What's Inside My February Folder

These months fly right by, don't they? It is time to pull out my February folder and see what is inside. Here is my February folder...

and here is what is inside...

The first thing inside is the February poem I hang on the kitchen bulletin board. This month's poem is called "Snowflake Kisses".

Snowflake Kisses

Upon the earth the snow kisses
Glittering flakes drop as the ice glistens
My soul has awaken and now my heart listens
In my mind your voice whispers
When I close my eyes at night I dream of you
When I awake to the morning dew I think of you
Somehow I feel in your arms is where I belong
I've waited for someone like you for so long
Now my heart beats with a happy rhyme
Couldn't have asked for a better Valentine
Angela M. Torrence
Then I have the handwritten list of things to do this month.

1. Check supplies for holidays
