The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Twas the night of Halloween, and all through the night, I laid in my bed, staring at the street light…

{rhyming: done} …where was I? So, my little sister, Emily had gone to a Halloween party in the cities – I invited her to crash at my place “for fun” – but really the Mister in me {Mom+Sister} didn’t want her driving home so late…

In the wee hours of the morning, she arrived, covered in glitter, body paint, and other bedazzlements and I forced her to shower before hopping into my bed. She chatted on about the party, as I drifted off to sleep. The next morning, we ate pumpkin bars for breakfast {see recipe below!} and then she headed home. I hopped in the shower, and within minutes was greeted by these words: I {heart} U JEN!

This sweet message is invisible as I stumble into the bathroom each morning, my hair wild and my eyes squinty. But as the steam fills the air, it faithfully and magically appears! I know it is simple and may not seem like much…but when I am in the midst of a crazy morning, this message continues to stop me, and remind me not only that I’m truly cared for, but also to remember it doesn’t take much to make someone’s day.

Thanks Em, for the gift that keeps on giving! šŸ™‚
