Last year I blogged about a funny-little-thing-called-love & it holds true for me.
Advice given to me years ago was to speak to your children & family in the same way that you would speak to friends - if you would not put down, speak or shout at your friends, then it is not acceptable to do it to your nearest & dearest!
That is a sobering thought & it hinges on respect - respect for yourself & respect for others around you.
Respect must be practised daily in families until it is the accepted way of behaving - for me that is the best display of love - doing things out of love & respect, all the time, not just one day of the year.
A massive bunch of red roses or the largest box of chocolates will not make a person feel loved & valued if it is not reflected in your everyday manner ...
I love changing things in my home & my heart decorations are things we like & have at home so I collected them together as a symbol of love.
The large heart shaped wreath is one I bought at a local craft fair & love the pinks; it is teamed with 2 strands of Gisela Graham heart bunting & my wooden hearts that are often on the fireplace
It is looking a bit more cheerful - I really love our sideboard x
Do you observe Valentine's Day? What do you do? I will be thankful for the enduring love of my fabulous Hubby & family - I hope I never take them for granted x
Tell all, thanks for stopping by, always lovely to read your feedback & return the visit.
