Planting Seeds of Love

Me: "What's this?"

K: "A present."

Me: "It is? Is it for me?"

K: "Uh-huh."

Me: "Why, thank you, K. That's awfully sweet of you. Should I open it?"

K: "Uh-huh."

Me: "Okay."

(peels the scotch tape off of the kleenex that has been carefull rolled up)

Me: "Oh my gosh, K. These look a little bit like seeds. Is that what they are? Seeds?"

K: "Uh-huh."

Me: "They sort of look like apple seeds. Are they apple seeds?"

K: "Uh-huh. You said the other day that you ate an apple and I know you like apples 'cuz you said you ate an apple. So I ate an apple and saved the seeds for you." (big, toothless smile)

Me: "Oh, K! That is so nice of you! I think I'll plant them and see if an apple tree grows!" Thank you for thinking of me. You are too sweet!"

K: "You're welcome."

That is so sweet! Those are my favorite kinds of gifts because they come from the place where people are REALLY authentically thinking of you...and that just makes the heart warm.

I hope they grow...oh, maybe they already have?
