To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
Aaron LOVES Ford trucks. So, for our first "February 14th" together... I stitched the word 'FORD' on this piece fabric that I cut from of a pair of my old jeans and then made it into a pillow. There were thousands of stitches that went into that word and it took me SO many hours. I think I figured out that it took me more than 20 hours to stitch the word 'FORD' onto that jean fabric. It was worth it, because he loved the pillow and always had it displayed somewhere.
This is a pillow that Aaron made ALL by himself. He stitched the words on it AND sewed it into a heart shaped pillow. The only help I gave him was to show him how to use the sewing machine. He did it all by himself and I didn't see what he had created until it was finished. I treasured it when he gave it to me, I have treasured it ever since he gave it to me, and I will continue to treasure it forever. For those who don't know... 'Eu Te Amo' means 'I love you' in Portuguese. He served his mission in Brasil and was fluent in the Portuguese language.
Don't worry, it is just water in those glasses... or maybe sparkling cider.
Words cannot express the emotions flowing through my soul today... I am sure no one has to wonder how I could be feeling today, so I am not going to say much about it. I just wanted to show photos that I love and that show how I feel about my sweetheart. Aaron and I were never that into celebrating February 14, but I just always felt so safe knowing that I had the person who meant everything to me on that day. We didn't need to celebrate... we just spent the time together. So, today will be lonely without Aaron, but I will focus my attention on Aaron Jr. and we will make sure that we have a fun day together.
I love you always, Menino.
