My sweet Lilybeth and Tristan made these lovely valentine cards at aunt Judy's house. The had so much fun making them.
My daughter Stephanie surprised me with this little purse. Wow, it was like having my birthday all over again.
This was quite a surprise for us as we came home. I can't thank God enough for my wonderful children; they are a blessing from the Lord.
A long time ago when I was in my mid-twenty's, a dear friend of mine shared with me the importance of teaching our children to be thoughtful givers (she had eight children at that time). It is so easy to quickly pick up "something" in the last minute just to give "something." Have you ever been the receiver of such a thoughtless gift? I have, but to my shame I have been the thoughtless giver many times in the past and it is meaningless on both ends.
