When they take a song I love & add it to the soundtrack of yet another crappy Nicholas Sparks movie…
Every Sunday night for me. Or sometimes Monday morning on the Torture Cycle.
Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week…what great stuff do you have to share with us today?
I AM HAPPY for wonderful people out there in the world, who—even though they work with the public & see a lot of faces pass by—still go out of their way to do nice things for total strangers.
Case in point: Two weeks ago, I did a lot of running around; I mean, every day I had at least one place to be, sometimes more. And of course, as long as I was out & about, I did a wee bit of shopping. Well, just last week, I returned to one of those stores, & as soon as I approached the counter, the clerk reached down & pulled up a bag of items marked “SOLD—Customer Left Behind by Accident.” Holy cow! That was me; I was the Customer & those were my things I’d left behind by accident. I had no idea I’d walked away without my purchases, although I admit that when I got home & didn’t unpack them, I did half-heartedly wonder where they were. But I just thought I’d left them in the car or something!
But this lady was so nice to rescue & hang on to them for me, even though she could have simply put everything back on the shelves after 24 hours or so. There was certainly no way to track me down; if I hadn’t walked in there again & she hadn’t recognized me, it would have been… :smile2 I gave her a signed book as a thank-you, & it turns out she loves to read—especially romance—so I’m thinking that it all may have been meant to be.
I AM HAPPY, too, for my new EveryDrop Water Filter. I’ve wanted one since I first started seeing the commercials, but it took me forever to actually find one. It’s making it so much easier to refill the ice pitcher I keep in the mini-fridge upstairs & to give Miss Precious fresh, clean water on a regular basis without having to run down to the kitchen. (Especially since it usually takes me about six trips down & up again before I actually remember that’s what I went down for in the first place. )
And you guys know how much I HATE styrofoam, right? It is evil incarnate, creating poisons when it’s manufactured & never, ever biodegrading so that its poisons go into the ground & drinking water when it’s thrown away. What do you think causes cancer & tons of other health issues people think they’re just “unlucky” enough to get? Evil, I tell you! Anyway, I ended up with a styrofoam cooler I wasn’t the least bit happy about having, but I AM HAPPY that I’ve just learned I can hand it off to the Hundred Cat Foundation to be turned into winter housing for outdoor/feral cat colonies. My first choice, of course, would be that styrofoam didn’t exist at all, but since it does at least it can be reused for good rather than simply being thrown away.
So how about you, My Darlings? What kind of week did you have & what kinds of blessings do you want to take a moment to be thankful for?
