Yesterday the little decorative dish (on the pineapple saying) arrived…so Honey… I re-packaged it and sent it on to you. Your surcie is in transit! But before I re-sent it… I noticed the young girl (supplier) of this pineapple dish (Lisa’s Boutique) had put a card inside the box that said, “There is Always, Always Something to be Thankful for.”
Archibald Rutledge would call it a ‘life’s little extra.‘ Lisa didn’t have to do that…but she did. This speaks volumes for this young entrepreneur and I will definitely seek her out again when ordering more ‘surcies.’
The little card did make me stop and think about all the blessings I have in my life and how thankful I am for so many friends whose lives and mere presence have been a “life’s BIG extra” for me along my journey.
Take Friday for example…Rose at the Publix Customer Service is trying to reach me telepathically to pull me into the store for the commemorative Clemson cokes and is overjoyed when I show up unexpectedly.
Then, out of the blue, Stephanie calls Publix at 9:00 Friday night to see if they have some more for Tommy and when she discovers they do…she is off and running…with her mother Greta telling her to wait for her…then they can both get two cartons.
I mean ‘Really’...who does that kind of thing any more?….Stephanie and her mother Greta do…the “Determined Duo“- Y’all will always be superheroes in my eyes!
Then my neighbor, Jane and her friend Liz, decided to go to Krispy Kreme yesterday morning (St. Andrews) to get a box of the special “Solar Eclipse” donuts and called to say they would bring me some back…which in turn I planned to share with another neighbor, Vickie… to keep paying it forward!
Unfortunately they had an unsuccessful mission…by the time they got there they were out….but these two ladies don’t give up easily so they found out the time they would be ready todayand they are going to try it again….our own Lewis and Clark Expedition.
And of course…then there are all of you…who not only take time to read my little blog but converse and share thoughts and ideas.
***Speaking of…I have already gotten a few of your ‘Solar Eclipse’ memento photos and I am dying laughing. They are adorable…and some are downright hilarious! I don’t know where you found these things…but it appears that everyone is having just plain homespun ‘fun in the sun.”
Please keep those photos coming in…so we can have a cool collage tomorrow to remember this 99-year-spectacular event for the rest of our lives! *If you would get the pictures to me by 7:00 this evening…I would be most appreciative so I can get everyone’s added.
Remember to send your photo or idea to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Aren’t we blessed to be alive at this very moment? A miracle for all of us!
