Little Loves!

Happy Early Love Day!

I remember, when I was younger, my dad would bring home flower, a card and cash for my mom every Valentine day. Then he would go to his car and come back out with a teddy bear and a rose for me and my older sister. He’ll never understand how much we appreciated it. It made us feel so loved and it’s something i’ll never forget. I don’t even think he understood what that little $7.00 bear did for our self-esteem and self-worth.  His little thoughts of kindness not only showed us how much he loved us, but how a true man was supposed to treat a lady. He never missed a Valentine Day. Now that i’m married, I know that I want my husband to carry on this tradition with our little girl one day.

Now, I know that there are a lot of women and men that never had anyone show them that kind of love or really care about them like that, and I pray that you will meet someone one day who will love you with all their heart. Until then, remember that you have someone who died for you and loves you very much. His greatest gift was His son. You are very much loved.

I decided to do this shoot with some of my favorite little kids. I borrowed my two nieces and my Godchild since I don’t have kids YET (don’t worry dad, they’re coming). I had a lot of fun with these precious little girls and wanted to show them how precious, beautiful and loved they are. If you have a little girl, remember to remind her that she is perfect and loved.

I pray this Valentine day is a good one for you and that no matter where you find yourself, you are content and happy.

Love you all…Mean it!

    Funmi, Few people realize how important the little things are to children. We are all special to God and how we are treated by adults when we are children determines how we see ourselves and often determines how we see God. It is obvious you experienced much love and many blessings growing up because you are such a beautiful soul. Your children will be blessed as you impart what you have learned.

      You are so correct. Children need that good example of a Godly father here on earth first so they can know how good their heavenly Father is. I’m blessed to have had that. Thank you for the comment and love.
