Sweet Valentine's

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I hope you are feeling loved.
Brent gave me a stuffed bear, feather rose, and red blanket and nice card for Valentine's day.  It was sitting on my desk when I got home from my meeting last night.  Sweetie!  I noticed that he chose the exact same bear he got for me last year!  I looked at this pic from last year and it seems like a lifetime ago.

Valentine's 2011

My Eagle Son (love saying that) surprised me today as well with a big bear and a bouquet of flowers.  How sweet was that?  I feel very blessed with the men in my life.  Sending my love to you as well... XOXO ~Margene

Great pics! You look great! Iknow this sounds silly but I feel like I have a nice frienly connection with you. I am going through a little bit of a tough/frustrating time and I was hoping you could pray for me if you would. Thanks so much Margene.

Wow, you look fantastic! Did he forget that he bought you that same bear last year or was that on purpose ;)

Happy V-Day (belated)

Weas... He did forget. It was my daughter that brought it to our attention that it was the same bear. He just picked out that same style because he thought I'd like it. Too funny (and cute)!
