Happy Valentine's Day, Dad!

Good is a day for reflection. Valentine's Day always revolved around boyfriends or secret admirers or the possibility of such romantic love. Not today. Today Valentine's Day is a day of to remember. My Dad. Last year on Valentine's Day, he called me (as he always did). Ever since I was a little girl, I was his valentine. He'd send me goofy cards when I was away at college, or flowers sometimes. He always remembered. Today, I remember him. Today was the last day that I spoke with him before he died. I can't believe it's been a year. I've already survived Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, and my sister's wedding without him. I'll get through this, too. But, I want to make sure and stop today and say:

"Happy Valentine's Day, Dad! I love you this much!"

Hi Michelle,
Sorry to hear about your dad. He will always be in your heart. And remember, love is the only thing we take with us when we go...
