Project: Pocket Love Notes
Show someone in your life how much you love them with these very special love notes. This is a great tradition to start on Valentine's Day, but it can be continued throughout the year.
Give just one card or bundle a whole collection together to make someone smile. Hide them in a jacket pocket, backpack, or lunch box. Or, leave a stack in a pretty dish on the bathroom counter. Let the kids choose one after brushing their teeth, just before bed. Place them by the front door to give to visitors or to kids on their way out the door to school.
1. Fold the index cards or small slips of paper in half.
2. Inside write, "I love you because…"
3. Fold your message in half and seal it with a heart sticker.
4. Decorate the outside of your secret message using colored markers or potato prints.
What a precious way to show you care! Happy Valentines Day.
You're nothing short of my everything.
Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness.
In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.
Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
To love someone is to see a miracle invisible to others.
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
And when love speaks, the voice of all the gods makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
One makes mistakes; that is life. But it is never a mistake to have loved.
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.
