Recently, we met at her home, for our weekly Bible Study. We got to see firsthand, the long
wool runner that she made.
It was her first attempt at this skill, and I must say, we were all quite impressed. She sat at
a loom to create this masterpiece.
It added so much beauty to her long dining room table.
Her hospitality is always warm and gracious! Along with that, she is a gifted decorator.
The Valentine touches she added to her home, were so pretty!
Simple, colorful, and festive! It made our coffee time together, so special!
Even the strawberries were heart shaped.
My gift to each one, was a bag of homemade "Saltine Cracker Candy with Toasted Pecans".
It is one of my husband's favorite snacks. You can find the easy to make recipe here;
Thanks to the dollar bin at the Target Store, I put together these small gifts.
At my kitchen sink, there are a few more touches of this fun holiday. I especially like my heart
mug, and the small bouquet that my oldest granddaughter made for me, at her first flower
arranging class. You can imagine how special it is to me!
Whether it is the first time at the loom, or the first flower arranging class, the finished
product, will be a blessing to others.
A jar of tiny hearts, sharing a bit of sweet with whoever walks into my kitchen. Whatever
you share this Valentine Day, it should be done from the heart, and it should say, "I care".
After all, we all need to know that someone cares. In the political world right now, you
hear hurtful things being thrown continually, by candidates to candidates.
In real everyday life, kindness does matter!
