My mom had a journal given to her in 1958 by her great friend, the late actor Nick Adams. She kept all the love notes between her and my Daddy Wagner in this journal. Here is one that I find especially touching…
Full of young love, innocence, and hope. I remember my Daddy Wagner always made a big deal of Valentines Day. He would usually buy her a beautiful piece of jewelry that he would engrave an inscription on. Two of their favorites were “Wow Charlie” and “More than Love”
My Daddy Wagner still sends me, Katie, and Courtney flowers every Valentines Day. He always signs them “From your secret admirer” (but we know who it is from.)
Hold those you love closely. Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers. Our hearts are big enough to celebrate all the loves in our lives. Daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and dearly loved friends.
