The start of this week found me in bed for twenty-four hours with two sick kiddos by my side and a husband on his way to Montreal.  The virus was so very un-kind.

But Laura wrote a sweet post on Wednesday on acts of kindness which pulled me up from my depths of puking despair and I found myself in receipt of such acts of kindness from all around.

♥ A colleague who, for no apparent reason, felt the need to come up mid-day and tell me how much I meant to her.

♥ Two valentines, complete with surprise gift cards,  arriving in the mailbox for my two recovering kids to distract and inspire them. Thank you D.

I am determined to find ways to do something this weekend to reciprocate on these sweet acts as Laura suggested.  I will also be making some Valentines with my crafty Court.

We have decided on a version of these

pirate valentines and photo from mer mag

Court would like to make them bigger...

and the felt eye-patches removable, to be worn by the recipient...

and I think that might actually be possible.
