This morning I woke up grouchy as hell and had a really tough time convincing myself that it would be good to get up and DO something and GET A GRIP ALREADY!!
I checked my gmail and found the following message:
Hi! This is (old friend from high school). I am in your neighborhood! I would like to get in touch with you. Can you send me your email address?
Before you knew it, this friend who I haven't seen in 21 years was standing on my doorstep with her family. And what a lovely visit it's been! Like the years melted away and we were young again.
It's so very very special when something like this happens, and has done me a world of good.
