Usually on Valentine’s day I make red heart pancakes. This year my sister sent me a different idea. So we started the day with a breakfast of eggs topped with bacon twisted and baked into a heart shape. I figured nothing says “love” like heart shaped meat. At church (online) the priest prayed especially for married couples. My parents raised their hands as the priest was looking for the couple who had been married the longest. It’s too bad we weren’t present as they have been married 13 years longer than the couple in church. We exchanged cards and ate truffles. In the afternoon we got on Zoom with the rest of the family. We sent them all humorous valentines and they waited until today to open them. It was pretty funny as my parents chose the perfect card for each one. Later, one of our neighbors stopped by and gave us a bottle of sparkling cherry juice. I poured it in fancy glasses and served it to my parents with a candlelight dinner for the two of them, complete with ice cream dessert. Then we played a game. My mom said it was the best day she has had in a long time. That made me pretty happy.
I Found God today in a very enjoyable Valentine’s Day.
