Happy Valentine's Day (thank you Hallmark)

I love Valentine's Day....not just because I am a chocoholic and it gives me a good excuse to stock up on chocolate to maybe share with everyone I know...It is a day to remind those you love that you love them and are thankful for their love ...whether they want to be reminded or not...sort of a second Thanksgiving...

So here goes...I love you all....

My family...Mom and Dad, my brothers and sisters-in-law...tho we do not always see eye to eye...know I love you and do appreciate you and the good times we share...

My co-workers...those that make going to work bearable and those that make me appreciate that I do not have to put up with them outside of the office...

My long-time friends...thanks for the good times we share remembering past escapades and planning future ones..for sharing life's little (and big) ups and downs...for growing together and apart and back together and maintaining the friendship...

Those young and old who have come into my life via my children...friends, coaches, parents, teachers...the good, the bad, and the ugly..I hope we have all given each other something positive...

The friends I have met while on-line dating...for the laughs we shared and for what we have learn from each other...

The guys I met just briefly while on-line dating....I have laughed a lot and learned so much from each of you...like what I was NOT looking for...like what I THOUGHT I wanted...I have no regrets and I apologize to anyone I may have hurt...it really was unintentional...I am who I am, tho I try not to be at times...

Those guys I met on line who still keep in touch (especially Bad American)...thank you...your friendship means so much to me...

RichyB...I thank my God everyday that you have come into my life..I never thought I would meet someone with such a giving heart and who is so good to me and who is interested in and cares about my family ...you never cease to amaze me...I am not sure how we will end up but know I do love who you are and I hope I can give to you what you need...you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers...

Ames...you make G-man smile and you are so sweet...

K...you are good to and for my CareBear and I love that you are part of our family...

And most of all...for my three wonderful children...ldboy, CareBear, and G-man...each of you in your own way..you are the light of my life and an inspiration to me...you are a joy to watch as you grow through life...I learn so much from you and enjoy all the time we get to share together...

OK...enough of the mush...time to break out the chocolate...:)

Hey there,

BA is pretty much dead. Go ahead and call me Keith.

And thank you so much for that. You are really a sweetheart and deserve the best.

Hey Keith, bummer about BA - no wonder I could not find the blog...I hope you consider publishing a new (maybe lighter) blog....As much as I hate political discussions, I love your ideas of what should and should not be in online profiles:)
