Love Thought #2

I took these pictures four years ago on Valentines day morning. I remember this like it was yesterday! I had just fed and bathed the twins and they were getting ready for a nap. It was a cold yucky day and I remember that I was sad that I hadn't gotten around to getting Clay a Valentines present and I REALLY didn't want to leave the house (bundle up the babies, haul them and the gynormous diaper bag around thanks) to get him one. I decided to make him a special card with a bunch of pictures of his two new, adorable valentines and I! Later that day he came home and put my Valentine roses in a vase and we sat down after putting the babies down to a yummy P.F. Changs take-out dinner. I gave him his card and apologized that I didn't get him anything else. Of course he didn't care one bit! He said that the card and his family was all he could ever want! I'm sure he bought me some kind of nice gift, but I don't even remember what it was. I just remember sitting across from him eating my lettuce wraps and honey shrimp loving the much needed quiet time, alone, with my sweet Valentine. This was a Valentines day that I will never forget! I've always been able to find such joy in my little family and look forward to the many more memories we will make together!

When the voices of Children are heard on the green
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast
And everything else is still.

~William Blake, "Nurse's Song"

Clay, Jack, Grace, Maxwell.... I don't need anything else either. I love you!
