As I was standing by the take-out window during a lull at the Bar-B-Que today, I was thinking about Valentine’s Day…which lead me to think about those little bitty candy hearts that have the cute little sayings on them…You know the ones...they say; ‘kiss me’ or ‘hug me’ or ‘love’ or such.
Danny use to give me just one each Valentine’s Day with a box of chocolate candy and a card. Usually the one he gave me would say ‘love’ or ‘kiss me’ …and I too would give him one with his gift…a heart felt reminder of the times when we were young and gave each other a whole box of them…and thought we were doing something grand! lol
As I stood there with all our Valentine Day memories running through my head, I took my finger and gently wrote “Danny” in the fog on the window….
Soon, a customer came up, which forced me out of my melancholy mood … Work…it is one of the best things there is for the blues, isn’t it?
When I came home just now, I stopped at the chest by the front door to grab the mail that Dan places there for me to look at. Thankfully there were no bills…for a change…but there was one envelope with my name on it. When I opened it up, imagine my surprise when I saw that it was a BEAUTIFUL VALENTINE !!!!!
That it came today … of all days…only proves to me that yes indeed… “there are angels among us.”
GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS SWEET TIFFANY…YOU PUT A SMILE ON THIS OLD LADY’S FACE TONIGHT AND I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR KINDNESS.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
