It’s that time of year for Conversation Hearts. I’ve always loved picking out the little phrases and giving them to someone else. Not necessarily to eat, but more as a “just saying”. 🙂
Personally you wouldn’t catch me dead eating one. I’m a chocolate girl all the way! Hint! Hint! 😉 They remind me of Tums. Except with cute little terms of endearment stamped across them
Sometimes I wish we all had little boxes of conversation hearts we could carry around with us each day.
See someone pick up a dropped item and return it to someone else. Hand them an “AWESOME”! 🙂 See someone who’s obviously alone in life. Give them a “BE MINE”. See someone who’s fallen down literally or figuratively. Offer them an “”A KISS FOR YOU” for their boo boo whether it’s a scraped knee or broken heart.
Many of the students I work with are nonverbal. They do not have the power of the spoken word at their command. To them I’d offer conversation hearts all day long! Except they are three and they don’t yet read. Many have learned to use visual pictures to express their wants and needs in place of the spoken word. I want to make them all visual pictures that can be their conversation hearts. I♡U. Thumbs up! 🙂
I want to use them to encourage not just offer commands.
The spoken word is indeed powerful. It can make or break a situation. Let’s all use our words purposefully. Let’s make not break others. Let’s edify. Encourage. Love with our words. Let’s keep them sweet as candy. Just saying. 🙂
I want to leave you today by reaching into my little box of conversation hearts and give one to each of you from the bottom of my heart..
I ♡ YOU
Thank you for reading. ♡
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Love and laughter,
