Joey Feek is in festive mood as she shares a sweet Valentine’s Day kiss with daughter, Indiana. The singer, dressed in holiday-appropriate red, shared a photo of the moment on Instagram. The photo caption read, “…happy Valentine’s Day mama.”
Feek, who is in the final stages of her cancer, has candidly shared photos and moments from her cancer journey through her husband Rory’s blog, This Life I Live. In the most recent blog post, Rory shared that he and Joey had their first date on Valentine’s Day in 2002.
“The horse-vet clinic Joey worked for at the time, Tennessee Equine Hospital, had a Valentines get-together for their staff and she invited me to come with her,” Rory wrote. “That night must’ve gone pretty well … because two months later we were engaged and two months after that, Joey and I were married.”
Rory goes on to share what his wishes are for celebrating with his bride this year, but that this will be a Valentine’s Day unlike the rest as Joey’s health doesn’t allow her to get out of bed.
“What I really want to do on this, our 14th Valentines together, is share a romantic candle-lit dinner with my bride: grill out rib-eyes on the campfire back home, pour two glasses of red wine and sit across from her at our kitchen table – just like we’ve done on more than one special occasion,” wrote Rory. “But those things aren’t able to happen this year.”
“So my hope this year instead is to hold her hand and take her on a ‘virtual’ walk down memory lane together… with pictures and videos on my laptop. I want to take her back to where our lives first began together, and relive this beautiful journey that God has taken us on …”
This week is set to be an eventful one for Joey and Rory. On Monday, the duo is up for their first Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their rendition of Townes Van Zandt’s “If I Needed You.” Rory will be home with Joey during the award show, but their adult daughters will be ready to accept the award on their behalf should they win.
Wednesday, the couple’s daughter, Indiana, will celebrate her second birthday, an event that Joey has prayed to see.
