My Heart Has Been Touched

This morning, as I do many mornings, I started my day with a cup of coffee, sat down to the computer and enjoyed my quiet time catching up on some of my favorite blogs.

I have been busy the past few days. Some big events are coming up at the winery. It has been a treat to have a nice relaxed day. Today, I didn't have to go anywhere. So, I have taken some extra time to visit.

I even got to enjoy an extra cup of tea.

A birthday gift from Miss Sarah

I have a confession. I'm not sure why, I am just not excited about Valentines Day.

I appreciate the creativity many share. I recognize and appreciate the talent.  I do not remember if I have ever celebrated Valentines Day. Maybe when my girls were home. I'd have to ask.  It's not that I dislike the notion behind the day.  It's more that I try to share with my love ones on a daily basis.  I devour relationship books.  My belief is that I have as much responsibility now to my daughters, as I did when they were younger.    How are young couples to know how to build a relationship, if they do not have role models in their lives.  I want to be my girls and their boys role model in developing a strong and lasting relationship.  It is not an easy journey.  It takes work, something I remind them of as often as I can. 

  I am currently re-reading


I will be passing them on to my girls once I have finished with my copies.  It does my heart good when they share with me that the boys have also read the books I have shared.

I do have one Valentine themed item.

I liked the tin.

I had planned on making candies and filling it as a gift for one of my nieces.
I ran out of time. So it sits on an unfinished shelf in my almost finished kitchen.

This morning, my heart was touched. The tears started and they were beyond control.  Bella Della Farm shared with us her wonderful creation. A beautiful heart and she  introduced me to  Dear Daisy Cottage. Gather up your tissues, make yourself a cup a tea and drop in for a visit .  I think I'll be making a few hearts.

 A heart tugging story.



  1. Mum- have you lost your marbles? Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream for breakfast on valentine's day. Most depressing day of the year to wake up to puffed rice cereal for breakfast now.

  2. Just popping in to say 'howdy' from a fellow farmer/crafter chick! Have a super Friday...I'm off to peek around your blog. Kim

  3. You mean my creepy Valentine's didn't touch your heart? I'll have to work harder on that one. What is your Love Language? Mine is gift giving.....I liked that book alot. Your blog is so lovely Laurie!

  4. Another great read is Receiving Love. I have read many books in this department and our counselor recommended this one as well. It's a huge eye opener to your (and the hubs') souls.
