The day before Valentine's Day Ward came home from work a little bit earlier then normal. I needed to run to the store so he drove and I vented! It has been one of those days. Lots of running around, a 9 year old who thinks she knows EVERYTHING, I didn't have all the ingredients for dinner, lots of homework, ect. You know the day, the kind when you can't wait to crawl back into bed. As he drove I went on and on about my day. He laughed, gave advice, but most of all he just listened and let me unload. When we got home I went in the house while he unloaded his car from work. I was already in the kitchen trying to finish an already late dinner when he walked in with beautiful roses, and a card for me along with a BIG box of chocolates for the girls. I read the card and cried, he always finds the one that was written just for us. He held me tight, whispered in my ear and made the whole day melt away.
