It only comes but once a year
That day that fills our hearts with cheer
We tend to shop and buy sweet things
We think will make our loved ones hearts sing
Roses and candy, cards and bears
Truly bring most hearts to tears
So on this wonderful Valentine's Day
I hope that your loved ones really can say
They truly are blessed to have you as their kin
To cheer them and help them enjoy their day with a grin.

Hope all of you my online friends have a wonderful Valentines Day!!

To a brand new beginning!!

November 4, 1978 Edwin Eugene Dulaney and Bessie Robinson said "I do" to each other in Bucyrus, Ohio. They did not marry for love but out of necessity. Ed's wife had died tragically six months before leaving him with five small children to raise on his own. His health was not in very good shape and he needed someone to help him with his children. Bessie was a single mom with two children and no money to raise them. Thus, began a saga that will forever be etched in the memory of each of their children.

The years went by with a lot of tears, toil and hurt feelings. Somehow through it all, Ed and Bessie managed to stay together. I believe they learned to love each other even though the odds were against them in a mighty way.

Then five years ago, Ed decided that he didn't want to be married anymore. The love of God had gone out of his heart and along with it the desire for his wife. Their divorce was final the winter of 2004 leaving Bessie with no home or income and Ed with an empty void in his life.

A move to Hobe Sound Florida was in the plans for Bessie. The change was good for her. The warmer weather and more job opportunities was just what she needed. Not too long after her move to FL, Ed decided that he needed to move there as well. Through the help of his children, Ed was able to get the counseling that he needed for his life and eventually found Christ as his Savior. God did a miraculous work in His life and changed him completely.

Over the next year or so Ed and Bessie began to rebuild their relationship. They spent some time together going to dinner, church, etc. Some of his children opposed this new relationship, and so did some of hers. Ed and Bessie did not let that waver them from finding out their feelings for each other. They soon began to bask in the love of each other and on January 31st, 2009 they said "I do" all over again. This time they were bound in Holy Matrimony with love in their hearts for each other and God.

Some of their children opposed this reunion and others felt that it was ok. They all had their reserves but felt that Ed and Bessie needed to do what they felt was right.

So begins a new saga for this family. This one I know will not have the same obstacles that it had before. Their will be new mountains to climb such a failing health and adult children who will have their opinions to pass. But God will be right there with them through it all.

Congratulations Mom and Dad. Here's to a wonderful life together for as long as you both shall live. I think you look great!!

2. WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME? Yes, a year and a half


4. WAS ABORTION AN OPTION FOR YOU? Never!! If you want to abort just kill the one your currently have instead of going through the physical pain. It's the same difference.

8. DUE DATE? March 5th

9. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS? Only for about 10 minutes and not in the morning but around five in the evening. It was June and very warm. I left work every day at that time and went out into the heat. I think that was what made me feel a little queasy. I never vomited though.

10. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE? Nothing really. I did eat Big Mac's for a week at one point.

11. WHO/WHAT IRRITATED YOU THE MOST? I don't remember being irritated all that much.

15. DID YOU HAVE A BABY SHOWER? Yes...we had 2 showers.

My mom,Toms mom, my friend Tiffany was my coach, Tom's aunt was in the background and couldn't really see anything and the doctors and nurses. I had a nurse who did a double shift because she wanted to see the baby born. It's a story I'll post someday.

22. WAS IT NATURAL OR C-SECTION? Natural. I had 4th degree lacerations and was really sore for about 2 weeks. The sidz (sp?) bath was nice.
