Love Language

Hi Sweet Friends

Happy Heart Day

I'm sure most of us have read
Gary Chapmans' Book
The 5 Love Languages

1. Acts Of Service
2. Gifts
3. Physical Touch
4. Quality Time
5. Words of Affirmation

Many years ago I read the book
And found my Love Language to be


I have, though, always been embarrassed of that gift
I feel like it makes me a 'materialistic' person
Yet, I personally don't think it has anything to do with that

I've read enough to know
That it really is just what makes us tic

Being a 'Gift' person
Doesn't just mean I like to 'get' gifts
It also means that I LOVE to Give Gifts

For the past two weeks I've been
Gathering the items needed to make my
Annual goodies for the staff
That work at the office I work in
I totally Love to make little Valentine gifts for the girls

Even the act of putting these together makes me happy
Creating the little tags and
Adding the goodies
IE: candy, confetti, sequins, etc
Gives me JOY

Friday I took these cute little bags of goodies
Into the office and gave one to each employee
I just love handing them out

What surprised me this year
Is that I never really even thought of getting anything
I usually don't get anything
This Year
I was surprised

I received a package on Thursday
From Kris
Who sent a wonderful bag of treats
And a great coloring book

Color Me Happy
I Say
Thank you KRIS

On Friday I received another package from Stephanie
She sent a sweet hand made Mug Rug
I didn't have one and LOVE this beautiful piece
I will enjoy using it daily

As I was preparing to leave the house Saturday morning
I heard a knock on the door
A friend from work stopped by to share
A couple of her beautiful roses with me
Thank you DIANNE

While babysitting my granddaughters on Saturday
My K~Bel gave me this totally cute
Ponies Valentine Card
I cannot remember the last time I got such a cute 'real'
Valentine Card
Thank you K~BEL

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Luke 6:38

I never decide to give so it will be given back
However, I am So very grateful that God has
Chosen to place people in my life
Who have blessed me so

May your Heart Day
Be Blessed
So You can be a Blessing to someone Else!!

  6. Cindy, I well remember reading that book decades ago-I used to think mine was gifts-but truly I think it is quality time with a little bit of words of affirmation thrown in. What lovely gifts you made and received from your coworkers. No doubt about it, you are an incredible friend! Sending love your way.

  7. Precious! I haven't been able to see your posts. I don't know why. This is so sweet. My gift is affirmation.
