I had decided to make a Valentine tag for my neighbor, Becky:
She's a sweetheart! At the last minute, I decided to make a card for her 3-yr-old son, because he's home most of the time (preschool two half-days/wk) while his three older siblings are in school. I also tucked in a piece of chocolate.
It's hard to tell, but I made it a pop-out card.
Well, yesterday afternoon I walked down the driveway and put them in their mailbox. As I was coming back the 2nd grader was walking over with a vase of flowers in hand! I told him I had just put the cards in the mailbox and he went to get them.
Becky called to thank me for the gifts and was especially thrilled that I gave a card and candy to Shawn. He had a fever and couldn't go to his pre-school V'Day party, and was jealous that his brother had come home with all kinds of candy and he had none. So she said that I had made his day! (Thank you, Lord!) Becky also said that she gave the flowers as a thank you for letting her kids use my (long) driveway to get to the bus stop.
I was happier about the blessing I was than the flowers I received.
