A Little Story

I went to the mailbox early in the morning on Valentine's Day, and saw a card from Jess.  I said to myself,  "I'm going to open it after I get my coffee so I can enjoy it"  (I didn't notice the back of the card that said "open when you wake up on Valentine's Day").  So, I got my coffee and goodie and went to the park and opened up Jess' card.   Inside the card was a Starbuck's card!  I smiled big because she knew exactly what I'd like, and even though I couldn't use it at that particular time, I'll use it sometime soon.  : ) 



I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day, friends.  I got cards and a sweet call from Nel and my friend, Anne, some See's chocolate, and I received a most special gift at the park.

It's so wonderful to get those sweet tokens of love, especially when your dear one is so far away. It keeps your hearts connected until you can see each other again. Such a treat to see the hummingbird. I think they are little messengers of love. Sending hugs xo Karen

Oh Karen, I'm not too far away from Jess, so I see her often, and my son lives in the same town; it's only Nel who lives in Georgia right now. She got a job offer that she couldn't pass up, but it will only be for a year or so, then she's back to Calif. : )

Sounds like you had a delightful Valentine's Day. I adore the photo of the sweet hummingbird! The park sounds like a great place to enjoy coffee. I hope you have a wonderful evening. xoxo

My husband surprised me with a mini-rose plant and a box of thin mint cookies from thegirlscouts. I LOVE those cookies.

Sweet story and thank you for sharing. :-) It made me smile.
Happy Valentine's Day for me was a homemade LEGO heart made by my youngest son. xx oo
I found it hiding in some of my paperwork. My sweet boy!

A special day indeed.
Love, Carla

Hi Sheri,
What a lovely card! You are truly blessed.
I just returned today, had spent the past two days spoiling my great-grandchild.
Thank you for visiting.
It was a real joy to work on. At times was a challenge, but they all worked together to get the job done.
Blessings,
Penny

That is so sweet Sheri, I could cry :) I wonder if my kids would do that too when they're living on their own. I got flowers and chocolates on Valentine's day but we just stayed home, nevertheless, it was good as long as it's spent with family. Love this post as usual.

Hello Sheri,

What a heartfelt post that once again proves some of the best things in life are the simplist. I hope you, your girls and theirs are all well and so nice to have read that of your Valentine's Day. I hope that you soon get to enjoy your favorite morning, brew, that you save the See's pecan caramels for last, and continue writing and sharing with us.

Blessings to you and yours,

Dave

One of my favorite Children's story's also, Sheri.
I really enjoy working with balsa wood.. Soft enough to cut with and knife.
Oh the rain is pounding now! The roses are finally coming back.
Stay warm and dry.

Penny

Oh how delightful! Indeed, she knew just what you would enjoy {{smiles}} I enjoyed a Chai Tea Latte this morning from Starbucks and everytime I go there I think of you and your love for hot drinks. I wish I would enjoy one with you in person.

Much love to you, Sheri!
