Quite an appropriate theme for the month, but we take it a step further to include these ideas: One might look beyond the traditional valentine to all those we love and cherish. Of course, this could include Valentines, tags, gift bags, etc. It could also encompass friendships, ideals, pets, anything we love/cherish. This could also include new/creative ways we interact with our friends/ loved ones during the pandemic!
I have chosen to celebrate/remember my grandfather and the way he could interact with such calm, quiet, peaceful ways. He was a man of few words, but he could 'still the waters' with his demeanor. It seemed like he could walk into a barn or pasture and the animals would look to him for his reassurance and their behavior would mirror his.
I saw this wonderful digi at Bugaboo and decided I wanted a wall hanging for my tack room to remind me of my grandpa and his quiet wisdom. I'm sure my pastures will never be as peace-filled as his, but I surely can strive for that and remember his loving ways!
Now, if any of my family is reading this, they will tell you I have left out a very important detail. Grandpa could bring peace and calm to every matter except those that concerned Grandma! No, no one could do that! ;)
