Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is one of those love it or hate it type days. Me, well I've done a 180 on it. I used to dislike it, but then 6 years ago my now-husband proposed. Since then, this has been a very special day for us.

It can be a very hectic life we all lead, so even if you are not a fan of the commercial aspect of the day, why not use it as an opportunity to let someone know that they are loved or appreciated. If you do not have a partner, call your parent, sister/brother, or long-distance friend. Maybe there is someone you know who could need a little cheering, and if so why not just do some small kindness for them.

A gesture need only be small to bring immense joy to someone else. For instance, yesterday I opened my mailbox to find a single small envelope lying within. It was this sweet, handmade card from my Mom.

I opened my mailbox and Friday and found a similar card from Mom. I have to admit that it made me teary eyed. Nobody loves you like a Mamma

Ahhhh... so the mystery little sister is in fact, my little sister.
