Wishing I was 10 years old again

I rarely get sick but when that happens, boy, oh! boy--I would promise to eat more veggies and drink lots of water. Beside being a mom of two girls, I can't afford to get sick.But as luck would have it--I wasn't well for two days. Staying in bed made me so emotional and longed for hot chicken soup, Skyflakes and Royal Tru Orange.

I don't know about you but when we were young,my siblings and I would get the privilege of having "the snack" not the banana cue but Skyflakes and Royal Tru-Orange, that's right! During our younger years those snacks were special because we were not allowed to drink softdrinks nor given money that easily to buy something. Of course, I couldn't able to finish the bottle nor enjoy it but having that softdrink when I was sick reminded me that an extra special attention was given. It was really a wonderful feeling.

I can't remember drinking lots of Royal Tru Orange but I guess what I have remembered most was my parents' loving hands, gently stroking my pain away.
