During the recent Arctic Blast, God sent this hyacinth to lift my spirit. Its pink petals and fragrance filled my house with the hope of springtime.
I soon got cabin fever being stuck inside during the snow, but passed the time by making valentine cards. Mama shared some memories from her childhood.
When she attended Ogden School during the 1930's, they made valentine cards in class. Mama enjoyed cutting hearts from construction paper and glued a pretty tea cup on her card.
Mrs. Lucy Hyatt, Mama's teacher, placed a box in the classroom. The students decorated it and put their cards into the box.
On Valentine's Day, the children had a party and exchanged cards. Sometimes dancers and musicians from the John C. Campbell Folk School would give a program at Ogden School. Mama loved the performance.
Valentine's Day is a time to let special people know you love them. I cherish my blogger friends and wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day!
