Happy Valentines Day and Daddy Power!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentines Day! I've been fighting a stomach bug since Friday and haven't given much thought to today. My plan was to sneak away on Saturday to pick up something special for my sweetie. Unfortunately, I stayed in my room in nauseous misery all weekend. So when I walked into the kitchen this morning to a table adorned with a massive arrangement of gorgeous flowers, chocolates and balloons I was a little confused at first--then delighted. A great sense of peace settled over me as I noted that the presentation wasn't only for me. There was an arrangement for all the girls as well (even our son was given a little something).

My parents divorced when I was very young and my Dad was absent. I always associated Valentines Day with handsome princes sweeping worthy princesses off their feet. Perhaps any worthless prince who dressed the part would have done it for me--but for the grace of God. There was definitely a place in me that longed for paternal devotion and validation. Every Mocha Princess deserves to be celebrated by her father. We're doing it big today...hope you are too!


  1. How marvellous!! Love it. Happy Valentine's Day ... though from your post it already is. :)

  2. Oh, that's so awesome! How thoughtful of him. He's setting a wonderful example for the girls and your son.
