Write Big, Use Small Words: Best Love Ever

Look on your Valentine’s Day Candy.

What words do you read?

Are they long or short?

Does your candy say: Indulge My Passion or Flirtatiously Yours?

Sometimes you need no words at all to say, “I love you.”

In June 2012, my husband, son and I moved out of our apartment after he lost his job. It was another heartbreaking challenge for us.

Not long after, a storm came.

It destroyed roofs and buildings, including the front part of our favorite fresh food market.


John, who is a builder and intelligent in structural design, found the material and went with my dad to put on the roof.



Now I’m old-fashioned in some ways.

I like a man who gets on top of a roof to work.

My husband did that. He worked with his great strength. In a time when we had little, he gave everything.



His work has withstood many more storms.
