#SoCS Feb. 11, 2023 – Heart

Linda’s SoCS prompt…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “heart.” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

An apt one, Linda, since that heart day is creeping upon us all.

Yes, it’s commercialised, but you can hardly ignore it as the shops are interspersed with red and pink merchandise.

Cards, chocolates, fluffy toys, and silly/cute/sexy gifts that you would probably never use.

But, then again, sometimes it’s good to remind yourself of those you love and to show them a little appreciation.

Sure, it should be a daily thing, but let’s be honest. In the craziness that is life, it is easy to forget sometimes.

Just as it is easy to forget to love yourself, too.

So when heart day arrives, on Tuesday, along with anything you decide to gift to your loved one, remember that you need a reminder from yourself too.

As an aside, I got my first valentine in school yesterday. A cute little bag of sweets and a note from our head.

And in the afternoon, I received a special present from one of my pupils amidst a sea of notes from others with hearts on them for me. (I promise, I wasn’t talking about hearts, but it was Dress to Express Day – a part of Children’s Mental Health Week – and all the children were being extremely expressive!) He urged me to open it but not to show the others.

It said, “I love yuo,” (as spelt by my 5-year-old pupil).

I melted just a little.

What a way to end the term!
