“Mom, I need you to keep this ring and hide it!”
As my son handed me the gift bag with the ring in it, more emotions lept from my heart. I think on the inside I was screaming, “NO. You know I’m not that responsible. I can’t find things I use every day, much less hide something and find it a month later.” But on the outside once again, I was glad I got to be a part of such a special event.
But you have to know — this secret — it’s killing me.
While I secretly write here to capture the moment, I’m ready for the secret to be revealed. I’m tired of avoiding my boy’s girl for fear I’m going to blow the secret.
Are you a good secret keeper? You’ve probably guessed it, I’m not.

Don’t you just love all those awkward moments that happen while you’re trying to keep sweet, special secrets?
