Welcome to Friday~~Finding Beauty
What is more BEAUTIFUL than Love?
Having a love affair with Valentines Daystarted as far back as 4th Grade as I recall. Ahhh yes… Jeff Simons (Dark hair, Dark eyes… *sigh*)
Decorating the inevitable shoe box was the start of Valentines week— then my teacher made sure that each of us HAD to write a Valentines card to everyone in the class! I love that thought now years older… she taught us that even if we didn’t “really like someone” we still had to enclude them and be NICE. I think everyone should be taught to be nice. Seems the world could use a bit more Nice-ness.
Back to Jeff Simons— he put a card in my decorated box that said “Be My Valentine” then chased me on the play ground and slugged me at the swing set.
( I think it’s weird how kids show their affection isn’t it?)
Presently in love or not– Valentines Day is a reminder of how important LOVE is in our lives.
I LOVE the way brand new little babies feet feel and smell.
This picture in my home is MY reminder of how love should be to me…
Love is everywhere…
Couples are everywhere…
These two are VERY in love…
And I LOVE putting up little Vignettes to celebrate Valentines Day because I don’t have a box to decorate. 🙂
But I do encourage you all to take a moment to share the love you have for your friends and family in writing– they are treasure keepers.
When I was VERY young, I loved watching Art Linkletter who had a segment about “kids say the darndest things” … in that spirit here are some of the cutest definitions of LOVE–
From a CHILD’S point of view
~~*I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.
~~*Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.
~~*Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.
~~*When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.
