Love & Legacy

We’re already on Day 2 of Valentine’s Week. You’d think I was counting down to my own birthday or something. It’s not like there’s cake at the end of this countdown. Geesh. I shouldn’t be so excited. But I ammmm!

I was surrounded by love today at my church’s Mom group. Those are such strong women. And I always love getting together with them.

We had a speaker today (who is a mentor at my table AND reads this blog) who shared her story about how her sweet, loving husband unexpectedly passed away last year on Valentine’s Day.

Although the pain of what she and her family went through (and still is going through), she is honoring her husband’s legacy by sharing how she’s grown from the heartache, in God’s love.

What a poignant lesson to hear, on a day so close to Valentine’s Day and his Heaven Anniversary. And what a lovely reminder to always love those who are important to us. To SHOW them love.

Thank you, E, for sharing your difficult journey with us. I know it’s hard. It isn’t all for naught. Part of God’s purpose in your journey is helping us young wives and mothers remember to take the time to show our love, in all our incessant busyness. Blessings to you!

Here is Valentine’s Week Lunchbox #2:

Valentine Kebab Preschool Lunch

I made a PB&J sandwich kebab for Bigs! I used my small Valentine’s Day cutters to make various heart shapes and then stuck them on a kebab stick. I also put in carrot sticks and an applesauce squeezy fruit. And for dessert, a smaller kebab made from two tiny pink wafer cookies flanking a cupcake shaped marshmallow. I think he’ll like this one.

Have a blessed Tuesday!
