Last week with the Valentine frenzy building up at school (candy, cupcakes, pizza, takis- you name it, they bring it- even though, officially, we have no Valentine parties), a student asked me what I was doing on Valentines Day. “Oh, not much,” I replied. I really thought the answer was “nothing, nothing at all.”
But on Valentines Day, I got a text from a friend asking if I wanted to meet for coffee after school. I did. She showed up with a gift bag. I was surprised! She said I know some days can be melancholy when you are alone. We had a good time sipping our lattes and chatting.
Then Sunday night while watching the Elvis special, I enjoyed my gift- a rose scented candle. It was perfect while enjoying the Yolanda Adams and
Carrie Underwood gospel music segment of the program.
I am blessed to have such a good friend.
