"Being a family means you are a part of something wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life. No matter what!"
Today I wasn't going to post a post simply because I don't have significant other and today is just another day. I have been having some problems with school the past couple of days and I feeling a little blue. But today when I was coming home from town I stopped to get the mail I found a package addressed to my sister and I from our Great Aunt Annabelle. Inside the package was a note and 2 heart shaped pot holders. The note said that she was going through her Valentine's Decorations and she came across these 2 pot holders that my Grandma Carolyn had made for her many years ago. She thought that she should pass them along to my sister and I.
As I was sitting in my car reading her note and looking at these adorable pot holders I about cried. Just when I thought I was at a really low point in my week and that I had no reason to celebrate Valentine's Day did I realized that I have so much to celebrate and to be happy about! I have so many people in my life that love me, support me, and want the best for me. I am beyond blessed.

I was very lucky as a child because I was able to have such a good relationship with my extended family including great aunts and uncles, and a bazillion second, third, fourth...etc, cousins. One example would be my Aunt Annabelle and Uncle John. They've been very important to me growing up. They always supported me when I was doing anything. I remember sitting around talking with my Uncle John at my grandmas house and at family reunions and finding out how much we had in common. He was a farm boy who was in FFA and later in life he really enjoyed golfing and those were two things we had greatly in common. My Uncle John passed away a year ago Tuesday but he will always be a big part of my life through the lessons he taught me and the many memories.

So go out today even if you don't have a significant other and celebrate and really embrace the people in your life who love you. Weather that be friends, coworkers, teachers, or your family because you don't know how much time you have left with them and you don't want to waste a second!! Write them a letter, send them a card, call them or go over and give them a big hug and let them know that you care!
Happy Valentine's Day!!
