It is Not What You Buy, But What is in Your Heart that Matters for Valentines
Don't get me wrong, I love flowers 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.
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.
