After the death of my husband ,I always tried to take my son Levi out once a week. It started on valentines day. I was sad because this was my first holiday since Jerry has passed away from complications of diabetes.

I thought” I am not going to sit here and feel sorry for myself when I have a very handsome date playing in his bedroom”. We both changed clothes and went out to a nice dinner at Burger King( okay, my date was four years old). Then we went to the toy store to shop after dinner.Levi chose a match box car to add to his growing collection.

Most of Levi’s friends had two parents,being a single parent, Levi knew I could not afford the nicer toys so he didn’t ask me for them.

On my seven year anniversary, Levi and I went out to dinner and a movie. it was nice to get out for the evening- I didn’t stay home feeling sorry for myself and get depressed.I felt I could still have a fun evening plus I had a very handsome date.

Happy Valentines day to all my friends and family. make it a special day shared by those you hold near and dear. hug your kids extra tight and tell them how much they mean to you. I am glad I made everyday count with Levi for one day in July 2007, my life was forever changed again with the death of my son. he was only 20.
