Belated happy Galentine’s/Valentines’s Day

A belated happy Galentine’s day to all of you poetic, noble land mermaids. As Leslie Knope would say, it’s the best day of the year. I’ve been hosting large Galentine’s day celebrations with my girlfriends for the last nine years. Due to the pandemic we changed things up this time. Instead of meeting at a restaurant we had a very small gathering in a private home.  after a year of self- isolation, it felt like a small miracle to be indoors with other humans. We wore masks, sat six feet apart, and enjoyed our first inside hang-out time since last March.

The next day, our pastor at church had a sermon on making beauty and he cut out a heart from a piece of red construction paper. He said it was a silly little illustration  meant to inspire us to love others by making them beautiful things. That afternoon I got out my scissors and made this simple little valentine card.

Dear readers, wherever you are in the world today, I’m wishing you love and beauty.
