I’m curled up in the front of the fireplace with the dogs tonight…glass of wine in hand. I’m missing Jason, but the day was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. Maybe because I went back to work today and I was so busy catching up after being sick for a week I didn’t have much time to be sad. I also really felt the love today at work with everyone happy to see me back.
Yesterday our kids surprised me by getting me flowers and chocolate-covered strawberries. I did have a brief moment when I opened the door for the flower delivery when my first thought was “oh! Jason got me flowers!”…before I remembered how impossible that was. I feel proud that our kids watched and learned from how we celebrated Valentine’s Day and realized how sad I would be. Hopefully that carries over to how they treat their own significant others…when they get them. Everyone loves to feel a little special!
