I think I inherited the "sweet" craving gene too. :) I had to smile at your son checking for sweets when he visits, as soon as the hug is over. :) The memory of Allison's 5th grade essay, that you always bake her something chocolate is soooo precious. Our Bible study last evening was on the manna in Exodus 16. It falls in line so completely with your message of feeding on the riches of the Bible. (they needed to gather the manna every morning). Thank you for the encouragement here.
This is a lovely devotion. I remember with my first child I was determined that she not even know what sweets were. It worked until her Grandma took her to McDonalds and bought her her first french fries and orange pop!

I did notice in the second paragraph that you switched from the past tense to the present and then back again.

This story made me smile as I read it and left me longing for a chance to be the Grandma instead of the enforcer. Your message tied in with your story quite nicely.
