Sometimes, somebody you don't know at all can turn your day around. Today was just a Monday kind of day, not horrible, but moderately frustrating and busy. After lunch I was sitting at my desk, waiting for my 1:30 meeting. I saw someone coming up to the door, and since I always wear my glasses on top of my head so I can't see a thing, I assume it was my 1:30 meeting and waved. I got up to the door however and realized it wasn't Ella...it was someone I didn't know. She paused and said, "this is going to seem weird." I laughed and said that was fine and she told me she didn't know me, but she reads my blog and she had a Christmas present for Owen and me. I couldn't believe it. I gave her a hug and she told me her name was Lori (Laurie??) and then Ella showed up for our meeting and my new friend Lori took off.
I am SO mad I didn't get her full name or her email....Lori...PLEASE, please message me at thesandwichlife gmail address!!!
It just totally made my day. When I got home I recounted the story and let the guys open it.
Look at the glory of this:
Owen had already been researching luggage racks for Cyril so he could put a Christmas tree on him. See? Great minds.... Oh, and Owen looked really happy until I tried to take a picture. Then he went with that impassive teenager look.
I'm thinking it may have to be the tip jar when the Taxi Boys play our Open House!
I send my love to you Lori. A really good lesson in doing something kind even if you DO think they might think you are crazy. We definitely think you are, by the way, but in the very, very best way.
