Real Examples of Love

Real examples of love in chronological order on this Valentine's Day:

Dropped Salvatore off at school and watched every classmate run and greet him with tremendous love.

Had new and former students give me candy, chocolate, handmade cards, and sweet letters.

Spent the day with my awesome intern, Heather.

Great conversations, lots of snacks, lots of hugs, tons of laughter, and many fabulous teaching ideas shared with co-workers who rock my world.

Major milestones with my 5th grade math group, three of the toughest kids in town working quietly and excitedly with me at the corner table.

David sent me flowers at work.

Dad drops the kids off to me after work and my friends are as excited to see them as I am. And they were adorable, hugging and greeting everyone.

Stopped by to see my best friend, Suzanne, and my Goddaughter Sara and picked up heart shaped pizzas from Papa Murphy's.

Blasted Whitney Houston all the way home. Got a bit teary-eyed. Like listening to a soundtrack of my life with some of those songs.

Watched two episodes of The Big Bang Theory while the kids played with each other and Benedict.

Cleaned the house, packed our lunches for tomorrow, ironed all of our clothes, and snuggled with the kids on the couch.

Currently, I am waiting for David to come home, as he worked a double shift today, to serve him with love...

Thank you Lord.
