Ever had one? You know what I am talking about! When you can’t wait to get home, throw off your shoes, and just take in a deep breath or two as you quietly say, “Whew…it has been one of THOSE days!” But this day was different from the moment I got up this morning for my morning ritual. Unexpectedly so. I wonder, do you think FATE looks at the calendar of events for all of us and says, “Oh, she is SO going to love what happens to her tomorrow!” or “I am sad that this will happen to them.”? Yes, I wonder those funny thoughts. This morning, I was greeted warmly on a misty, damp and dark morning with a smile I had not seen in some time. As the darkness grew to contain more light, other small reminders showed themselves that almost made me speechless (almost!), but I didn’t want to show it. As those minutes ticked past, it really was like time stood still for those 75 minutes and I was very grateful for the time given to me. Later on, I received a very nice email from a woman who thanked me for something that I did not realize I had done for her daughter and although I am sure she wishes the situation in which I know her daughter was different, somehow she believes that I made a positive impact on this teenager. The day continued with a comment on Fun Dip Wednesday and my reply to someone I have never met before ended with a positive message on attitude. She is struggling to just get through the next 6 months of her job. Holy moly! Without much thinking, I go into what my friends have deemed my “mode” and go on about her involvement in her clients makes a difference, even when she thinks it doesn’t. My day seemed like I was in the right place at the right time for the right things to happen. I hope this happens to me more because I loved it and I guess today was my day to have one of THOSE days!
