 I love the old Victorian valentines, and those I sent as a little girl. Today's offerings are foreign to me with pictures of characters I don't recognize.

 Did you ever wonder what your friends would see if they could look into your heart?
If they looked into mine they would see my children and their offspring, my sisters, my friends, my puppies, pretty shoes, flower gardens and Chocolate to name a few. I hope they would see Jesus there too.

What would people see if they could look into your heart?


 Sweet valentines like this make me smile. I remember how exciting it was to make valentines to put the big valentine box the teachers made at school. I also remember the long wait until the afternoon Valentine's party where students were chosen to pass out all the cards and we got Kool*Aid and cupcakes and cookies. YUM! These were wonderful treats. Most of us didn't get sweets very often.

Those days are long past and most of the children who gave me cards are forgotten but I am blessed to still have the very best Valentine of all. I will never forget Him, and He will never forget me.

Happy Valentine's Day, dear Bev:-) Make sure you come over to pick up your Valentine!!

I also love the Victorian style valentines and I wish they would come back!!

I remember the excitement at school on Valentine's Day as well. We would decorate a shoe box with lots of lace, glitter and hearts and our schoolmates would place their valentines to us in the box. I couldn't wait to get home to look through all of them:-) xoxo

Those are some sweet valentines! I remember a few of the parties when I was in school. Today I got to go to the party at my son's school. Things have changed. No homemade baked goods are allowed anymore. The parties have to focus on crafts and games instead of the food. I was so tired after that party. Why is all of that energy wasted on the kids? lol

Belated happy Valentine's Day to you, MM.

I now have a new blog and have explained why in the first post. It was time for a change and I had to go with it.

Take care

If someone looked into my heart what would they see. A silly selfish old duck who didn't make enough time to do it all cos she got to busy with the un-important stuff, like earning money to get by.
Happy belated valentine Bev.
