Giving Heart

She parcels out Halloween candy. A piece for everyone she will see that day. She doesn't eat alone of her bounty.

She bring me from her Sunday school Christmas gift. Knowing I've eaten several pieces of fudge, I politely refuse. Her eyes drop. I explain. I ask, Does it hurt your heart when Mommy doesn't want to eat candy you have brought her? She shakes her head. Confirmation. (Perhaps my belly will understand that and won't gather more sugar unto itself.)

I enjoy gifts. I enjoy giving and receiving gifts. But she. . .
She speaks her heart in gifts.
She receives our love in gifts.
Just to know she is thought of.
