That often just means that someone must clean up spilled milk.
Or accidents may have enormous consequences like they do in
“The Man Who Stretched Valentine’s Day.”
In this book a simple unsigned valentine card put in the wrong
mailbox changed an old man’s life
and the life of all those in his village.
The story reminds us that expressions of love have great power
even if the “I Love You” comes to the wrong address.

The author, Walter Huffman, has a passion to spread love and kindness to others through his writing. It certainly seems like our world today needs as much love and care as possible! He originally wrote The Man Who Stretched Valentine’s Day as a children’s sermon and after finding the writing in an old memories box, converted it into this wonderful story.
Once upon our time
in a town like our own
a man lived all alone.
Oh, there were people all around him,
where he worked and lived.
But this old man had no friends or family
and was very lonely.
Then one Valentine’s Day something happened
that changed his life
and the life of his little country.
HE RECEIVED A VALENTINE’S CARD!
Actually, the whole thing was a very big mistake.
