A Valentine

Doug continues to recover, and I to care for him.  So, I’ve missed a post or two.  This isn’t much, but a small offering in thanks for all the love and prayers you have sent us.

If Only

Hearts and Candy

If only I could send the world a valentine,

Full of love for the water and the sun,

Or time spent outdoors having fun,

And memories of times of grace,

When I filled my soul at a special place,

Enjoyed a sunset, climbed a tree,

Relished sunrise, watched a bee.

If only you could send one, too,

We’d care for it, me and you.

And perhaps, together, one day we will,

Hug the world, make it greener still.

We’ll plant a garden, rescue a homeless man,

Teach a child, and save our land.

If only I could send the world a valentine,

And you would help me to,

We’d never have to say, “If only…”

Not a traditional hearts and flower message, and certainly not my best writing, but I love you all nonetheless. You are blessings to Doug and to me. Happy Valentine’s Day.
