As If to Say “Hello, Love”

Valentine’s Day is for everyone!  I use the day to send “love note” reminders to my daughters…who will ALWAYS be my Loves…to my precious grandchildren who fill my life immeasurably with joy and to special friends who are, indeed, my chosen family.  

Since my divorce in 1995…wow! THAT was a while back…I have not had the romantic Valentine experiences we see on TV and that’s OK!  But I do treat my self to special indulgence on this day.  Today, I greeted the world early, gave thanks to the Lord and headed straight to my coffee pot.  Today’s treat is a 16 oz. hazelnut cream decaf and a toasted English muffin with Nutella!  Yum!  Have you tried Nutella?  It’s a smooth blend of hazelnuts, milk and cocoa.

As I moved to my computer to check on the world’s happenings, it was as if my recently reacquainted bluebirds seized the opportunity to spread a bit of their joy early in the day.  “Hello, Love” I heard him say as he posed for my camera. “Thanks for the suet & berries, and enjoy your day!”

From my needle pointing days, my girls will chuckle to read:

A bell isn’t a bell until you ring it,
A song isn’t a song until you sing it.
And the love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay –
Love isn’t love
‘Til you give it away.

Thank you, Oscar Hammerstein and the “Sound of Music.”
