A sweet hunt

I'm not very traditional about Mother's Day but I want to tell you about a tradition that's developing in our family.

A few years ago, my husband and youngest children brought home a bag of Hershey Kisses and proceeded to hide them around the house for me to find in the coming days. This year, my 18-year-old daughter decided this was a tradition worthy continuing. She's calling it the Kisses Scavenger Hunt.

So, I've found Kisses in my mug and on top my toothpaste tube. There was a Kiss in my box of tea bags and one in my slipper. I found a Kiss in my sock drawer and another in my pencil holder. I've had to laugh at how well my daughter knows my morning routine. Everywhere I turn, there's another Kiss.

Isn't it great to be known and loved? I'm probably going to get a chocolate buzz today as I uncover these little gems. (Well, you gotta eat them or they go bad, right?)

I want to keep my eyes open, too, because God has a sweet scavenger hunt going all the time. There are sweet kisses scattered throughout my day, left by my Father in heaven who knows me and loves me. Keep your eyes open, too!

"I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness....
Again you will take up your tambourines
and go out to dance with the joyful.

Jer 31:3-4
