“Forty for me and forty for you,” said the Jumping Bean.
I took a deep breathe and smiled. “I said 15 of each kind,” I replied back.
“I did 10 of each kind for both of us, Mom.”
I did what any mom would do, we loaded them up in our backpacks and headed off to the airport to visit our super-awesome family.
I was sure there was no way we would leave eighty Stop. Breathe. Smile. magnets between Baltimore and Kansas City. Do you know what? Between my stealthiness and the Jumping Bean’s trust in other people, we did it!
If you found a Stop. Breathe. Smile magnet on a chair, in a restroom, on a table, or stuck a trash can–I did it. When blonde child came up to you and asked you to take a magnet or sat one on your suitcase–The Jumping Bean did it.
Thank you for your willingness to receive small tokens of gratitude and love and, of course, for your smiles. You are all in our pockets.
