I have to be honest. I woke up grumpy. I woke up feeling overwhelmed by the disaster strewn all throughout our apartment. I woke up to dirty dishes and piles of trash to take out. I woke up to a husband and baby who are still sick and I can't seem to make them better. Nice way to wake up on Valentine's day, right?

But, I was able to make some surprises for my man and spend a little time alone once the munchkin was down for a nap. I spent some time thinking, praying and listening. Not only is it a day to show your love for others in your life, but I think it's an awesome day to be thankful for what you have.

This time 2 years ago I was on a cocktail of drugs to improve our chances of getting pregnant. We were praying, hoping and just waiting. Well, now I've got the most wonderful little girl in the world (I'm pretty biased). I have a man who loved Jesus, me and the Church. What the heck is there to get all grumpy about?

So, I'm over it. It's a great day. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
