      I wanted to tell everyone Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope that each of you have someone in your life that is special and you have the oppurtunity to get a bit of extra love this weekend.

      I dont plan to really celebrate…I do plan to be close to those I love the most and make sure Connor has a great day filled with love.

      I sit here at work, it’s 10am and the snow is coming down like no other. We are in a Winter storm warning with thundersnow expected. All of the schools closed in the city and outlying areas.

      I watch out the window and remember so clearly what I was doing a year ago today. And one year ago tomorrow, Valentine’s Day.
      So many of you will remember that my Mom passed on that day.

      I miss her more than I can tell you.

      I have to admit, a small grin can be seen on my face beneath all of the tears.
      I know my Mom no longer suffers and I know that if there was a day for her to leave, Valentines Day couldnt have been a more perfect day. I know she is here with me and I know she is proud. I know that. And b/c of that, I can force the grin beneath the tears.

      I thank you all for your love and support that helped me thru this last year…some of the toughest roads I’ve endured …

      I’m going to leave work early…I think I’ll go now in fact and get home before it gets any worse out there.

      Happy Valentines day my friends…

      Hi Stacey,
      How well I can relate to your feelings because my mom died a year ago January 29th. I miss her and love her so very very much and I still grieve because when anything happened to me my mom was always there. IN MEMORY OF OUR MOMS.

      Smiles and hugs for all of you today and for future days!
      Deal with those and that will soon make for better ‘past’ days.
