Then mid day something happens to shift your whole outlook.
I had a busy morning and some internal grumpiness and frumpiness lurking inside my heart and mind. I went to bible study and felt at least momentarily released from the focus of my crankiness. Back in the car I was headed to home with brief stop at friend's house to pick up something "little" she had for me. I figured it was some long lost book I'd lent her...
Instead she handed me a small cardboard box and stated-"it's not jewelry".
Inside surrounded by tissue paper was housed my cupcake perfume dispenser.
I cried, I hugged, I told her "thank you" and "I'm so lucky to have you" and " I love you"- not because of this little ceramic cupcake but because she cared, she wanted to help me remember my childhood and what true/simple joy is like. Also I was changed. My day had changed just from this simple act of friendship that arrived in my day.
Life is good! I am thankful! I am lucky to be me -surrounded throughout life with friends and family who care and bring me happiness and love.
