Would you believe? Well, it’s so much better than what is going on in the rest of the Good Ol’ USA!
I’m really not complaining. I don’t do much of that, thank heavens.
I love when the day’s happenings are kind of “impromptu,” don’t you? That’s what happened today.
I knew I had to get more litter for my “babies,” and it was getting real close to lunchtime. A change of scenery is also most welcomed. I called (guess who?) sis again, and, as she was available, we went on our merry way!
First stop was to Petsmart, of course.
Litter (and some extra food) was loaded into car and next stop: PIZZA!
Our favorite Italian restaurant, of course. And we talked and talked and laughed and laughed. That’s what sisters do, right?
The moral of this short story is: if you have the fortune to have a sister whom you love, and loves you back, spend as much time as you can, enjoying each other!
This first day of 2014 didn’t seem to be one I would enjoy. The days have been cloudy and not much sun lately. I felt destined to push through the heaviness, get the day over with, and hope the next would be better. There wasn’t the brightness to my spirits I was hoping for to “start the year on the right foot.”
Then, I got a phone call. My son called early and wished me a happy New Year. His voice was strong; his demeanor upbeat. It took me out of my doldrums immediately. It’s amazing what a phone call can do – a good one.
I got another call. My sister called to wish me a happy New Year. We have a great rapport and we banter back and forth and get silly and laugh a lot.
While the Rose Bowl parade was making noise in the background, I took a look at my emails.
Got on to Suzie81’s Blog. How?? I was immediately taken in by her current blog post found at http://suzie81.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/successes-and-mistakes-blogging-in-2013/ in which Suzie covers, at length, her take on what she considers her successes and mistakes in the short time she’s been blogging. Her advice is a rare gem. Take a look.
I believe, when someone starts a blog, there isn’t the thought in mind that what we write about is going to affect readers one way or another. I didn’t think that but, yesterday, I was told that I may have inspired someone in particular to start “journaling” again. If that isn’t a happiness happening, I don’t know what else could compare at that moment.
So far, it isn’t a half-bad day after all!
