i heart valentine's day

As long as I can remember I have always loved Valentine's day. Even back in the day when I did not have a valentine, I loved it. I loved exchanging valentine cards with the other kids in the class in elementary school. I loved having secret pals during love your neighbor week in middle school and high school. I loved coming home from school and mom had left a little something for us to show us that she loved us. I loved getting flowers from my dad.

I love that there is a day to remember the ones that we love and make our life rich. For me though the day is so great because it is a day devoted to celebrating what God is. God is love. Now, of course we humans have done what we do best and have commercialized a perfectly wonderful holiday, but your day is what you make it. As for me and my house we will celebrate the love of God today! I encourage you to do the same.

Here are my valentines: I love them so much, they make my life so rich!!!

Here is Lexi preparing valentine cards for the kids in her class. She mostly just liked the puppies on the cards and the stickers.

My Sweet Valentine!
