Once upon a time a little girl would diligently write all her friends
names on her Valentine card envelopes the night before the big day.
The agonizing decision was to sign the card with her own name
or leave a mystery message.
Neatly packaged she would then tuck them in her school bag
and wait for the moment of the day when she could place them in her friends
personally made Valentine Box which sat neatly on their school desk.
There were giggles and fleeting glances as girls and boys
tried to guess who might place them in their box.
Once the mission was completed, children tucked the boxes under their arms
and made their way home to secretly open these little red and white gems.
If you were lucky, one may not be signed which would then send you
and your friends into squeals of delight while you tried to
determine who the lucky fellow might be.
Such lovely memories...
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!
