I’m not much of a holiday person at all, especially the ones that seem to exist for the sole purpose of keeping retail sales from slumping between the “big” holidays.
But, Erica made me a bunch of neat cards all week. Some are little squares, some are cross-stitched folded-cards, and one is a watercolor BMO valentine from Etsy.
So, the best I could do was make a simple card with a beautiful but web-stolen graphic of hearts in a tree of life on the front, and a few simple words inside:
You are so good to me.
I appreciate all of the daily things.
I appreciate your love, tolerance, and friendship.
I don't want you to be just my valentine.
Please get old with me.
We can count wrinkles and ailments together.

Also, I offered to pay for a Groupon for house cleaning.
Her life-long goal is to have a housekeepr.
I don’t really have the $$ to pay a full time keeper,
but from time to time, as a gift — I can do that.
But not me. I’m personally lazy.
I’ll work on other things for money, and
trade that money to pay someone else to clean.
