Incredulous

"What did you say? Did I miss something?"

Mr. O wants to know what all the fuss is about.

The boys burst out in laughter.

"What's so funny?"

J.P turns to his older brother and teases him about his school crush.

"Dude, you're so awkward around her."

"What? I am not!"

"You say funny things to her."

"No, I don't!"

More giggling, and playful nudging.

"I never said I liked her!"

"Uh-huh."

Mr.O and I glance at each other.

It's a conversation we don't hear every day.

Incredulous, I tell you.

And quite hilarious too.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's Valentine's Day.

And not everything is about roses, romance and chocolates.

Today, it's more than that.

It's from the heart.

So when my brother messaged me to say he'd pick me up, and take me to watch my boys sing at the local mall.

I was delighted to hear such wonderful news!

Both of my boys are in the school choir. And they would perform in the annual event, Choir Festivals Canada. Along with other school choirs in the region.

We arrived early, happy to see shoppers, parents and teachers gathered around the stage.

Music and song filled the shopping centre.

I must say we were their biggest fans; taking pictures and video.



I am so grateful that my brother took the time out to watch his nephews perform.

Even A.R and J.P were surprised and happy to see him there.

But more importantly, it was my brother's thoughtfulness that made this Valentine's
Day so special.


Just by being with the ones you love.

What a beautiful Valentine's gift!
