Spreading Kindness...

Oh, not a Valentines goes by that I'm not reminded of the difference a kind, little note can make.
 I've watched my second graders all week, as they voluntarily give up a recess to joyfully fill each others bags with little notes of friendship. They themselves resisting a peek into their own. I'm reminded what a difference a few kind words can make as they each share their scribbled notes of "to" and "from".  It makes me grateful to be their teacher. It makes me thankful to have found such a caring group of bloggers/quilters as yourselves who spread kindness through quilting. (Stop by and check out our past CHARITY linky of Tuesday Archives to see what I mean.)

Here's hoping a little note of kindness finds it's way to you this Valentines.
And, heck, why wait? Buy yourself a box of Valentines and have a little fun yourself.
That's what I'm up to tonight. It's admittably, kinda fun!

  1. Your second graders sound so very sweet and I am quite sure with you as their teacher, Val, they learn about kindness every day in their classroom. Happy Valentine's.....enjoy those treats.

  2. That's sweet. I don't know that it is as big a thing here. I remember at our highschool you could buy someone a rose on Valentine's Day, but it was kind of embarrassing :) I completely forgot it was nearly Valentines Day until my son in year 1 reminded me when he hopped off of the bus today. He has spent the last hour or so making a letter or card for my husband and I. Apparently his class each made a valentines day card for someone in their families today, but my older kids did nothing valentines day related. And now my son in year 1 has just informed me that he is busy making everyone in our family a valentines day card, including our dog and our cat :)
