love is EVERYWHERE!!

Yesterday was Valentine’s day and motorcycle man took the day off work because we had major plumbing troubles.  In the midst of the plumbing troubles I like to snap pictures just to document life and things like that.  Well today I uploaded some images and I had not even seen the heart in this image below until I uploaded it.  I nearly flipped out.  I get a little dramatic.  If you know me, well I may scare you from time to time with my responses to things, I just get a little bit excited and I may just act as if the sky just fell or something but really it’s just a heart!  DO YOU SEE IT! We went to lunch with some good old friends last Sunday after church.  I found a heart in my salad and the discussion arose.  Sal said it best when he said and I quote “it’s like calling cards from God”  I again got very excited because it’s exactly my thought on the matter!

IMG_1684Abbie even found dirt claud hearts in our plumbing fiasco.  I have to agree!

  1. Oh man, I’m all teary eyed now! What a great story! And THANK YOU for loving Valentine’s Day and the sentiment behind it – I’m right there with you! 🙂 Every year growing up my dad got me a heart of chocolates and a card. And when I had Mr. T, I continued that tradition, and he loves waking up to a heart shaped box of chocolates and a card, and he’ll come out and open the card in front of me. Awe. 🙂 This year, my dad surprised me by stopping by on Friday night just to give me a heart shaped box of chocolates! I told him that I’ve often said the worst day in my life was when I realized I was a grown up and wouldn’t get chocolates anymore. He just giggled at me and took off to finish his errands!
