Ode to my sweet Valentines

Hello friends, it's been quite a long time since I've updated (I had good excuses though!)

So much has happened in the last 8 wks. I won't bore you with the details. I want to say thank you to Jesus for saving my life. To all who prayed, watched Luke, made meals, sent cards, visited the hospital I will be eternally grateful for your kindness.

To my sweet husband Jason, I know there were times when you were stretched way beyond the breaking point balancing everything with work, home, Luke, childcare, etc. I just want you to know how proud I am of you. You exceeded my expectations in every way.

God taught me many things while I was "incarcerated" at Baylor. One of the most important things He taught me was how blessed I am to be married to such a Godly man. You will never know how deep my love for you flows. I am thankful for every second I can spend with you. I never tire of being with you and doing things for you. You truly complete me. Hopefully next Valentine's day will be much better than this latest one with me on one couch recouping and you with the flu on the other couch. Poor Luke, there's only so many times you can watch Toy Story 2 in one day.

Dearest Luke, my other sweet little valentine. You are an amazing little boy. I never could have imagined that I could love someone as much as I love you. You are really growing up. You talk in complete sentences can do small tasks like put on your socks, clean up your room, throw trash away, run the vcr, put dirty clothes in the hamper and fetch mommy diapers and wipees. God has blessed you with a smart little mind. I know that He has something very special planned for your life. I know it was hard being away from mommy for 8 weeks. Just know that I missed you dearly and would cry everytime you and Daddy would leave from visiting. You and Daddy are my soul, my everything.

I love you both from the deepest depths of my heart.

Heather aka...Mommy

P.S. This picture was taken Sun. of Jason and I before we went to our church Valentine's Banquet. For those who haven't seen me I've changed quite alot. I'm down 55 lbs. now. Yippee!

Oh Heather... I am so happy to read your writing and know that you must be feeling better if you are blogging again.

God has blessed you with a wonderfully loving and faithful husband who would stop at nothing to make sure everything was taken care of so all you had to do was concentrate on getting well. You are truly blessed with great friends who prayed for you faithfully, rejoiced with you when you felt good and grieved when you didn't. God is so good!

Welcome back...You look better than ever, girl!
