Red heart shape wrapped in crinkly clear cellophane

A sweet, kid-drawn heartfelt note of gratitude attached

Hints of chocolate wafting from inside the heart

Look away, look away, be strong

Calling, oh so calling to my weakness for creamy chocolate goodness

Why, oh why did I pick now to start a better eating lifestyle 

Well maybe, just maybe a little cheat won’t hurt

Challenging days do need to be rewarded, right?

Surely, I can make up for it tomorrow.


  1. I can relate to this on so many levels. I love sweets and I SWEAR they call my name! If I am in the vicinity of something sweet, I have to have it right then! Thanks for sharing this story!
