... with all of the memories
With all of the memories and people
that touched our hearts this month, we
seem to have forgotten that February is the month
of Valentines! Especially the chocolate ones! The romantic or
the sentimental, old fashioned or homemade... even heart-shaped cookies
..... we never included a picture or a crumb or a sentiment. I love the old
fashioned ones with the lace all around the edges.I remember when we were
in school, especially in the younger grades,the teachers would make a box
that was decorated in hearts and crepe paper, sealed with just a slit on the
top of the box, and we all had to bring in Valentines for our "secret loves".
You could hardly wait to see if your secret admirer would bring in
a special Valentine for you. I can remember pretending that
I really didn't mind if my first grade "true love"
didn't give me a really mushy card, but gave
me one with a cowboy and Indian on it.
I wanted one with Cupid and his
and arrow. I treasured the
cowboy card and
Those were the good old days!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Happy Valentine's Day all!
