Given the opportunity to volunteer in a community event, I build friendships and memories that last a lifetime. I honor and appreciate those events, friendships, memories. Yesterday was one of those days. I’m still smiling!
Gratitude embraces me…. I invite everyone to jump in!
On my way to place a dinner delivery order, I learned that the restaurant I chose doesn’t deliver from that location. So, rather than sulk or give up (not in my nature), I found another restaurant that has the same food, delivery, and friendly employees. Problem solved and a new restaurant discovered.
As I made my way back home, I saw a sandwich board sign outside a newly painted villa. Written on the sign in colorful chalk were the specials. I went in and discovered a lovely, quaint, clean and happy place. Serving food, tea, coffee in a relaxing environment made me happy. I ordered a Masala tea to go and it was great.
I love new finds and sharing them. Search and you will find fun.
After focusing on sending my wonderful mom and mom-in -law flowers, notes, emails, video messages and Facebook messages, I felt accomplished and complete. I rather forgot that there are two people in the world to celebrate me.
On the 11th of May, twenty years after I became a mother, I received texts, emails, Facebook messages, candles and a lovely card to celebrate yours truly. What a gift: my daughters!!
I am blessed, grateful and fortunate beyond words. My heart is overflowing and my world is full.
To me, every day is mother’s day. I love being a mom and having only two people in the entire world call me “mom.”
