So I woke up on Valentines Day to the 2 loves of my life serving me breakfast, who could ask for anything better! I had the best Valentines Day ever! Kasey and I spent the day making frames for our family pictures and then he surprised me with dinner at the Braza Grill- love that place! then he shared this cute little story with me and then shared some cute things he loved about me and then we both started telling each other and it was so much fun! it just made my day! It really means a lot to know how much you might mean to someone!!! And I thought I would post the story so all you women (and or men) can read it and try to always remember it! I have to thank my mom for sending it to Kasey. She is always thinking of her loved ones! And I can happily say that every day of my life my sweet Kasey reminds me of my great worth and always lets me know how much I mean to him! I am so lucky and so happy that I ended up with my best friend! I have to thank the Craven's for raising him up so well!! He is so wonderful and on this day of romance and cheesiness : ) I just wanted to share a bit of the romance I received today! : ) I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines day! and remember ladies how great you are!!!

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman, He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said, “Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart -and she will do everything with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."
"She is soft," the Lord agreed, “but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?” asked the angel.

The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,” the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
