Valentines Afternoon Tea – Cinderford
When people mention Valentines, we often have hearts, beautiful roses, and delicious boxes of chocolates come to the forefront of our mind. Whilst they are all wonderful, we at Happy Turtles believe that it is an opportunity to teach and demonstrate what true love is. We talk to the children about kindness, service, putting others needs before your own and thinking of those that might not be receiving the physical gifts.
At Cinderford, on Valentines Day, we got to share one of our favourite days with you and as always, you gave back tenfold. We are so lucky to work with such kind and generous families. As we observed the children playing with and sharing food with, their chosen guest, we experienced first-hand the love you feel for them. As we listened in on some of the conversations, it softened our hearts to hear ‘I love you’ and ‘this is lovely just the two of us’, as well as ‘can I share yours please’ and ‘you’re my favourite’.
We witnessed cuddles and kisses, play that was focused on each other and a genuine feeling of love.
So thank you! Thank you for giving up your time and joining us. Thank you for showing your love in the donations that you made! Thank you for being role models to the children about the real way to show love. Thank you for trusting us to love your children almost as much as you do. Because we do!
Happy Valentines from Happy Turtles!
