Musings From A Musical Mind

No Chocolate?

Yesterday Greg (wanting to make Valentine’s Day a perfect day) took me to See’s Candy Shop at Kent Station to get my favorite chocolate – the butterscotch square.  We arrived and stood in a LONG line – and I quickly glanced around and nervously listened in on conversations the others were having with the sales people behind the glass case.  And what I was hearing was horrifying!  They were actually “selling out” of many kinds of chocolates due to the “rush” for men from our area buying the PERFECT box of chocolate for their sweetie.  Well it’s amazing what happens when you have your heart set on a certain kind – and then slowly find out that it’s GONE!  I guess I’m not the only one who likes that kind.  It’s pretty wonderful – and next to the chocolate caramel bar at “Harry and David” – there is simply nothing like it.  So I quickly had to change my mind and choose something else – but my heart wasn’t in it.  No toffee nut crunch or mocha creme would make up for the lack of the butterscotch squares.  And what was worse – I did actually choose something really similar to it – and they only had it in dark chocolate.  I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate – so I was a most unhappy camper.  I smiled sweetly and decided to accept my fate – going home without my favorite – even though I had chosen a few others that were close – but not near close enough – and the nice lady put them in the bag for us – added up our total and then when Greg was paying her – she opened her secret little stash of “samples” in a drawer next to the cash register and in it was a “butterscotch square”!  She put one in the bag and smiled at me – and she became my “new” best friend ☺Now was that important?  You may even say it’s silly and unnecessary.  But it was important to me – and her kindness made my day.

This reminds me of God’s love for me.  Something may be very disappointing to me – oh it’s pretty small – like the chocolate – but it does not seem small to me – and God who sees and hears everything and is familiar with my hurting heart – brings something or someone in my life journey to encourage or to say just the right thing to me.  A reminder that He knows me.  He loves me.  He cares for me – even the hurts and slights from others.  He knows about even the smallest rejection and feels my pain and somehow – in some wonderful way that only He can – He surprises me with a sweet gift – a kiss of love – a much needed hug for a weary traveler – from my loving heavenly father.  To encourage me.  And lift my spirits. So incredibly sweet.  Like a butterscotch square. ♥

God Bless

  1. Sometimes it’s one of those days…nothing is going right. And then I get a little “surprise”; a nice letter or an uplifting or funny blog post to read, a friends calls me out of the blue.

    Those are like my little gold-wrapped chocolates from God!:)

  2. You don’t like DARK chocolate?? What’s up with that? Hmmmm…I would have picked you for a dark chocolate gal. Oh well. That just leaves more for me. I LOVE dark chocolate…but I’m not a creme-filled kind of guy. Give me nuts!

    • You have some interesting misconceptions about me Ron 🙂 I also LOVE nuts – haven’t met one I didn’t love – especially cashews and pistachios 🙂

    That’s a great blog post Cindy!! He does care about every aspect of our lives!! Even the ones we think of as small and insignificant! Thanks for reminding us! Unlike you I love dark chocolate!! Have you seen the new Reese’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups? Heavenly!!

    • I haven’t seen them Ken – but since I’m not a real fan of dark chocolate – I’m not sure I would appreciate them as much as you ♥ Thanks for your comment – I really appreciate it ♥

  4. Lovely post and yes, a butterscotch square at that moment is really like God’s love – a simple reminder of the sweetness.
