Got the Message

You know those little things - those series of tiny, seemingly insignificant little things - that happen to make your day simply great? The first song I heard this morning was Carole King singing "You've Got a Friend". (Great start to the day). Then I got a cheery "have a great day" from the window clerk at the Tim Hortons drive through - and she smiled so wide that I knew she really meant it.

Later in the day I received some glowing, sweet emails about the slideshow I did for Nana's birthday. Heartwarming.

As I was coming out of work today, apparently deep in thought, a funny looking little character on a bicycle with pizza boxes and a backpack on his lap, called out to me with, "Smile Miss! It's going home time". He had a big toothy grin and I couldn't help but smile back at him.

And to top it all off, when I got into my car and turned the radio to the satellite "Bridge"  channel, they were playing a (sappy) John Denver tune. How great is that?? (Am I hearing a collective groan out there?)

So you see - I had lots of messengers today - and thankfully - I got the message!

  1. I'm glad you received the message, loud and clear, and had a fabulous day!

    Just read your earlier post - very moving, and it made me suddenly think in a slightly different direction about Alzheimers...
