Look on your Valentine’s Day Candy.
What words do you read?
Are they long or short?
Does your candy say: Indulge My Passion or Flirtatiously Yours?
Sometimes you need no words at all to say, “I love you.”
In June 2012, my husband, son and I moved out of our apartment after he lost his job. It was another heartbreaking challenge for us.
Not long after, a storm came.
It destroyed roofs and buildings, including the front part of our favorite fresh food market.
John, who is a builder and intelligent in structural design, found the material and went with my dad to put on the roof.
Now I’m old-fashioned in some ways.
I like a man who gets on top of a roof to work.
My husband did that. He worked with his great strength. In a time when we had little, he gave everything.
His work has withstood many more storms.
