We celebrated Valentine's day with sweet friends from church this year. It was joyful chaos.
Our long line of mailboxes:
Tiny little preschoolers delivering valentines. The word "adorable" doesn't even come close.
This is what happens when 15 kids try to give one valentine to each of their friends... a beautiful mess:
Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Scoffers call it the "Hallmark" holiday, and that may be true. But when I became a mom, I fell in love with the sweetness of it all. I love the handmade mailboxes and the little paper valentines with their names scrawled across, half the letters backward. I love making construction paper garlands and icing three dozen sugar cookies. I love celebrating a day that is important to them, and reminding them that they are important to me.
"I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved."
