled with grand love,
