This year, however, was different since Chloe was able to show she knew exactly what the word generous means. You see, I was feeling a bit under the weather and had to beg off after visiting the very first house. “Cindi,” I said, turning to my daughter. “I’m cold and really need to get home and in bed.” Although she was clearly disappointed, she gave me a hug and sent me on my way.
Later, in bed, I sent Cindi a text, “How did Chloe do?”
“Chloe did well. She gave most of her candy away. She’s so generous!” she responded.
Chloe’s just like her mother, I thought, as I pulled the covers around me and turned out the light.
