Valentine's Day celebration

IMG_0210 The girls and I joined in to help with a party at a local senior center this past weekend. It was such a blessing to see the young kids helping by setting up, doing a talent show, serving food, and dancing with the seniors. The girls did a hip hop dance to one of their favorite Toby Mac songs "Unstoppable" and I was admittedly beaming because they really went for it (even though they were nervous) and got many cheers from the folks there. We enjoyed lunch, a talent show, jig saw puzzle competition, and the party ended with a hula lesson and dancing.  I was hopping around to capture images of the day and loved hearing so many different languages and meeting folks that truly blessed me and the girls.

The day started with visiting some folks that could not make it down to the party and I thought one of our names was very apropos.

You can see more portraits of the amazing folks there here.

Every time we "volunteer" our time I am consistently amazed at how God blesses US.  This day was one of those days for sure. Happy Valentine's Day to you and wishing you God's love and blessings every day.
