My first Valentine's Day on HubPages has made me realize that I've never even dated a writer. My first wife was a math prodigy and my current wife is a multi-tasking manager. Both admirable, sure, but not writers....
The women writers on HubPages are mysterious, brilliant, creative, and certainly less full of themselves than most male writers. For that, you get a Valentine from me!
Thank you, Beth. May your valentine be special, too. The holiday is a sort of prelude to Spring to many in my part of the world. The ground is covered in ice and snow as I look out my window now. But..
Beyond Valentine’s Day, Not too far distant now, Spring approaches.
Past reincarnations, Of our fond memory, Blooming as love.
Aw thanks so much. I have had a hard year, but everything is getting better. Just got work, i am teaching people with head injuries in a college in Dublin. I went for the interview two years ago and they just got funding. It is only one day a week, and it may only be for a term but it is a wonderful opportunity for me........ Also have a new grandson called Finn, and i have got some work, in a school teaching knitting and crafts. I could not work last year, after i lost my dad, so soon after losing my mum..... but getting on my feet and happy to be back...... Some things never change, it is nice to receive a warm welcome on hub pages, but so miss Cris.... how sad.........
@ Joy -- I'm sorry that you lost both your mom and dad. I hadn't known that.
Congratulations on your position! Once the funding is in place, there is a very good chance that it will be re-funded next year. I'm looking for work too. I'm leaving, rather left, the field of health care. Onto brighter and better horizons.
Congratulation on Finn! He must keep you busy! Nothing like a wee li'l one to keep you on your toes. Best part -- you get to spoil him rotten and send him home at the end of the day (you will always be the heroine no matter what!) I do that with mine when I see him (yea, he's 4 but lives thousands of kilometers away).
here is Finn, and my daughter Carla........ He has a big brother and sister, and they live quite close so i am blessed. I have 8 grandchildren now. 6 Boys and two girls, these are the only ones living near, the rest are far away. I may look after Finn when his mum goes to back to work in September, we will see how things go...... This is a lovely thread. Nice to speak Beth.
@ Joy -- Your daughter Carla is a beautiful mom!!! And Finn - he's gorgeous!! I miss holding my babies, but as I say, it's the next generation's turn. I never would have guessed you have 8 grandchildren!! You look so young. They are blessed to have a wonderful grandmother like you. My mom looked after my niece when my sister went back to work. They have an incredible bond. Unfortunately, my children and I moved far away and she wasn't able to help me with my little gang. But, she enjoys them immensely when we visit. We stayed with them for over a half a year, a few years ago, and my children and my parents are extremely close.
Family. The best gift in the world.
Thank you Joy, you've brightened my day with your smiles.
you are so kind. She lost a baby weekend my dad died. it was her second miscarriage, so last year was so tough for her too..... We are all back on our feet,, Finn being born in January started the year of brilliantly. Many people are miles away from family and it can be hard sometimes..... one son is in Florida so we dont get to see his 2 boys often.....
Great to see the baby photos and teaching knitting as well.....pure bliss.....Hope you enjoy your new job and your new grandson......Life has a way of turning itself around and healing..........Looks like 2012 is the year for you!
To all of you who are married, single, separated or recently divorced Have a Wonderful Valentine's Day ! :Can someone please tell me how to post pics on here that would be the greatest Valentine ever!!
