I didn't post on the "plans for Valentine's Day" thread because I wasn't expecting much this year. We had planned to reinforce the foundation to our house before we found I have cancer, and between the foundation and the cancer treatments, money is very tight. Also, my DH hasn't been a big Valentine's Day celebrator in previous years; he doesn't do cards and usually doesn't plan much.

My best friend, who has been giving me energy healing treatments quite often (aiming for once a week, sort of getting there when weather permits!), was going to be alone for Valentine's Day because her DH is participating in a bicycle race in Florida, so we invited her to join us for lunch. I asked my DH if he would cook something for us, suggesting something with shrimp because I know Paula loves shrimp.

When I arrived home from church--expecting to vacuum and set the table--I found my DH vacuuming. He had already set the table--with our beautiful handmade Lily of the Valley embroidered table cloth and the beautiful china and crystal I inherited from my mother--it was gorgeous! He had planned a special meal with big beautiful shrimp and asparagus and a loofah curry and Thai Ruby Rice (Khao Deng Red Rice). He had Godiva chocolates for us both . . . oh, my! I was so surprised and overwhelmed!

It was the most wonderful Valentine's Day, made even more wonderful because I didn't expect it!

    What a Man!
    Many husbands cook but for a husband to set the table elegantly with the handmade table cloth, china, and crystal, now that is a rare man! To me, he showed you how much he truly loves you because he knew all that he did would bring you pleasure on that day, Valentine's Day. What a memory!!! Memories are priceless!

    Lots of Hugs and Lots of Love,
    Janelle

    I think he's a keeper! ;)
    Wonderful memories indeed! He just zoomed out the door to go teach, then he'll zoom back home to take me to my fourth A/C chemo treatment.

    Today will be my last A/C--I'll be halfway through chemo!! HOORAY!

    Thanks for all the compliments on my wonderful guy!

    Hugs! Sandy
