Valentine's Day

Wishing all of you a very Happy Valentine's Day!

When you live so very far from home on a holiday, no matter how "small" that holiday is -- it's tough sometimes. Even with great conversations over the phone it's still not the same.

And then comes a small knock on our already open trailer door and I see the 5 children who have become so near and dear to my heart -- Mariano and Maria's kids! There they stand with a pretty red package, a long stem red rose poking out from the top -- and their smiles beaming from ear to ear! And then everything is put in perspective!

Monty and I will have our Valentine's Day dinner out this evening and our hearts will be extra blessed just because 5 children came knocking on our door!

"Family may be miles away from us but --- "family" is also right here!

Until next time . . . be a blessing - brighten someones day! Susan and Monty
