show love to the forgotten

in honor of my favorite month, it's important to show love to everyone, but especially those who are perhaps a little forgotten. when i was a school teacher, i always made friends with the custodians. i did this for one of two reasons, one, i liked getting to know everyone i worked with, and two, it's amazing how many wonderful perks you get as a teacher when you are buds with the custodian. {like the year that i kept barfing b/c i was pregnant with my little J, and i would puke in a little garbage can right outside my classroom door. he would empty it for me hourly...now that's love people!} i feel that there are some thankless jobs out there done by real people with real hearts. most of these jobs the world could not function without. we decided to bake some cookies {and tromp up my long snowy driveway} to give to J's bus driver. i'm pretty sure it made him feel real good...

I haven't been to your blog for a while, but I came looking for your "bigger blogger photos" link. ;)

THIS idea is so cute. You make me want to be a better person. I hope you are okay with me peeking in once in a while!

thanks!
