I have the sniffles, I have a cold, but I promised my daughter and her two children we would venture out for a couple of hours to shop at Walmart. As I drove back from work, the wind was blowing and snow was twirling. I was thinking of the lack of sleep I got the night before and I realized that more than anything I wanted to have some fun.
So we had Valentine fun! We picked out pretty red polish and looked at pink and red flowers. We let the babies choose heart shaped balloons, and pink frosted, sprinkled cookies. We put coloring books, crayons,and stickers in the cart. Red juice and freshly ground coffee went in too.
As we drove home, I thought some vapo-rub and something warm to eat would be a nice ending. But having them ask me to color with them and getting hugs and big kisses gave my heart a warmer feeling all filled with love. That was the best ending.
