Today's Smiles

I had a great day today...well great moments in my day anyway..
It's amazing how one email from a person who you have tried your best to help can make your day when they say thank you...even if things don't work out quite the way you wanted them to.
It's amazing how you can put your head down and look up and it's two hours later and you didn't even realize that much time had passed..
It's amazing how a situation that made you angry can be made better just by someone owning what happened and saying they are sorry...
It's amazing when you can say - no worries- and actually mean it without it festering.
It's amazing how you can do one thing that you do every single day and have someone tell you that you taught them something.
It's amazing how you can ask for help and someone can so unselfishly give it...no questions asked
It's amazing how one package containing something very simple can remind you of home and transport you back to that place that once served you a million cups of coffee and cookies and provided the backdrop for some of the most important conversations with friends.
It's amazing how the look or hug or kiss from one person can make you realize that life is pretty awesome.
there are days, hours, minutes that I don't know which end is up and I am frustrated and upset and one person, one email, one phone call makes me forget all about the craziness and make me realize that is a moment that you will remember...not all the rest of it.
Hugs and love to you all tonight.  I am sending positive thoughts and positive energy to each of you tonight...


  1. Oh yeah I know what you mean to me it is also amazing how we can feel such a great connection with people we have never meet face to face.......

  2. We all need your positive thoughts and energy. As one of my favorite actors use to say in the A-Team, "I love it when a plan comes together". Hope the rest of your week goes to your liking.

  3. Hi Col. Sorry I'm a bit late! Great post, and thank you so much for all those positive thoughts and energy. I appreciate that my friend. I'm wondering if this is anything to do with who was staying with you with the children, or whether you're talking about something completely different! Anyway, whatever it is, it is good news indeed. Sending hugs your way.

  4. And, you my friend, are amazing. And I'm not just saying that. I always know where to come if I need a smile.

    Unless of course we are discussing your fridge. The all bets are off!
