Sweetest Thing #1:
A sweetest thing for my sweetest pre-schooler. "Mom, I don't have any clothes with hearts on them."
I can remedy that.
Raid the drawers and find a too-small-for-my-middle-child-slightly-stained-past-its-prime white shirt to get creative with.
The sweetest thing with a sweet shirt.
Sweetest Thing #2:
A dad's love for his daughters comes through with a bouquet of red tulips, a love note, and 4 truffles a piece for each one.
Dads, show your daughters your love for them every day. In word and deed. In small tokens of affection and words that build them up.
Time flies and they will soon be looking for someone to do the same for them outside your home.
Show them how its done well now.
Sweetest Thing #3:
I can text my sweetest thing throughout the day when my throat is on fire and it hurts to talk.
I can thank him for the flowers, the chocolate that won't last until 5pm and the note.
I can share our love for U2 and remember when I first heard this song in college. We made it our theme for a dorm dance held on Valentine's Day. That blind date is long gone but the song still brings smiles.
Significant others, thank those that take the time to bless you.
Even if it feel like there is sandpaper aflame in your throat.
You can always find a way.
Hey, Bono did. He made an "I'm Sorry" video without speaking. And he was really really sorry.
