Even though my Valentine is on the other side of the world, I am feeling the love today in lots of ways.
My Mom is in town, channeling Betsy Ross, hemming curtains and making our apartment homier.
My sweet dog Hank is here, wagging and whining with delight when I get home from a long day of work.
My email inbox is filled with sweet messages from Dean, sent all the way from Rwanda.
My father has mastered the art of texting, and sent me a sweet message this morning.
And all day long, our little bundle of joy has been kicking and wiggling, reminding me that he's in there, telling me he loves me.
It bears repeating. I'm so lucky.
Happy Valentine's Day.
