So It's Valentines Day!

Pretty appropriate, I think. This year it's different. This year I feel kinda "glowy"....all mellow and golden.

I think it's because of these past few days. I'm all relaxed and happy. I've laughed more over this weekend than I have in the past year. I've smile more than ever in my life.

To be honest I've started a post about my thoughts, feelings, impressions of the Bad Example Family Reunion about 7 times. But it doesn't even begin to cover it - I can't begin to do it justice. But oh the "after effects"....those I pray stay around long after everything settles back into it's normal pattern.

I got a couple of Valentines! Bou gave me a big heart shaped box of chocolates and then I came home from getting the offical Bad Example Family (& Friends) Reunion portrait developed to find that this wonderful group of people had bought me the Hoover Floor Mate that I've been wanting for over a year. I got all misty eyed. No One Has Ever Done Something Like That For Me.

And you know everyone has been thanking me. They just don't realize that this weekend was one of the most selfish things I've ever done. I wanted these people here....in my home......and not much was going to keep that from happening. I would have done just about anything to pull it off. You see, I had talked to just about every single person that was here. Many I had met and had the chance to spend time with. I NEW IT WAS GOING TO BE WONDERFUL. My home was full of laughter, flowing conversation and people. Good people.

I have memories. Wonderful, beautiful memories.

Yeah - it was a selfish weekend. What no one realizes is I win. I win big time.

My wish for you is simple. I hope you feel as loved as I do right now.
