This story didn’t actually take place on Valentine’s Day but it is appropriate to tell on Valentine’s Day.
How far would you go for someone you love? When our first born child was a toddler, something made of glass fell to the floor. One of us quickly picked the barefoot boy up off of the floor before he could step on the broken glass. Then the work began. After much sweeping and vacuuming, my wife and I had an uneasy feeling. I opted for a technical solution. I got a flashlight, turned off the lights, and used the flashlight to find more glass.
But was it enough? I wasn’t satisfied. I took one look at those cute little bare feet of his and I immediately knew what I had to do. I took off my socks and shoes and walked around with my bare feet until I found all of the remaining tiny glass fragments. After I removed the glass from my feet (the red dots made the fragments easy to locate), my son was set free to safely run around until bedtime. Happy Valentine’s Day, son!
