Oh, the utter joy and the mystery of what is in the chocolate box.
I was the lucky recipient of this gift from a supplier today, wrapped in pretty shiny paper and a ribbon – the tell-tale shape of the assorted chocolates box! A gift that I do enjoy. It’s chocolate (and good chocolate to boot!) More so, it was unexpected.
What I really hadn’t planned on receiving or enjoying…. was the childhood abandon, the joy, the anticipation, the smiles and laughter as my kids pointed and picked out what they would try.
“Oh, a mint!” “Yay, it’s caramel!” “Ooh, is that one strawberry?”
Do you remember your first box of chocolates?
I hope you do and I hope that it made you as happy as this gift made me today.
This is real. Even as it was a little mystery of what was under the milk or dark chocolate. Christmas – wrapped in a ribbon with bright, shiny children, laughing…it was perfect.
