After a few
stressful intense days at work (Tax Time. Whoda thought?) yesterday was a very welcome respite. Wanna know why?
Dad bought something to entertain the entire office.
Yeah, it’ll be hard for all of us to use at once (Snort!) but we’ve learned to share.
Actually, Dad bought it for my little buddy to ride, and I think Dad was more excited about it than my buddy was. At least at first. The truth is, he didn’t know what to think. Wasn’t really sure what to do with it. But he didn’t walk away. 🙂
We enticed him closer.
It wasn’t long before the little guy was riding the trike like he was born riding one. (His mama’s probably happy he wasn’t. Ouch.)
Pretty soon, he was hanging off it and riding like a pro. Even offered to take me for a ride on the back step plate. 🙂
That would have been a great day all by itself, but there was more.
I walked down the street to Celebrations, my favorite flower shop in the world! As I walked, someone beeped a horn at me. I jumped and looked to see a sweet blond headed girl grinning at me. Naturally, I had to tell her that beeping at old ladies like that could make us fall down dead on the sidewalk.
That made her laugh.
It’s a real thrill to hear this child laugh. In fact, I’m privileged to know this girl.
In her young life, she’s been through brain tumors and surgeries and check ups and pain and the loss of an infant brother. She practically a baby herself, but she’s a spiritual heavy weight. She knows Jesus, walks with Him, and helps people around her get to know Him. One Sunday, I watched her baptize one of her friends into Christ.
If this girl started a parade, I’d beat the bass drum!
Oh, and she hugged me. 🙂 That made my day!
I toddled on to Celebrations. Not only do they create gorgeous arrangements, sometimes it seems as if it’s a kind of gathering place for women here in C-Town. This week, the women working there have been busy, busy, busy getting ready for the prom. They rent tuxedos there (the only place in town) and most of the kiddos order their corsages there.
Since the C-Town prom is tomorrow, most of the ‘Bration crew was on hand, making wrist corsages and handing out tuxes. Kids were going in and out, getting ready for the big night. I had so much fun, I wanted to just stay and watch and enjoy.
Ever notice how much fun something is when you aren’t directly involved?
AND I also got a new app for my iPhone. Snapchat. Like I mentioned on Twitter, I’m not sure what it’s about, not sure how to use it and I only have one friend on there, but I had a great time with it today. The niece with Snapchat and another niece and their friend all went to get mani/pedis. (I was invited, but I had to work. 😦 ) I sent my senior niece pics of her car, getting new windshield wipers. (And me wearing her sunglasses. And the guy replacing her wipers.)
She sent me a pic of the girls. And her NEW sunglasses. LOL.
So! Much! Fun!
In case I didn’t mention it, yesterday was great in our Small Town World!
