When Granddaddy came home for lunch yesterday, he sneaked down the stairs with these beautiful roses behind his back. Of course, Mimi was busy at her sewing machine and barely looked up when he walked through the door ~ then all of a sudden a sea of red was between my face and my machine. What a sweet surprise from my Sweetheart of Forty Years!
As I placed the bouquet in water and tied some tulle around the vase, I thought about our first Valentines Day together and knew the roses really shouldn't have been a surprise this year . . . you see, girls, granddaddy has been doing the same thing for almost all of these 40 years.
Thank you, Granddaddy for another beautiful bouquet!
ps ~ Mimi was the only one of the 4 girls to get a surprise from their hubby that first Valentines Day ~ yeah for Granddaddy!
