day 177: hearts and chairs and pepperoni

Two parties in two weeks.  If you haven't experienced a happy exhaustion any time recently, I highly recommend it.  

We had pizza and pink heart cakes.  We decorated white bags with stickers and stamps.  We passed out our goodies. 

Then we played musical chairs and how MUCH I wish I had a video of my technicians dancing around with the kids while I manned the CD player.  One of the boys laughed so hard at them that I seriously was crying just watching him.  It was so amazingly joyous.  I can't even come close to explaining it.

I love to love.  It feels good to care about people.  I am not afraid of it.  I am not ever going to choke it down or hide from it.  It is God-given and God-expected.  And I get more of it than I have ever given.

You are a very loving person. It shows in your countenance, it's expressed in your words and actions. It was great fun today. I need to work on my dance moves!

Sounds like a wonderful week! I'm so glad you shared this with us. It's funny that your comments about love struck a chord with me, so to speak. I need to be less afraid of loving--it's so easy to squish up into myself after I've been hurt sometimes. Thanks for the reminder! Love you! ;)
