“Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”-Robert Heinlein
I was planning on writing a post today about what I've been up to the past week or so, since my last post. I will fill you in briefly, but now, in just the last few minutes, my direction has changed a bit.
Rebecca, from Walnut & Vine, left me a comment suggesting I check out another blog, called Blondie'N'SC. I was intrigued, and clicked on the link. I was so moved by her post, her words were emotional, honest, and from the heart. I related to so much of what she wrote about, it brought me to tears.
So first, I want to thank Rebecca, and I want to suggest you check out both of these wonderful blogs. There are so many amazing women out there in this world, I am constantly thrilled and surprised by them.
This past week and half, I have had such a tremendous load off my mind since the trial, but also the burden of trying to make up for another huge cut to my income. A couple friends paid me to make cupcakes for them, I took a small order for Valentine Candy bars from an old friend from high school, and I even worked at buying gold this past weekend with a friend. None of it has proven to be super lucrative, but every extra dollar or two helps. I also got my taxes done earlier than I ever have, and the small return coming will definitely help.
I love being creative, so the candy bars fill my creative soul more than my pocket book. Valentine's day has kind of snuck up on me, so here I am at the last minute making up inexpensive little care packages for my sweet nieces and daughter. I love the idea of them getting a mail delivery with little surprises from me, letting them know I am thinking of them.
|Thank you Traci, hope your kiddos have fun handing them out!|
This coming weekend, I wish you a Valentine's Day filled with love, whether it be from your husband, boyfriend, children, parents, or friends...just sweet, simple LOVE.
Happy Thoughts and Warm Hearts,
