A Sweet Gift

My husband asked me,
"Did they come yet?"
I answered, "what?"
 
I looked on the
front porch and saw a
big box.  I guess
they delivered it when
I wasn't home.
 
I opened the box,
and in it was
12 perfect red roses,
a card, and a
box of chocolates.
 
What a surprise!
 

 
Yes, it was a
sentimental day
for me.

Sweet, sweet.
I got an ice storm, clean up and an "oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day." But so did he. Actually what I really got was worth more than anything-lights, water, and heat! Insurance will fix the rest.

After the story of the chocolate box I am not surprised Sheri!
You just gave a new example of 'And they lived happily ever after.'
So glad your Valentine did not forget you!
God bless,

Not always "happily ever after" Noelle; some good times mixed with hard times. But after 36 years together, he's still my valentine. :~)

A lovely surprise. Red roses and chocolates too. I love to receive chocolates on Valentine's Day - well actually any day! I'm such a chocoholic.

Purple Flowers said...

Dear Sheri: I love "Sweetheart's day" - it is very special to us. Isn't it great to breathe in the gorgeous scent of roses, and your first bite of a yummy chocolate?!

Yes, that song on my blog has very gypsy-like musical tones. I think it's beautiful. If you want songwriter, etc., e-mail me.

Hope you are having a great Valentine weekend!

Barbara said...
