It's the Thought that Counts

As the saying goes, "It's the thought that counts", and I am so grateful to those who took a moment and thought about providing a safe item for my daughter's Valentine box.  I know some people use that expression when a gift is not quite right, but in this case, they were perfect!

I belong to a playgroup, which I started a couple of years ago, with some great mommies, but I have since stepped down as Organizer and the group is now lead by a wonderful mommy, who is one of the most thoughtful people I know.  They made the Valentine's Party a peanut/nut-free event, and asked about any other accommodations that might be helpful.

I want to share with you some of the allergy-friendly Valentine's cards/gifts my daughter received in her bag. The thoughtfulness of these mommies is the most heartwarming Valentine's gift I could receive.

This treat was brought especially for Morgan! <3

She wanted to play with this for quite a while!

She loves those rubber erasers! She uses them as props for her many
imaginative adventures!
Morgan loves to draw and she loves to sharpen pencils. :)

She also loves bubbles!

What makes this even more sweet, to me, is that "Color My World"
happens to be our wedding song. :)  The card came with a multi-color crayon.

Morgan loves stickers, too!
These simple acts of kindness and thoughtfulness fill my well of hope and happiness.  Thank you to all who take the time to keep our children happy, safe and included.  It's all we could ever wish for on Valentine's Day or any day!
