Best Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day was the best that I have ever had. It did not involve a restaurant, an expensive gift, or a romantic outing.
I spent the day at home cooking and cleaning. When Darren came home, he brought me a red teddy bear with a heart. I cooked fried chicken with chicken and rice. I made chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
It was uneventful but the best Valentine's ever. What made it the best was that last time, we were not together as a family. Last year, my husband and I spent a non-romantic Valentine at the hospital with our 6 year old, while the other boys were 3 hours away with my mother. He had surgery 2 days after Valentine's Day.
I know that being with the people you love most is the best Valentine's present ever.
