With a "Big Girl" walking around here we get lots of questions. The one we got recently was "What is Love!?"
OMG, Hubs nearly fainted. I, on the other hand, love her curiosity and even though I get stumped on some, I like to just speak from the heart and tell her what I think. I always make sure to tell her, "Mommy thinks..."
So I just answered this question, again, from the heart. I told her stories about when I was younger and what I thought love was and I told her what I think it is now, after being married and having children. I also told her the story about when I saw my mommy and daddy holding hands and that it made me feel good because a friend of mine had just gone though a divorce and I felt sad and happy at the same time.
After hearing my stories she just sat there for a while.... I think, I hope it was good silence.
It made me think about Valentines Day, which is why she asked the question in the first place. But I have lots to do! We already did some crafts for my Little M's teachers and the grandparents, but I still need Hubs! Head on over to Beth's blog, Happily Domestic, to see my guest post and the craft I'm speaking of! I'm still thinking about it. I did get him part of his gift, but every year I make him a card.... he tears up every time! I love that. I have also done Shutterfly for other holidays last year and I love how you can personalize them. I gave my aunt a photo mug, also from Sutterfly, with a picture of her kids. She gave me a photo of them last summer and she said she loved it. So I gave her that mug because she's going for her doctorates and is always on the go, and she collects mugs! So I hope she's been using it!
Valentines Day for me mostly is just another day. I also see it as a day to Just LOVE! Just say thank you. Just hold the door for the clumsy mom. JUST LOVE!
What does Valentines Day mean for you?!
