Happy Hearts

Congratulations to Pricilla- winner of a copy of WINGS OF LIGHT. This book won the cover contest for its genre and now is up for the 2011 Best Cover contest. Click here to vote!The day where all the little girls in elementary school want their hair a little extra special. The day when even the boys are donning their red shirts.

In fact, it might be the only holiday where kids intentionally reach out to every single person in their class.

And if you're all grown up, you know, say fourteen, there's the excitement of watching your friends get carnations, or getting heart Valentine's from friends.

As the years pass, married with kids- the magic never really stops. As long as you still want it, it's there for the taking.

Valentine's Day is a chance to reach out- just like you did in elementary school. A chance to say "Will you be my Valentine?" Sometimes that just means "friend".

And for your real sweetheart- don't let the day slip by without a smile, hug and kiss.

If there's one thing we need more of in this world today, it's happy hearts. Hoping you have a happy heart today, from the bottom of mine.

My husband and I said that to each other last night, "Be my valentine." And "You'll always be my sweetheart." Silly things we don't usually say, but thing I think we should say more.

Happy Valentines!
