but February is close enough
to make me want
White lace doilies
And maybe some stickers!
I am not really sure…
(besides that pink is my favorite color!)
But hearts seem to cut out so simply
Long skinny ones
Chubby round ones
And Valentines don’t have to be just romantic
Greeting cards for a relative
A note from a dear friend
pink construction paper
given with a grin,
and sticky candy!
What is nicer than to spend a little time
making something fun
with words of love
February in my childhood always meant
and notes from everyone!
As a Mommy
I have many fond memories of parties
at friends’ homes
with a dozen squealing toddlers!
As a wife
I have enjoyed countless vases of flowers
cards and notes.
As an American
I feel blessed that we have a holiday devoted to letting those around us know
So for this February
I’m planning to find the construction paper
make a memory!
Because love is far more than romance,
and kind words never go out of style,
did I mention
pink is my favorite color?
