I've always loved Valentine's Day . . . and especially love the memories from elementary school, when our special grade school teachers planned our special activities . . . first and foremost, one of us somehow was selected to make the Valentine Box for the class. And, each of us would make our own Valentines at home . . . and we always made a Valentine for every one in the class. Then, on Valentine's Day, each of us would receive so many Valentines...I don't remember how the cards were handed out, but I remember that most of us sat in our seats and waited with anticipation to receive our cards. Somehow, one of two students must have been asked to help pass out the cards. Lots of lace and red cut out hearts. . . and sweet, simple messages. Time seemed slower then . . .
