Mark Your Calendar for February 15th!

Yes, Friday is February 15th! You ask why you should mark your calender for this day? Because it is the day after Valentine's Day. Of course you realize this is obvious, so why does this matter? Because . . . it is the day all the heart-shaped candies go on clearance!!!! If you haven't already, make plans to head for your local store first thing and pick up some to have on hand for special surprises from grandma! Just think of all the things you could do with heart-shaped candies . . . if you have them . . .

  • you can give them to your grandchildren as a special treat all year long, (of course the giving of a heart shaped candy would necessitate it is accompanied with hugs and kisses, too!) :^) <3 and since you bought them on on February 15th, you were able to get them at clearance prices!!!! (I love the word "sale" and "clearance" is an even more "lovable" word!!!) :^)
  • you can give them to your grandchildren when they have something special and wonderful happen in their lives (again, accompanied, of course, with hugs and kisses!) :^)
  • you can give them to your grandchildren when they have something sad or difficult happen in their lives (once again, with hugs and kisses!) :^)
  • you can provide them for your grandchildren to add to crafts or baked goods which they are giving to shut-ins or elderly neighbors or to people who need their day brightened as a special, extra "touch"!
  • you can use them a "prop" when you talk with your grandchildren about God's love and how "sweet" it is! :^)
  • of course, you could keep them on your desk or counter as a way to brighten the day of all who enter your home . . . this is if you can manage to keep from eating them yourself! :^)
So, what are you waiting for? Mark your calendars!!! Underline February 15th! Circle it! Draw a few hearts on this date and plan to head for your local stores and buy heart-shaped candies!!!! :^)
