Whether it is you and your Super Hero celebrating this day together, or if you are showing your appreciation for others, I hope your days holds lots of sweetness.
If it doesn’t, here is a great recipe – rated two thumbs up by in-house experts, Jack and George:
- Heat up a cup of milk.
- Add a packet of hot cocoa mix of choice.
- Top with whipped topping.
- Garnish with left over sprinkles or bits of chocolate from your pantry.
If you happen to dilly-dally a bit too long, arguing that you do not want to finish your supper because you are “too full”, then see what your brother is getting and decide to get a move-on…well, you might just miss out on the whipped topping. In such a case, adding extra bit of chocolate to your hot cocoa and sprinkles on top will work as well. FYI: the chocolate of the xoxo variety tends to not melt unless stirred; it also sinks. This can mean another yummy surprise at the end, just when you thought your were done.
Personally, I like to think I am more of a smooth dark chocolate with a hint of almond flavor. How about you?
On a more serious note, in case no one has had the opportunity yet to tell you, let me just say:
You are appreciated, loved, a friend, and a welcome addition to my life. You have a purpose, and are a blessing to those around you.
If you are not feeling this way, I encourage you to look for someone to help today, someone to smile at, someone to spend some time having a conversation with. If you are not sure where to start, might I suggest the cashier at the local grocery store or someone at the nursing home. Simple actions can mean a lot in the lives of someone else.
If you are in a lonelier place please give these people a call. They are there to help, not judge. There is animosity in these calls, yet they connect you with others who truly care about you. Unsure of what to ask or talk about, here are a few questions to get you started. It may feel strange to take that first step, to ask for help, but it is a good path to start back traveling. You are worth it!
