I DIDN'T POST YESTERDAY, BUT, WITH GOOD REASON.  THE LORD BLESSED ME BY ALLOWING ME AND MY SWEETHEART OF 37+ YEARS, TO SPEND THE ENTIRE DAY TOGETHER, OUT OF THE HOUSE.  WE BEGAN OUR DAY BY LEAVING THE HOUSE AT 6:30 A.M., HEADING NORTH ON A 3 HOUR TRIP FOR A DOCTORS APPT. FOR OUR SEMI-ANNUAL CHECKUP.  ALL IN ALL, NO DRASTIC CHANGES OR PROBLEMS WITH EITHER OF US.  THAT OUT OF THE WAY, WE WERE ABLE TO MEET UP WITH OUR SON AND DAUGHTER IN LAW FOR A BRIEF VISIT.  WAS SO GOOD TO SEE THEM, BUT HEATHER APPEARED SICK AND FELT FEVERED.  SHE HAD COME FROM THE DOCTORS, AND HAD GOT AN INJECTION, HOPE SHE FEELS BETTER SOON.


AFTER OUR VISIT, WE GASED UP THE TRUCK AND HEADED FOR ST. CLAIRSVILLE, OH, TO THE MALL PLAZA.  ERN HAD ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED FOR VALENTINE'S DAY, AND WHAT I WANTED WAS TO GO TO OLLIE'S BARGAIN STORE AND THE GABRIEL'S STORE AT THAT PLAZA.


WE FOUND A COUPLE GOOD BARGAINS AT BOTH STORES, BUT THE BEST PART OF IT ALL WAS BEING TOGETHER, FORGETTING ALL OUR DAILY TROUBLES, AND JUST ENJOYING EACH OTHERS COMPANY.  I THINK THAT GOD KNEW THAT IT WAS SOMETHING WE BOTH NEEDED.  WE ENJOYED ALL THREE MEALS OUT YESTERDAY, OF COURSE, WE UTILIZED THE DOLLAR MENUS.  WE ALWAYS DO, MAKES US FEEL SPECIAL TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT BOTH OF US ATE FOR $5.00.  WE HAVE ALWAYS SETTLED FOR LESS, IN AN ATTEMPT TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE WANT, AND STILL PROVIDE FOR OUR CHILDREN.  I GUESS IT IS JUST HABIT NOW, AS IT IS ONLY THE TWO OF US. 

SO MANY PEOPLE TODAY PUT SUCH EMPHASIS ON HOW MUCH MONEY THEY SPEND DOING THINGS, THAT THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE IS LOST IN THE COST.  THE COST OF SOMETHING ISN'T WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT, THE VALUE OF THE EXPERIENCE IS, IN MY OPINION, THE FEELING THAT YOU COME AWAY FROM IT WITH.  IF YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HOW YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE IT TO THE NEXT PAYDAY, AND THAT STRESSES YOU, WHY BOTHER DOING IT. IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO RUN COMPETITION WITH THE JONES, YOU ARE COMPLETELY MISSING THE BIG PICTURE.  I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN  A LOW MAINTENANCE KIND OF GIRL, IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE ME HAPPY.  NEVER HAD A BIG CHURCH WEDDING, HONEYMOON, OR BIG FLASHY RINGS, BUT, I HAVE MANAGED TO STAY MARRIED ALOT LONGER THAN ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD ALL THOSE THINGS.  I'M NOT SAYING THAT I HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT IT, BUT IT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM SPENDING MY LIFE WITH THE MAN THAT GOD SENT TO SAVE ME FROM THE PATH OF DESTRUCTION THAT I WAS ON.  I GUESS THAT GOD HAS BEEN WORKING LITTLE MIRACLES FOR ME FOR A LONG TIME.  HE HAS ALWAYS KNOWN THAT I WASN'T PERFECT, BUT HE SENT ME THE PERFECT MAN FOR ME TO LOVE.  THANK YOU GOD FOR PROVIDING ME WITH JUST WHAT I NEEDED, AT THE VERY MOMENT I NEEDED IT.  SEARCHING MY MIND FOR THE ANSWERS TO MY DIFFICULTIES AT THE MOMENT, MAKE ME UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS PROVIDED FOR ME, AND ALWAYS WILL.  I JUST PRAY THAT I CONTINUE TO BE WORTHY.

P.S.  ALL CAPS TODAY CAUSE I GOT ONE OF THOSE NEW SILICONE KEYBOARDS AND I AM STILL TRYING TO GET USED TO THE DIFFERENCES.
