Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and all across America kids (and parents) have been busy working on making a Valentine for every single person in the class.
Back in the day, you only gave Valentine’s cards to the people you really liked. Schools caught on a while ago that no one should get left out on feeling the love, so now they send home a list of all the students in class to make sure that no one gets overlooked. These days, every kid gets a card with a sticker or candy or pencil or some handmade creation.
As much as I’m not a proponent of the whole everyone-should-get-a-trophy thing, I do believe in the everyone-should-feel-loved thing. So, since love is a prominent theme this week, I made a list so we make sure that everyone feels the love. (FYI: I didn’t come up with this list on my own. I just found God’s list and am sharing it with you.)
Which other people make your list of people who need your love? Share them in the comments!
