I thought I would share this sweet Valentine I received from my cousin, Kelly, in California... this is her little boy, Aiden... isn't he too cute??? He has such a perfectly round head... no need for hair only fuzz.
From my heart to yours... like I said before the days around Valentines Day have always been some of my favorite/memorable times... mostly good memories... but also a few bad. I use to love it when I could make my Valentine box for school... even back then I loved to play with paper... writing out all the Valentines for everyone in my class... even the kid who ate the glue & chewed on the crayons *Ü*... you know we all had at least one kid in the class that did that! (sorry if that kid was you) Picking out the perfect card for the boy I liked... it had to be one that wasn't too mushy for fear he might figure out I had a crush on him... who wants to face rejection in elementary school??? Then there is the year I was 18... I ended up in the hospital for the week with Salmonella... not a fun time... but I got lots of gifts! *Ü* (of course that was the upside) But my favorite of all happened 19 years ago tonight... my sweet husband (then boyfriend) proposed to me... all the romantic gestures a woman could ask for... nice dinner at his place... a dozen red roses, candlelight, roaring fire... and him down on his knee... I will never forget the words he spoke to me... no, it wasn't your typical "will you marry me?"
Such sweet memories! Hope I haven't bored you with my reminiscing. A verse that I have come across the last couple days is:
"Love flashes fire, the very flame of Jehovah. Many waters cannot quench the flame of love, neither can the floods drown it." Song of Solomon 8:6-7
Now, it's your turn... share a sweet memory with me... I love to hear other people's stories.
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
