From My Hands

i carved out a heart
from an old red envelope 
be my Valentine


* Because of surgery I couldn't leave the house to buy a Valentine's Card for my husband so I had an old red envelope and cut out a red heart then Wrote, "Happy Valentines Day, Be Mine Darling"

    I won't be getting my cervical brace off until March 4th. I surely cannot wait, hating this brace with a passion. With physical therapy, I think it should be fine. I hope. Warm Smiles, Connie
