Happy Valentine's Day!

I know the day is almost over, but I feel the need to share the story of what happened as we were coming home today.

We live on the second floor of a two-story quadruplex of apartments, facing the street. Our neighbors across the hall are a lovely young woman and her young daughter. Sometimes we talk, but not often; I think the young woman is a nurse, and she does everything for her daughter. They are the best neighbors we’ve ever had, really.

As we were walking up to go upstairs, the daughter leaned over the balcony. She sometimes talks to me this way; tonight, she called down, “Do you want me to give you one of these?”

I asked, “What is it?”

She rushed indoors, and as we ascended the stairs, she got up her courage and came outside, opening the door and offering me a Ring-Pop she’d received from a friend of hers. She was the spirit of adorableness, bouncing on her heels when I thanked her, and then darted back inside.
