Valentine's Day -- Early Celebrations and Art

Robin's Message of Love

(a very snowy day, and the robin shouldn't be
here, but he and his family felt it was
a vital message --love one another.)
Today was delightful and we had our family over
for a Valentine's brunch.  Steven made delicious
French toast, and bought bagels and deli sandwiches
in case some people didn't want French toast.  Of
course there were cards, hearts and chocolates, and
more than anything love that filled the air with
laughter and happiness.

Tonight I'm posting my current painting for
Valentine's Day.  I have cards already from other
years, but I love the tradition of creating a little
painting as part of the celebrations.  On this
the 12th Day of the month of love, I dedicate the
day to my family again.  They are a treat to be
with.  And I thank them.

Happy Valentine's Week to all of you.  I am a
total believer in the power of love.  Let's use that
power to celebrate together.

Have a loving-being-with-family day.

You and your family are so blessed. As busy as you all are, hearing about your day was a joy.
I believe your robin was on a mission for missing his flight south.
During breakfast last week I noticed a charm of goldfinches, then hundreds of robins in the back yard, be-bopping around for their breakfast...then came the wild turkeys and the deer. There's a rhythm to nature that's soothing to the soul.

Thank you so much Marilyn,

We are blessed. The best thing of all is that we all love one another, and
that makes it such a pleasure to get together. I love your work, and
your descriptions of the birds and animals visiting your back yard.
How wonderful. Yes there is a rhythm to nature and you say it so
beautifully. It is soothing to the soul.
