Happy Valentine’s Day!!
This year my valentine’s are my family!
Darrick, Emma & Douglass…and Darrick (even though he isnt with us physically)!
All week I have been writing this post for Valentine’s Day…but nothing felt right! Today I was in the car with my children, my niece and nephew and I couldn’t help but feel the love among us in the car. I havent had all the kids with me by myself in a long time, so today it felt good to chill out with them! While we were riding this post came to me and I have been trying to find the right time to write it and not take away from time with my husband tonight after the kids are sleep.
When I think of Valentine’s Day I think of a chance to show love. We show love daily but on Valentine’s Day you show some extra love. And thats fine by me…life is so short its good to give a little more love on February 14!

Earlier this week my husband and I were bumping heads, we are over it now but the week started off a little rough. We took the time the other night just to talk and reconnect with each other and its been all good (and not even in a sexual type of way) often times when you are stressed from life, and you are married you take the stress out on each other…when really the problem is stress from the outside! Along with us bumping heads, Emma was waking up in the middle of the night crying and wanting to get in the bed with us, and Douglass is teething (ALREADY) so he is up crying because his gums are bothering him. So needless to say we have been going through it earlier this week.
But now the work week has ended for my husband, he seems very relaxed (they are working on a big project…so his work environment is currently stressed), the kids are back to being their normal selves. Emma is sleeping in her bed, and Douglass is sleeping more at night. We were able to get a restful nights sleep the past two nights.
So back to them being my Valentines…
With all of that going on, I wouldn’t trade any of it! I love my family, I love that God brought Darrick and I together and we created these little munchkins! Yes, I am up in the middle of the night, I have one that is crying for Daddy (because she is the ultimate Daddy’s girl) and one crying for me because well I guess he’s a Mama’s boy. And one that I miss deeply, but I find peace in knowing he is in my heart and watching over all of us. Days are still stressful from time to time but its nothing we cant handle…together! When my load gets heavy Darrick carries me, and when his load gets heavy I carry him! And even when the load is too much for both of us…we see the smiles of our children and realize that no matter whats going on if we have each other we will make it!
So while I know that usually Valentine’s Day is about the love of your significant other…this year I am choosing my little family God has blessed me with as my Valentines!
P.S. Don’t think this holiday is getting away from me without showing Mr. Godbott how special he is (and he has that fresh haircut going on…ohhh weeee that’s one FINE MAN, I love me some Mr. Godbott)…I have a whole lot of tricks up my sleeve for him! 😉 Gotta keep him happy first!!!
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
