My Valentine Blessings

On Valentine's Day, I didn't have my husband and my daughter to myself. We were celebrating it with my in-laws. I would have wanted to celebrate it with my own family as well but they were literally in different places. Aside from that, the invitation from my in-laws came ahead. It was like we were really booked to be with them on February 14 like two weeks ahead. It was a fun celebration even though it was more of a birthday celebration and fiesta in honor of the patron saint, Sto. NiƱo. I am happy to say that my in-laws really treated me like their real family even from the start of our marriage. Because we are really family now, right? There were lots of food prepared on the table. And I managed to eat just a little of everything. All right, I guess I slipped again. But it's Valentine's Day, okay? And there are February birthdays to celebrate. So, why shouldn't I partake?  :-)





Even the papaya's felt really special on that day.

Overall, it turned out to be the best Valentine's celebration because it is celebrated with family. Valentine's Day is all about love and families. Anyhow, I have all the time with my husband and my daughter at home, every single day. I am happy because I'm blessed to have them in my life.


With that, I will end this post with a beautiful article about Faith Declarations from my favorite inspirational speaker and writer, Brother Bo Sanchez. I suggest that you guys really read it. It's a short article, anyway. They are faith declarations for married people, people wanting to get married, and for people who want to remain single with God's grace. Let us all be inspired, not just on Valentine's Day, but every day of our lives.
