Edward Bear says, "Hello! Happy Valentine's Day!" I am up early this Monday morning and I am thinking about all the teddy bears and chocolate (flowers, too!) that will be carried to school tomorrow. We are going to the computer lab, so it won't be hard to patrol the teddy bear brigade. "Put it in your locker, please."
Even though we have encouraged our own children to carry their childhood stuff to their own homes, we still have a basement full of bears.
I hope you receive some pretty blooms instead. I am dreaming of garden flowers more than purchased flowers.
Have a little chocolate AND some strawberries.
Today I am going to read the students a lovely book titled Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch. Have you read it? It's a feel good story that addresses paying attention to people. Oh, I love THAT, don't you? Maybe if we paid more attention to each other, people wouldn't do such weird things to GET attention. What do you think?
My Valentine is now in Australia and I don't feel like eating sweets. I think I will eat more pink grapefruit. I have been peeling them and marveling at the juicy pink sections, gobbling them up!
Pass around warm hugs and true encouraging words. That will make the people in your orb feel cared for. (BIG HUG and focused attention coming your way this Valentine's Day!)
