Love em' up

You may consider it a "Hallmark Holiday".

Something you don't have time for or nothing
to make a big deal about.

Not me....

Today, I savor my coffee, my warm house, my
sweet babies - and their delight at the tiny gifts 
I laid out for them.

Today, I kiss them more than normal and ask
them over and over "Will you be my Valentine?"....
......"Do you know how much your Momma loves you?".

I want to teach them how to love others.
To be kind. To be a light. 

To care for even the smallest
of details in others.
To learn how to make others feel special.

I choose to make it a day to teach them how to 

"Love is not an affectionate feeling, but a steady
wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as
it can be obtained."

"Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions." 1 John 3:18
