These are for you

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

My date was with a four-year-old boy with some chicken nuggets.


I thought Valentine’s Day might be tough so I offered to babysit my niece and nephews. I didn't want to go out, and I'm not dating. So this act of kindness was a facade so I wouldn’t be alone.


What I couldn’t possibly anticipate was my nephew opening the door with flowers in his hands.


Or my aunt surprising me at lunch with a heart-shaped cake and card.


Or that I would cry because of how much love my family has for me.


These are the moments that really make life magical.
