The Hero and I had ups and downs financially. When Valentine's Day came around, we usually made it a special day for our 6 children, leaving little for us. We developed the tradition of going to the card section after collecting what we were getting for the children, and scouring the cards for what we felt expressed our feelings. Then we would each show the other what we would have bought for them. It was a special feeling, and sometimes we found some funnies too. What I loved the best was when he would write a poem for me or one of the children. He was a special dad and husband, we send him our love on Valentines Day...a sweetheart to never be forgotten.
