...and this felt gift bag, also $2 from Home Goods...
...and look at some of the Valentines my daughter and I made...there were 46 total...
...which we then put in a basket and delivered to the elderly people in the rehabilitation center of Hope Village in Canby.
And let me tell you...it was really time-consuming to make the cards...and even harder because it was a really rough week for me physically (due to my endometriosis)...but I got my reward when I saw those beautiful, wrinkled faces light up at the sight of my two smiling little girls, handing them homemade Valentines. I almost burst into tears once I got to the car. I was so proud of my girls and what a good job they did, and my heart was so full because I really felt that we had seriously blessed some people.
Inside the card, I'd handwritten the following message:
"Happy Valentine's Day! God loves you. Love, the Goodwin family"
It's true for you, too, my friend. Consider yourself hugged today!
