It is Not What You Buy, But What is in Your Heart that Matters for Valentines

 

Don't get me wrong, I love flowersSimple Valentine Wish from Alaska Dream Makers and being spoiled. I also have recently seen my husbands face of nearly 15 years (this March) tear up as he explained that he almost lost me.

You see, I had an accident while snorkeling and nearly lost my life. My husband a good friend were there to realize that I was in some kind of seizure (while out in the ocean-50 yards from shore), and they were able to float me to shore, put me on my side and get the ambulance running to help.

Most of the time when I talk about it, I joke about it because I do not want to think of what could have happened. I remember talking to the paramedic in the ambulance when I finally came to and him telling me that I could have had a reaction to something or possibly a stroke.

My response to his 'stroke' comment was "YEAH, back stroke or breast stroke" that is when they figured I was alright for now I guess.

So, for me (at least until we hopefully find out from the neurology appointment this Wednesday) I am ok with not getting dozens of roses or a box of chocolates that I really do not need.

I have my sweetheart and I am very lucky to even have this Valentines Day with him, my awesome family and friends. 

 

 

XOXO

This picture was taken in our kitchen and the merging eggs with the heart happened naturally (no cookie cutters or props involved). I thought it was a really neat picture and perfect for this topic.

Thank You Wanda! We still have the doctors to parade through to see why it happened but at least we get that chance. Have a wonderful day.

Yet another reminder to declare your love daily and not just 1 day a year!  I think the heart was a message from your angels!!  They were there when you were in the ocean and just wanted to let you know they are still with you!  

Adding a prayer!

Thank you Mortgage Mama! I have had some overtime angels in my life already (I have survived a head on crash when I was 18 with a hairline scull fracture, lost use of my right arm for a while and a seat belt cut from clavicle to cheekbone). I AM very fortunate! :)

Thank you Karen, really recent! Neurology appointment tomorrow so we will most likely not know anything yet. It will be one of those visits where they figure out paperwork, stare are me and then order some tests. Ha!

Are you still on the road? Your pictures were STUNNING! If you are drive careful and lots more pictures. Between you and Roy Kelley with pictures lately it has been really fun just being absorbed into the photos and scenery. Of course it is not hard when it is 13 degrees to wish yourself into a photo of warmth, sunshine and flowers.

Hi Margaret, I have BOTH parents to thank for the wicked sense of humor. I didn't have much of a chance on that one. I have 4 siblings also so it is really fun when we all get together. I guess it is nice to know that I am not a mean bugger when the chips are down though. Takes some of the pressure of the situation for all involved. Thank you for your comments, we appreciate it!

Thank you! I thought the picture was just cool. Cool enough to hunt down the camera and risk burnt eggs for! It was a really nice day and I was happy just to have another Valentines Day to share it with him.
