We ALWAYS ALMOST forget Valentines Day!
Am I a bad mom for almost forgetting this super fun holiday every year? It's not that I don't give it much thought, it's actually one of my favorite times of year to enjoy the color red and pink at the same time. I don't know why I don't try harder. Oh, maybe it's because I might get lucky to even get a card myself so I don't want a big build up for nothing...yeah that's probably it.
But I still think my kid should have something special from their Dad and I. So, when I got these great lunch totes back from Thirty One, I put them aside for just this!
I stupidly ran to Wal-Mart tonight to get a few extra things to stuff in them. What was I thinking?? After my 2 hour trip that should have been 30 minutes tops, I swung my car sideways into Krispy Kreme when I saw the light was flashing hot. The kids will have to eat them cold or warmed over but I thought that after standing with every fool in Chattanooga in line tonight to buy what was left of the Valentines junk I deserved a melt in my mouth doughnut! Did I mention my diabetes doesn't like me to eat doughnuts...yea, I don't like my diabetes very much this time of year.
Don't you love those glitter hearts??? Those beauties where only $2 for ALL of them. I love them. I used some of those glue dots and some curling ribbon. Cleaned the table off and set the stage. Now I'm tired and should go to bed so that I can get up and get ready for church and hopefully make my beloved Sunday School class on time. I love church!!!
Anyway, so, we'll celebrate this pagan holiday with LOVE!
abide by these three; faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is LOVE!!!
1 Cor. 13:13
I know Bible verses don't have "!" points but I love using them to stress the importance of things on a too often basis. This is one of my favorite verses. I hope you have a LOVING day. Now go LOVE on someone!
