The Seekers and the Digital First authors are talking about warm fuzzies. Warm fuzzies happen all year long, not just on Valentine’s Day. Warm fuzzies can be from your spouse, your kids, your mom, or your pet. Warm fuzzies are anything that make you go awwwwwww, how sweet.
I guarantee some of these tidbits will make you smile.
“We lived an hour away from each other. I lived in the country, he was in the city. On my birthday before he went to work he picked up my then favorite hamburgers and brought them to me. He had just enough time to hand them over and jump back in the truck and return to
Illinois.” Diana Brandmeyer
Iran and I were dating, I remember
riding down the road and he was making up silly songs about me. The rhyming was
actually pretty good, and I remember laughing and trying to get him to stop
because I was afraid he'd actually remember and repeat the words to someone
else. I didn't know him well enough to know that he'd never repeat silly love
songs to others." Pam Hillman
“We were in a night class together and one night he asked me if I wanted to go for coffee after class. Sure. Good looking hunk. Of course. We get to the coffee shop and he starts apologizing for having to cancel the date last Friday. Well we had no date. He had asked another girl out and forgot who she was. He thought it was me. Big mistake. We laughed and really had a fun time talking. Well we've been together 47 years so I keep telling him that was the best mistake he ever made. He agrees.” Sandra Leesmith
“When my son said he wanted me for his mom--in front of a judge.” Diana Brandmeyer
“One year My Cowboy showed up on Valentine's Day when we had three really little girls, and he had three roses in a vase for me, then he had a separate rose for each girl. The next year he came with a cut flower arrangement for me and three tiny arrangements one for each of the girls.” Mary Connealy
|Julie's prized wall grouping from Keith|
“The love of my life is both artist and handyman, so after he built a truly beautiful media room, we decorated it with a leather sectional couch and modern multi-colored pillows. Would you believe he took a picture of one of those pillows and designed three different versions in the same colors, then superimposed them on canvas frames as a wall grouping? “It’s beautiful, babe,” I said, amazed once again at his mind-boggling creativity. “Look closer,” he said, and I squinted a bit, suddenly seeing our entire life before my eyes. Yes, you guessed it—this incredible man actually super-imposed pictures of each of us—me, my son, daughter, daughter-in-law and himself—over the multicolored canvases to create living artwork that captured US!! Let me tell you—I teared up on the spot and threw myself into his arms, giving him the biggest, most grateful kiss I could! What can I say—MasterCard has nothing on him—he’s “priceless.” Julie Lessman
“He kidnapped me! He and my best friend's husband made plans for a night away for us. Babysitting, packed suitcase, and even home made lasagna --all planned! My friend and I didn't have to do anything. We walked down a moonlit path and talked for hours.” Diana Brandmeyer
"We used to ride horses a lot. We'd ride to my parents four miles away and visit for awhile, then ride home late at night. I can still remember the still night, the stars, the sound of horse's hooves clopping down a quiet dirt road, and just the two of us, talking about nothing and everything." Pam Hillman
“Seeing all of my sons wearing tuxes 3 times!” Diana Brandmeyer
"When our first child was born, we were in the hospital, and I remember laying in that hospital bed watching my larger-than-life husband slouched on a hospital sofa teasing our newborn baby's face with the edge of the baby blanket just to watch him screw up his mouth when it tickled." Pam Hillman
|Diana Brandmeyer's stain glass doors|
“Our first Christmas together was bittersweet. I was still feeling sad about moving from my old home, an 1800s limestone block house. That house had a lot of outbuildings and one of them had stain glass windows waiting for a project I never got to do. Christmas morning my gift from my husband was those windows made into doors for what is now my office.” Diana Brandmeyer
“The last thing we tell each other each night is ‘I love you.’” Audra Harders
“Ed used to bicycle to work past the Japanese flower gardens. Well one afternoon he was really thirsty so stopped and asked the lady if he could get a drink. She talked him into buying some flowers for me. When he got home and gave me the flowers, I was so tickled, thrilled and let's just say he was well rewarded for his gift and that was the start of a beautiful thing. He discovered how much that simple gift meant to me and he stopped every Friday until he retired to buy me flowers. He and the lady became quite good friends and she always had a bouquet picked out for him. And I always looked forward to my lovely bouquet of flowers.” Sandra Leesmith
“Even though Gary and I had known each other since 4th grade, we never dated until we were 30! Our very first "date", he invited me over to his place after church to talk and catch up on life. It was Super Bowl Sunday and I just knew I was going to have to compete with the game for conversation. I got there at 1:00 and left around 8:00. We talked, laughed, snacked, and laughed some more. He never turned the television on. It was the best and most memorable afternoon of my life.” Audra Harders
“When my husband brings me soda just because…” Diana Brandmeyer
“Our first Christmas together, he gave me Sorel boots so my feet wouldn't freeze when we went hunting. The following year on my birthday, he gave me a fishing pole and reel because I wouldn't enjoy spring fishing without good equipment. Some folks might think these selfish, male gifts, but I know better. It was
sharing a piece of his heart and life with me.” Audra Harders Gary
|Yeehaw - Lathan riding his first bull!!!|
"I was on a business trip three years ago and received a text from my sister-in-law. Attached was a photo of my husband sitting on the ground and his four-month-old great-nephew petting a baby calf. It's been my background picture on my phone ever since!" Pam Hillman
