Last week I helped take care of two of my grandchildren who had to miss their school due to illness. I knew the chances were that I would catch it too, but was still glad to give them a warm comfy place while they were not feeling well.
Sure enough I now have the same thing. I would still do it again. But i received and unexpected reward this morning when, there was the pounding of small footsteps on my porch. Brooke arrived before school carrying a lovely potted tulip and a card thanking me for taking care of her last week and sending get well messages. She had embellished the card with drawings and sweet messages.
I'm so thankful to have these sweet little persons in my life. I helps me to smile between coughing spells.
