When my dad sent this picture to me that he took of my beautiful mom with the
beautiful red roses he bought for her on Valentine's day I was reminded
of how, at that time every year, he would give my sisters and me a heart shaped box of
chocolates. I've been thinking about life and chocolates lately.
In our house caramels were top choice; anything else, except the dreaded jellies, was acceptable after that.
I remember one year I bought my husband a whole box of just caramels. Delightful, but admittedly, a little boring.
It seems life has had it's fair share of jellies lately; I keep wishing for caramels.
Today I am choosing to trust the One who's custom packaging my box
of candy and carefully placing it in a HEART shaped box as an
expression of His love for me. I just hope I don't try to take matters into my own hands and start pinching the candy.
