Buttons of Love

Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you!!! I could not think of a better post for today than “Buttons of Love”. Those of you who have been kind enough to hang around “Stuff” for a while know all too well the story of my friend, Michelle. If you are new??? Then here is a portion of her story. Michelle’s five year old spent an afternoon with me this week….and while we watched “Frozen”, she sat in the floor sorting craft buttons. She also informed me that her mama’s favorite color is green.

    • Paula, I still have the red button you sent to me from Michelle’s Memorial Service. It hangs right next to one of my heart necklaces to remind me of your good friend. Days whiz by and I forget to be grateful for each day I am granted. Valentines Day brings thoughts of people we have loved and are now missing from our lives. It’s also a good day to give some extra hugs to friends and loved ones we are blessed to have near us.
      Sending you a hug from Arizona…the day after Valentines Day.
