Essential Valentine...

On Valentine’s Day we think about
Those matchless people who
Give extra meaning to our lives
--The very special few.
Without them, skies would turn to gray;
Things wouldn’t be the same;
Life wouldn’t be as colorful;
It would be a duller game.
And when I contemplate that group
--Friends and family who are mine,
I appreciate and treasure you;
You’re essential, Valentine!
By Joanna Fuchs
~Much love to you all, for Valentines!
Rhonda :)

Pretty pictures, Rhonda! You're making me crave junk food! Sounds like you all might get some snow. I'd give alot to be in MB this weekend. Have a great V-day!

Yes, I am seriously in need of something sweet...now! Wish I could reach in and help myself. Thanks for the rich Valentine wishes, Rhonda. A very happy Valentine's Day to you!

This was an incredibly sweet thing to do for those people like me who don't get Valentines! My husband is good but he's really lacking in this department. Have a great Valentine's Day yourself and try to stay warm in the storm I see headed your way!

Rhonda,

Just coming by to see if you're still around. I see you removed your 'last' post. I'm worried a/b you & hope you and everyone in your family is ok. Please leave me a comment (or e-mail me @ tardevil@earthlink.net) to let me know. Thx. LOL! Penny

hello Miz Rhonda,
Just stopped by to say hello and to tell you that I miss you! I pray you and yours are safe and well (((HUGS)))

onlymehere said...

Rhonda: Like your other blogging buddies I too have been thinking of you. I truly hope everything is well. I noticed the last post was removed and I'm sure there's a reason for it. You have my personal email already if you ever want to just stop by and say, "hi!" Miss you.
