Love is born through the giving of kindness.
(Inderjeet Singh Rajpal)
Over the last few years, leaving crocheted hearts all around has become a thing I do often..
The pattern I use is one designed by @queen_babs that she posted on Instagram.
They are so easy to make and have come in handy in so many ways over the years.
For Valentine's Day, @sweet_sharna on Instagram was encouraging everyone to spread some love by leaving handmade hearts out and about so I left one this morning by the Kuwait Towers.
The towers just happen to be on my way to the hospital where I volunteer on Thursdays in the pediatric playroom. I left a jar of hearts there to spread a little love to all the patients.
And tonight, while waiting for my husband to have a CT scan, I crocheted 11 hearts and gave 8 away.
One nurse told me I had a good heart, that's why I was able to give away my good work.
Another nurse told me she was giving the heart to her daughter because she is the love of her life.
I also gave hearts to a patient and a porter. And to my husband's doctor who said he was going to give it to his 14 year old daughter. The funny thing is that, we had to see him twice this evening and in between those times, he had gone to another floor where he was given chocolate, so he gave that person the first heart. That little gift of love was being spread all over the place. I gave him two more before we left. The nurse that works with him promptly put her heart on her keychain.
You always gain by giving love.
These lovely little hearts were given out at our last craft meeting by one of our very sweet and talented members.
And this one was gifted to me by another dear friend.
Sending wishes your way for a happy, love-filled day!
