{Love}


 February 14th is Valentines Day and a day that love and affection is celebrated.


For our family Valentines day is also a day to celebrate this man, my fatherinlove.


His 85th birthday is on Valentines day and we celebrated a little early with a birthday party. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that celebrated him as he so deserved.


He enjoyed every moment of his party and our family is truly blessed to have him. He has been blessed thus far with good health, good mind and works harder than most young men I know. He never complains and never misses anything that he thinks would be fun to do.  We as a family feel so blessed to have Papa Conner. He keeps our bunch straight!


I talked my man into a quick selfie...which I can't seem to master selfies but here's to you all having a SWEET Valentines day. 


May you each feel the love of Christ...There is NO greater love than the love of Jesus.

Happy LOVE MONTH to all of you SWEET blogging friends.

  6. What a sweet man your fatherinlove is! Aren’t you all blessed to have him! Both Jerry’s and my dads are gone and we miss them so much! (My mom, too). We include Jerry’s mom in most everything we do as a family and it’s pretty easy as she live on the other side of the field! Ha! That selfie looks pretty good - Happy Valentine’s Day, you love birds!

    1. So great to have Jerry's mom close by isn't it? Girl, my arms too short to do selfies and I think Marty would die if I carried a selfie stick around! LOL!

  14. Happy 85th birthday to your sweet FIL. What a blessing to have him still in your lives!! You are so blessed. I was shocked to see that Elvis Presley would be the same age! It's hard to think of him at 85, isn't it??? Wow!!!And Julie Andrews is still so beautiful...and Sonny Bono? That just can't be true. But I guess I am getting up there in age myself...I just try not to think about it in those terms. Looks like you had a wonderful day. Your family is blessed to be so close together and able to enjoy family gatherings often. Happy VAlentine's Day to you and your sweet hubby!!

  18. Hi Cindy, Happy Birthday to your Father in love! I like that cute Special Delivery truck. I had to pin it to show hubby since that was his job when he worked for the Postal Service. I am slowly getting use to my Blogger account, just did another post. Come and see when you can. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
