During the recent ice and snow, I came to realize how important time is with our family. We are all so busy with work, extracurricular activities, non-stop ringing cell phones, and computers that we forget to cherish the important small things in life. Over the last four days being snowed in at home with my four children, undertaking a simple project understandably gets multiplied. Each child had a set of Valentine cards to make out and it is the first year my 6 year old daughter actually writes the names herself. I was watching all the kids tear apart the cards and research their list of classmate names to write on each card. The twin boys were all into the temporary tattoos and stickers that came with their cards and arguing over who was and was not in their class. Then I glanced over at my little girl and saw that she was patiently squishing the lengthy name of a student almost off the edges of the card. I secretly smiled wishing that person knew how much determination she had put into that little card. Later, that evening she came to me and had me close my eyes and hold out my hands. When I opened my eyes she had made out a Valentine card for me. She said that it was the “bestest one out of the bunch”!
