I read a valentine story a few years ago online or in a magazine but I can't find it, so I'll write from what I remember.

One year a little boy in elementary school spent a lot of time making homemade valentines for all of his class. He glued the lace and cut the colored construction paper into hearts. He wrote each of the names neatly. At the Valentines Day Party, he put each of the cards into the boxes where the other kid's v-day cards were full. He came home to his mom with a huge smile on his face. He showed his mom his one single V-day card. It wasn't from any of his classmates. It was from his teacher. The one she gave to everyone of her students. The boy's mother started to cry because her son was so full of joy over one single valentine when he had given out ones to everyone.

silly me

Thought of the day: waking thoughts make me laugh!

I woke up this morning and thought, wait its light out what time is it? I went to look at my alarm clock and it was dark. The power was out so I reached for my cell phone. It was 8:11 Yikes! I had really slept in. I got up quick and went out to see mom. I asked her what are we going to do. She told me Lauren there isn't any school because of the power being out. Silly me I didn't even think of that! It got really cold so we are at our grandpa's house hanging out. I've been trying to get some reading done. Have a good day!

Thought of the day: God wants us to trust Him with EVERYTHING!

I've been dealing with a situation. I don't feel like writing the details for the whole world to know but I've learned some things that I think we all learn through things. I really had been praying and asking God to give me guidance in how to address this situation. Sometimes I felt like I wanted to take control and get angry and upset, but God had other ideas. Instead his solution was to be calm and trust that He would work through this for His glory.

I went for a run today. My lungs hurt from all the air. Its been some time since I've gone running last but it was a great day for it. I went running around Orwell since there are sidewalks and places to run. March is when track starts so I'm just trying to get a head start. Well shortish post got to go start reading before I get really behind.
