I felt Loved today. I had many phone calls, cards, and visits from friends and family. Even some facebook greetings and emails. I received thoughtful gifts from my children and grandchildren. I spent most of the day making valentines with my 17 year old granddaughter. It was a very happy birthday. I also put flowers on my parents graves. I am grateful to them for the gift of life, and so much more. When my mother was living, I gave her flowers on my birthday since I was 16 yrs old. So it has been 50 years that I have had that happy tradition.
