This post is about human nature and the training of young children to be giving and caring. One evening last week before Valentines Day four very excited little girls rang our doorbell and gave us a delightful, Valentine's box ful of delicious home baking and fresh fruit. This was a joint effort, part of a Children's ministry from the Pioneer Clubs of two local Baptist Churches. The box was decorated with stickers and Valentine cards. The little girl that had decorated it was with the group of girls and she very proudly accepted praise of her lovely work from my husband.
As you can see above the contents were varied . molasses cookies, banana bread and other sweet breads, biscuits and rolls, and muffins , andheart shaped cookies and some valentine candies
The box was full of baked goods and in the bottom of the box was fresh fruit.!
The little girls were thanked and they received our appreciation gracefully. What a wonderful undertaking for these young kids( pre-teen, elementary school age to be involved in! And how heart warming it was for us being recipients of such a wonderful Valentine gift.
