❤ ⅔ ❤

Here’s 𝟐 of my 𝟑 little Valentines that will forever occupy their own little spaces in my heart. Theodore has taught me that our hearts are cool like that… what the eyes can no longer see, the heart will always remember.  And even though my heart feels very empty with one Valentine gone, the perfectly portioned sections specially reserved for each child will always have


But without a doubt, it is you, Michael Nelson, who constantly flips that switch for me; who turns on that “no vacancy” sign inside my heart when I rather sit in the dark. You illuminate it in the most obnoxious bright neons to constantly remind me that a ‘𝐟𝐮𝐥𝐥 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭’ is not determined by how many of our kids live under our roof, but by how much our love for them withstands time. And just when my “no vacancy” light starts to flicker, you’re right there, recharging it with new batteries; giving me grace when I’m withdrawn, randomly saying Theodore’s name, and validating my every emotion.  It certainly hasn’t been pretty, but somehow you make me feel beautiful while I bear the ugliness of grief. I love you so ridiculously much, Valentine of mine.
