Ahh February, the Love Month
By Wayne R. Nelson

Because of St. Valentine’s Day, February is often thought of as the "Love Month".

First smile! First step! First word! First love!

My son is still in that indescribable euphoria that arrives on the wings of a first child. He wears that special glow that marks each day with expectation. He’s discovering tugs on heartstrings he never knew existed, and a new melody stirs daily. You know; that smile that never fades and that step you just know is going to shoot him to the moon if something doesn't keep him earthbound.
