Just a quick note to document what a great morning I've had.
I dropped Peter off at a play group run by a sassy woman in our ward (we often commiserate at church about how difficult it is to be so sassy and mischievous), who speaks Spanish for the entire 3 hours the kids are there. I love this sassy El Salvadorian woman.
Next up was my workout at the Rec Center. They let me in for free just because they all know me and like me. I didn't have to use one of Vic's punch passes. Thank you! That was so nice and it made me feel special. It's fun to be the only pregnant woman in the weight room.
After my workout, I made some quick stops at a few shops in search of a cute wreath for my front door. Anyone have suggestions or links to something? I was also on the hunt for cute Valentine's Day decor. I have none and have been wanting some for years. It's such a great little holiday and so close to my birthday. It seems only right to decorate.
Then I received a call telling me our new blinds (plantation shutters) have arrived and will be installed this weekend. Oh, I'm so excited. I have hope the new blinds will motivate us to get more house projects finished. It sent a burst of positive energy into my veins.
I then stopped at Great Harvest with the sole purpose of getting a free sample. The woman behind the counter was extremely friendly and sent me home with a free loaf of bread! (She must have felt sorry for the short, disheveled pregnant woman in workout clothes coming into the store asking for a free sample). How kind!
When I got in my car, George Michael was playing on the radio. This is where I proudly confess that I love him with all my heart and soul. Always have, always will. My love for his music runs mighty deep.
As I happily listened to Georgey and sang along, I thought of how many acts of kindness were bestowed upon me in the few short hours since I've been awake. I find it miraculous. What a powerful way to influence the world. This kindness will trickle down to Peter and Vic today, which will make them happy, and who knows how many more people Vic and Peter will be kind to because of my enabled kindness from friends and strangers.
What a lovely gift.
