A Valentine's Blessing


Meet Valentine. Valentine was a Summer surprise a few years ago. We had surprise puppies. Found out her momma was pregnant on a Saturday and out popped Valentine and her bubbie and sissies Sunday. 

I picked her name because I fell in love with her right away. You know how you can look at a being and just know what their name should be, that's how it was with my Vivi Cakes.

Twice over the past two years Valentine has been hospitalized. We lost her sister Snickers, and it broke my heart, to a random vaccine reaction. Valentine was hospitalized along with her other sister Lily and her bubbie had to receive outpatient care.

They all made it but not my baby Snickers. To this day I still cry every time I think of her.

This Valentine's day is very special because my baby Valentine was hit by a car a few weeks ago. Fortunately, the people who hit her came to the door at my mom's house and carried her in. I flew out of work called the Vet hospital and high - tailed it there with determination and faith.

I held my baby on my lap and comforted her and said prayers to God to please save my baby.

By the time I got her in the door I was covered in blood and told the doctor whatever it takes no matter how much it cost I will gladly do it.

Sitting in the waiting room was all too familiar. I was trying to choke back tears and keep from getting the paperwork they gave me to fill out from getting wet. Then through the door came a true blessing. Stephanie the nurse who had taken care of her before came walking in the door from lunch and said hi. She took one look at my face and she knew. All I had to say was go take care of my Valentine she was hit by a car. 

Stephanie flew back and took over the case from the other nurse. I knew God answered prayers. It wasn't too long after the doctor came out and talked to me and said what he needed to do and gave me an estimate and assured me how lucky I was.

Valentine was hit and fell over. Her nose bled from having a clot come up from her lungs. She had a clot in her lung that should disappear in the next few days. They were going to keep her overnight for observation and I could come visit her later that evening. She was going to be sore for awhile but be just fine.

God answered my prayers. I have my special Valentine for many years to come.

My baby is home and with me today for Valentine's Day.

See Valentines don't always have to be a romantic partner or even your own child.

Your special Valentine could be anything or any being.

I'm the happiest doggie mom today and truly blessed by my special Valentines gift.

I wish you and yours a very Happy Valentines Week.

Blessings to you,

P.S. I'm hoping to finally go shopping this week. The stores are for the most part out of everything since the blizzard a week and a half ago and this last weeks falling snow. Check back later this week for the shopping trips and some incredibly delicious recipes!!!


  1. What an incredible story! I'm so happy you have your sweet Valentine next to you!

  2. Thank You I Alessandra! I feel incredibly blessed too!

  3. I'm glad Valentine was ok. It's so scary when our animals are hurt or in pain. They are our furry children. I had a cat that had a bad reaction to immunizations and I read online to use the homeopathic remedy thuja. Luckily my health food store had it on had. It worked. It saved his life.
    We also found out it's great for gangrene, insect bites and more. We keep it on hand in our medicine cabinet now and it's also great to have on hand camping. ~ Carol
