My Valentines are no longer with me. They were my 3 shih-tsus They made my life complete, they were great loyal companions. Unfortunately one was taken from me due to Cancer, A year later another was taken due to old age, and last but not least one developed Congestive Heart Failure. I still mourn the losses but it is because I loved them that much.
It seems like a sad Valentines day memory but I feel so blessed to have been able to experience a love so deep that I chose to stay with each until they were no longer with me. I was blessed by each one for their unique personalities and the true joy they brought me while they lived.
I still have 8 Valentines that I share my heart with now and that is my children. They each add something special to my life that no one else can. Even though they are grown, I am now and will always be “mom”, something that no one can take from me.
So even though I don’t celebrate Valentines Day in the traditional sense. I am so grateful for the love I have shared and still share.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
