Learning to grow
Is learning to accept missing classes.
The universe turns green,
Flower buds reveal transitions
By reporting the season’s gain.
When kids go back to schools,
Prepare for new growth.
Collect your garden tools,
Plant a patch of living rose.
When things don’t look cool,
Or nothing seems new,
Carry faith for time and place,
Face the world with godly grace.
Hello, how are YOU?
Love is universal feelings, Valentine’s Day is within two weeks, I have a question for YOU::
What kind of valentine gift do you prefer to get from your spouse, or friend of opposite sex?
Flowers, Candy, Watch,… I won’t know until you tell…_________________.
Happy Monday! Thank YOU all for the lovely visits and contributions, 😉 😉 😉

Love any gift that you know the other thought about…a scarf in my favorite color, renting a movie we’ve enjoyed together in the past, a book I’ve mentioned wanting to read…anything that signifies they really know me and what I enjoy. Ah, an invitation to a poetry reading at a local coffee house…hubby is not a fan of poetry so I would know that he was going just for me. 🙂
how rich your options are, I admire your gifts from your beloved other half…
I am happy if you are happy,
I smile if you smile,
loved your beautiful comment.
I know that in his heart are special feelings for me and i’m happy with this only.I think that is the best gift ever 🙂
If he tells me just:I love you and he looks into my eyes then i’m the most happy girl in the world.
Have a nice day!
I agree with you, true love is priceless, nothing else matter, with authentic passion being held, you can live your life and get through thin and thick together, still happily…
Nice to see you smile when it comes to your love, 😉 😉
Lovely options Jingle 🙂
Thanks a lot, Pamela, 😉
A simple sentence of 3 words from heart…..I love You
Take the Gift Personality Test and have fun.
Thank you for the reply, I. L. U is key, 😉
Anything given by him with love. 😛
Yes, anything given by him is okay, you are cool,
what if he gives you nothing but a hug, are you satisfied? 😉
We don’t buy each other gifts for Valentines just a card with words that say how we feel. 🙂
Great option, it saves and promotes pure emotional communications, I love your way of doing it, 😉
Nice poem. The more I read the better I feel. You guys are good I don’t know if I can keep up. The gift I’d rather receive is anything with sincerity.
To my significant one..
If you could wrap yourself up in a gift box..
Then you will be
and the only
valentine gift I want.
Wow, he is the only thing that matters, nothing more, as long as he is with you smiling and caring, you are loved..
Awesome way of expecting love, you will never get disappointed on Valentine’s day, cheers, 😉
This winter has been so white, I would love a flower. Maybe even a potted one that would bloom into Spring. 🙂
Yes, a single rose costs a dollar or two in America, it is fresh and lovely, I would like that too.
love needs to be refreshed and nurtured some times.
Have A Great Day, 😉
fun post. no school today, but i had to work. blah.
valentines….time is my most precious gift.
Brian, you want time alone so that you do what you want to do, cool. I will be happy if I am give the time to be alone when I need it, 😉
afternoon Ji, when I was a wee boy lol, I loved being off school because either the heating was broken or the snow stopped staff getting in so I can relate to the kids being “happy” lovely post, xx have a “blogtastic February day”
Thank U for sharing your choll experiences with us,
You have a FUN day ahead, 😉
love the new look of your site 🙂
Thank U, Jessie,
When I was younger and in school I wanted to be the girl who got the flowers. One year I did and it was so neat. Now I just want to have a nice dinner at home with my family. I mean it is a day of love which I do every day.
Yes, school girls prefer fresh flowers to gain pride or look cool, when you are married, having a nice dinner is more appealing, I agree and wishing your dreams coming true this time..
A perfect Valentine gift would be
to know you think the very thought of me.
But f it had to be a tangible sign,
Let your thoughts of me translate to a personal credit line!
your way of thinking is kind of romantic or exciting,
you want it to be personal and cool, I can imagine how lovely it is that way, 😉
lovely photo of snow, please enjoy it:
Thats a nice poem. Thats how it goes.
What is a perfect gift…I loooove chocolates and being treated special…
hope you have a lovely day
You are very honest and nice, hope that you get what you want, does your husband read blogs?
As always Jingle, this is beautiful.
The gift I love to get has to be a card more than a gift, I love to read what he feels, it’s more personal than me getting jewelery, I am able to open the card years later, and smile at how he felt that year 😉
Have a great week Jingle!
I am happy to see you , a family of 8, wow, how great!
Love of WORDS are more precious than materials, of course, a card that is filled with love can last for good, beautiful option for you, best wishes, 🙂
I don’t want flowers or chocolates or even a card. I would like a nice letter, just telling me that he loves me. And I’m that easy to please 🙂
Yes, you want loving letter that reveals how much you mean to him…cute love, it is priceless but costs nothing at all, 😉
What a cool poem you have written! I am smiling! I love to spend time with “special” people. I feel that is the best gift ever! Have a fun week now! 🙂
Spending time with special people is cool because the gift is the joy and memories you obtained,
what an amazing love gift, 😉
I love your style, 😉
i really like this poem, jingle! it’s lovely and dear. and as far as my favorite gift goes…i like a note or poem best, i think, and a smile. oh and i love it when he (whomever he is) tickles my back softly until i fall asleep. that would be lovely.
have a great week! we had snow and school is closed – again tomorrow, too! – so your poem was extra meaningful to me!! 🙂
Hello, R L Burns:
I am pleased to tell you that my kids have gone back to school this week, they have been at home 3.5 days, it is a relief when they finally begin to learn …
you like a poem plus his soft hands on your back, that’s cute and creative love, I can see you smile and fall asleep with the love right next to you, lots of giggles, 😉 😉
“Face the world with Godly grace”. Very beautiful poem. For Valentine’s Day, I would just like to see my husband have a day off that will really enjoy and can forget about his job for a little bit. To see that would make me happy.
Yes, relaxing and resting will be a lovely gift for you and for many, we need to make money to make the ends meet, but sometimes we enjoy breaks so that we spend time refreshing our body and soul..
wishing your dreams coming true, 😉
The best gift my husband can give me for Valentine’s Day is his time.
time is precious to U, Jeanne.
great love gift, 😉
those were absolutely lovely lines. Great! Keep it going!
