Creativity Wins This Valentine’s Day

As most of you know, Tom (Papa) and I (Nana) are in Arkansas helping our daughter and son-in-love with their first baby who was born at 24 weeks and 5 days in October. They came home after being 2 hours away in Tulsa, OK, for 115 days. It is a privilege to be able to help them.

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. I haven’t been out of the house since Tuesday. And that was to take Elias to his doctor appointment. I told Tom not to buy me a card this year since I didn’t have a chance to buy him one.

Well, what I didn’t know is that Tom had already bought me a card. So what did he do? He went to the store and picked out a card he thought I’d pick for him. He nailed it! And not only that, but he signed it as I would have if I had bought it.

The best gift? He made me laugh loud and hard. It was such a thoughtful and well timed gift.

Sometimes circumstances don’t lend themselves to romance, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be thoughtful and kind to each other.

I am grateful for my husband. We have walked together through some difficult times these past few years, but two things are constant—his love for me and God’s faithfulness to us.

Happy Valentine’s Day. Make it memorable and creative. ❤️
