Oooh look at me... blogging two nights in a row.
I feel wild now.
I forgot to tell you about the cool thing that happened yesterday. Every morning I stop at the Tim Horton's drive thru to get a large steeped tea to take to the office. The woman in the box that takes my order recognizes me by my order and will comment that I'm early that day or running behind and better hurry. They notice if I've missed a day and will comment on it. Very sweet ladies. Often I will pay for the person behind me because it makes me feel so good to bless someone else.
Yesterday I was driving up to the drive thru lane and I saw a woman waiting to get in line but the car in front of me wouldn't let her in even though she was there first. I held back and gestured for her to go ahead of me and she waved and waved at me. So I waved and waved back because I'm all about making friends wherever I am. When it was my turn I placed my order and when I got to the window they told me that the lady ahead of me had paid for my tea.
What a sweet blessing to start my week.
Julie's final dance class was tonight and we all went to watch the class perform what they've learned. At one point the instructor had the girls choose someone from their family to teach them the steps. Julie went for Sam first but he wasn't having any of that, so she asked Ian. It was so sweet to see the pride and love on her face as she held his arm while she waited her turn.
Afterwards we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream to celebrate. There was a couple sitting at the next table and the woman thought it was the coolest thing ever that we both had a Jordan and a Matthew. She said she also had a Bentley. We refrained from telling her that we did as well, only our Bentley is a guinea pig.
My course homework is done, my little peeps are all in bed, and I'm heading there now too. My throat is hurting and I've started sniffling and sneezing. Hopefully I'll wake up well rested for tomorrow because Wednesdays are my longest days. I leave the house when it's dark, before everyone wakes up, and I'm home after the children are asleep. Last Wednesday I watched the sun rise on my way to work, watched the sun set out of my office window, and stood outside watching the stars before I came in for the night.
Blessings... they're everywhere.
