Happy Valentine's Day

Mommy's Sweet Little Valentine

Ah, Valentine's Day. You either love it or you hate it. Right? I used to hate it back when I was single year in and year out. Then, it got much better when I could share it with Michael. You would think I'd hate it again, but I don't.

My life is not exactly what I'd like it to be, but to let a Hallmark holiday like Valentine's Day bring me down would be really dumb. I have been incredibly blessed. Look at that beautiful baby. I see her daddy in her in so many ways. From her appearance, to her easy-going nature, to her curiosity, and so on. I'm sure she has some of me in her as well, but it's Michael that I seek to find in her.

Love is all around this Valentine's Day. Michael may not be here to put his arms around me, but I can put my arms around our daughter. And, for now, that is enough.


  1. You are a BEAUTIFUL woman.. .Love you girly... Hugz..

  2. A perfect Valentine.
    How wonderful to see so much of your beloved in Michaela. I always wondered how alike they are but never wanted to ask.

  3. She is so beautiful and does look so much like her Daddy. It makes my heart happy that you enjoy Valentine's Day with your sweet girl...so many would not have the same outlook on things after such a great loss. You are an amazing woman. I admire you and your heart so very much, friend.


  4. Love your sentiments, Joannah. Many hugs to you.
