Don’t you just love Valentine’s Day?
I know I am one of the few.
With it being only two days away, I already gave my husband and son their cards and my five year old is all geared up for his school party tomorrow where they do an exchange.
This year I wrapped up marshmallow pops in the shape of either “Shimmer and Shine” (for the girls) and “the incredible hulk” (for the boys).
I was in Walmart yesterday talking with the cashier about the special day and he said “all kids wants nowadays is the food.”
I’m not sure what this meant but I too, remember when Valentine’s Day meant something more…like how you would be individually addressed a Valentine and how it could so easily be read into if you were really good at it like I was…
Now though, they don’t want anyone to feel left out or to feel cross, so in order to hyper guard feelings no names are to be used when handing out candy or those mini cards. You get what you get.
I think it is sort of a shame, but it reminded me that God’s love for me is all that matters anyways and even though I can share my own love as much as I can, God ultimately is my Savior. He is my love.
I hope you have a good day. It is raining here and icy but our hearts are full of hope.
Until next time—much love to you!
