Happy Belated Valentines...

I'd planned on writing sooner, but things don't always work out the way we plan. I did however manage to send my "Valentines" their Valentines on time. For some wonderful, unknown reason, this year, I was really overcome with a desire to spread the love.., I planned early enough so that I would have time to make all the sweet things I needed to, that I hoped would convey my love in the best way I know how..., HOME MADE (baked sweet things - gluten free of course, cards, and little dolls holding hearts with special heartfelt messages.)
To say I enjoyed myself is a huge understatement. As I sewed the little doll bodies, and made the heart shaped cookies, my thoughts dwelt on the special people in my life, and I understood what a gift it is to have people to love, and for them to be able to receive this huge, unpredictable, sometimes inarticulate, awkward, heart of mine.

So, Happy Valentines to all of you, even if you didn't receive a card, cookie or doll.
