Today I had an interesting day. It started out pretty normal, making fresh juice and coffee.
Hubby has been working on his car, his baby, for the past couple of weeks. From what he is talking about, I expect it will act like a brand new car and drive incredibly well and be fast. Of course, it was fast before, and there are claw marks in the dash from me trying to drag my feet, but that is another story.
Hubby went to the shop to work on his car and I proceeded to pack some more boxes and go about my day. I did manage to get a few more things packed and realized I am very close to being done. A great feeling for me.
But, what is interesting for me today is the scope of things and people I have talked with today, either on phone, or via Skype or via Facebook. It was a day that, when it is over, you go, “hmm, what a good time I have had today.”
I had someone talk to me about some issues pressing in on them. Minor things, but, nevertheless, even minor things can weigh heavy on hearts. I was blessed that they thought of me to talk with. I am hoping I, in turn, blessed them.
A friend of mine became a grandparent for the first time. I am so happy for her and we somehow ended up not fully connecting, but I was able to let her know how thrilled I am for her. I know this child will be so loved by this woman. This child will learn much from my friend, she will learn to laugh, to explore, and to love. This child is so fortunate to be able to call my friend grandma.
Another friend just needed to vent. I love our venting conversations. They are honest and full of opinions and laughter and tears. We talk for long times together, it just works out that way, and even though this conversation was filled with the frustration of the past couple of days, I hung up feeling better in just hearing her voice.
I was able to see Little Man and Little Miss via Skype today. They make my heart glad. I love my conversations with Little Man and when he tells me to have a good rest of the day and tells me he loves me, well, that’s the best thing in the entire world for me.
By this time, it was evening, actually night-time. I answered a couple of more messages and thought over the day.
Throughout this day I also thought of my sister and her family. Tomorrow marks the anniversary of my brother in law’s death. She mentioned on Facebook tonight about how she feels about the day today and tomorrow. I admire her in so many ways. I shed tears in thinking of all she has gone through and yet, she remains the encourager and strength for her family and me.
Days filled like today are few. So often we go about our days not noticing the life that surrounds us. I do that often. Today, lives touched mine. My heart is full as I write this, and my mind is filled with memories. I just had to share that.
Thanks for stopping by…. DAF
