Pete's Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day stampers, scrappers & crafters!

This card is for my dear husband Pete, it was made with lots of special love! (wink)
My serious illness presents to us daily many challenges on many levels. However, sheer will and determination we try to endure God's plan for us.
Just a little something I wrote, since he (Pete) does float my boat! He he! (smile) Not a poet and I know it, just some thoughts to share...
He keeps our ship afloat, (though sometimes adrift), steady at the helm he sets a due course.
At times his tears are hard to fight off his worst fears, then he'll turn to me and say "Don't worry dear".
The seas may be rough ,and somedays smooth as glass, but our love shall prevail as strong as the mast with wihich we sail.
We will sail the seas from sunrise to sunset, and there will be days we certainly get wet!
So set your sails and go with the wind, just remember to take all in!
I wish to you all a very sweet (chocolate) and a loving day and evening! Cherish the heart felt moments, as they are so precious and dear! Got Kleenex?
