Bad Apple

Recently my mom and I went to St James, Missouri to celebrate a family member’s birthday.  My great aunt lives alone in a small house with her cats. She loves food and shopping.  She often buys too much food.  Her refrigerator is packed with leftovers.  Each time we visit, she gives us something.  And this visit was no exception.

We saw caramel apples on her table.  She gave one to my mom and one for me. My mom saw something bubbling up from the top of the apples, but we didn’t say anything, and politely took them with us.  After we left, my mom tossed the apples away.  One week later, my great aunt started bombarding my mom with phone calls and messages saying she hoped I was okay after eating the rotten apple. She had discovered that all of the caramel apples were bad. She was worried if I was sick or in the hospital! 

Finally my mom called her back and told her that I was okay. My great aunt was so relieved.  People, who care about you, usually worry about you a lot.  That means they love you with all of their heart. I am very thankful for my aunt who cares about me. Every year on my birthday, she always sends me a birthday card, and that touches me.  I am so blessed to have such a thoughtful aunt. 

This is Life with Kyle and I will talk to you next week.
