TRUE LOVE  .....
  • is patient
  • kind
  • does not envy others
  • is not puffed up
  • doth not behave itself unseemly
  • seeketh not her own
  • thinketh no evil
  • rejoiceth not in iniquity
  • rejoiceth in the truth
  • beareth all things
  • believeth all things
  • hopeth all things
  • endureth all things
  • never fails
And now abideth faith, hope and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. (LOVE)
I Corinthians 13:13.

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day ....... I am so glad we can love each other every day not just on holidays.  I am so blessed by my friends and family ......have a blessed week :)

Today I'm gonna let you all in on a big secret.....it's my Mama's 66th birthday !!!  I could go on and on about how sweet, generous, fun, loving, giving, understanding, sharing, hardworking AND always there when I need her kinda person she is....it does indeed take a very special person to survive raising the four of us and go right on to be "Nana" to 15 grandchildren.....yes, I know.....we are very blessed!....but I don't want to embarrass either one of us so I'll just say, "Thank you"  for all you do for our whole family!  We love YOU !!!  We wish you a very "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and many more !!!
