A Perfect Friday in December
Steven and I go to Sonic a couple times a week for a #13 Breakfast Combo, no egg, large unsweet tea. It is usually on Saturdays, but occasionally I'll treat myself during the week. (Remember, food = love) We have the most wonderful girl that works at our Sonic. She remembers my order, she calls Steven, "Boo" and she always greets us with a smile and warmth. That is gift enough, right? Well, today, she gave us a Christmas card. I was seriously blown away. She is nice to us each and every day, and she took the extra step this morning, and gave us a card. Inside, she signed it, "Michelle from Sonic." That made it precious in itself.
Later in the day, the mail came at work. In it was a package from a fellow blogger, Grandma K. (check her out, you'll love her!) In it were hand sewn Christmas decorations, all with the most gorgeous detail. I was so surprised to receive these thoughtful treats, and at work! Be still my beating heart. GK sent me a loving warm Christmas card and it warmed me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. Thank you Karen. You are a blessing to me! There are more that didn't make it into the picture, but these show you how adorable they all are.
So, after all this love and goodness, I get home from work to a package on my front porch. The package was from my dear friends from St. Louis, the Jackson's. Remember, just a few days ago, I mentioned them when speaking of my favorite tree ornament, the St. Louis Arch. Well, there is a new one to rival it. It is a World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals ornament. I now have two all time favorite ornaments, and both are from the same folks and honoring that special city.
I am enjoying my Friday night with a lovely glass of Chardonnay, I ate some yummy pasta, and am now settled in for a night on the couch with my computer, my animals and the husband. I feel so thankful and so loved, and grateful that life is so good.
Oh, and just to keep it real: here's Steven's favorite ornament on our tree...
Happy Friday Friends. I hope you are feeling the love.
