Valentines Day πŸ’”πŸ’” Broken Hearts

I have always viewed Valentines Day as a holiday for kids. It could be that as a child I loved the sugar cookies with pink icing, the conversation heart candy, the pink and red colors, or the shape of hearts everywhere. It could be that as a former preschool teacher for 15 + years I spent most Valentine celebrations with my classroom kids or my own children. 

I’m not much of a romantic and I would prefer to receive gifts ( not necessarily chocolate or roses) under social threats from advertising. I have seen some desperate men on Valentines Day walking up and down the aisles of a store they normally wouldn’t shop at looking for something– anything!

What I do understand about Valentines Day is that if you have lost a loved one – a brother – mother – husband – father – friend , the constant reminder about love and loved ones only causes stabbing pains to your heart.❀ 

Even though I don’t teach anymore, my children are grown, and my childhood family members have all passed I can still celebrate Valentines Day. I can place one of my  memorial crosses on their grave, or write a journal entry of a memory with them.  Please remember to forgive others who  gush to you about their Valentine plans or gifts without remembering your loss, broken hearts can’t be seen only felt.πŸ’Œ

From grief came inspiration..... I created these crosses out of frustration years ago when trying to find something to decorate family graves. Stores only had grave decorations available around Memorial Day and everything was costly and impersonal. I enjoy creating these crosses and I am happy to personalize a cross for your loved one. My crosses are made with recycled materials & packaging is simple and recycled.
