Valentines Day is still a day to celebrate love, even when you are Widowed.
I was lucky enough to have the love of two wonderful men, who I may not have had my entire life with, but who got to spend the rest of their lives with me. Two incredible people who died knowing that my love for them would live on, forever.
Today I celebrate them.
I also celebrate the love I have gained through their families.
On the left of the hearth there is a little garden of daffodils that Jason’s parents gave me and on the right is a beautiful bouquet that Tom’s parents gave me. Two sets of people who I treasure, not only for the wonderful men they raised, but for the compassion and love that they have shown me.
Today I am thankful.
Hold your loved ones close every day, tell them you love them as often as you can and love with all of your heart, for even when your heart stops beating, love lives on.
Happy Valentine’s Day 🧡
