How Do I Love Thee? (Special Guest Speaker Billy Joel!!)

As I write this the kids are moments from going to bed and Mandy is still at school. Today is Valentine's Day and it's a little different then previous years for a number of reasons. School being one of them of course, the other being this is our last Valentine's Day at our home of 10 years. I don't know how she does it going to class, working full time, packing boxes, and still finding time for the kids. Honestly there simply aren't words in my vocabulary to describe how wonderful I think she is or how much I am in love with her. Thankfully that's why God gave the world Billy Joel:

To Make You Feel My Love
When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

Among other things the boys and I made Mandy Valentines Day Butterflies this year:

In return my bride blessed me with the gift of cracked black pepper bacon! I've already downed one pack and the other will be gone in days. Better than a bunch of chocolate any day if you ask me.
