We jumped in our ancient blue Chevy and headed out. Once we arrived in the parking lot, she volunteered to run inside and grab her purchase. I waited in the car but kept an eye on the glass entrance. In about five minutes, she came out with her white plastic bag and climbed into the passenger seat.
"Did you find what you wanted?" I asked. She smiled and nodded. I was anxious to get home and start supper, so we took off. After we ate, she addressed her cards and crammed them in her backpack where she seemed to keep every book from school. I made sure she also put in the candy to pass out to her classmates for their party.
Many years have passed since that day. I've kept that little teddy on the night stand by my bed where I look at it each day. And I remember my daughter's smile that lit her face when I thanked her.
So my friends, I wish you a stress-free February 29 and leap year. I hope you discover something that makes you happy today no matter how small the gesture.
