Nothing very special happened, I laughed today - even though I did not want to go to work. Someone brought me in a little container of watermelon for breakfast, because she was thinking of me while packing her's.
Made a new friend over witnessing a killer wasp battle with a cicada. It was horrible. But they made me watch. Get over here! It's nature!
Now I have a hornet/wasp friend at work.
With all this nastyness going on, I just wanted to hear some nice things.
Was late to the office - no else there today but me. The phone ringing urgently before I even take my keys out of the door. A young father sobbing: the baby's not doing well, it's pretty bad. Surgery went well but now she's not breathing. I was crying right along with him (my job involves lots of crying with others). Got the priest to go to hospital asap. Said prayers. Asked others for prayers. Baby is now out of the woods - way out of the woods. Miraculously well now. Gorgeous baby girl with a long road ahead but with parents who love her deeply. When your day starts like that nothing else matters. Baby's ok now. All will be well.
What a gift to start your day with a watermelon surprise! And a wasp/cicada battle: cool!! That's kind of a fun place sometimes too! With the singing welder and Mad Men atmosphere. They need you to bring them into this century.
I woke up. That's always a good thing, right? Cat came into the bathroom while I showered and was purring happily for me after I dried off- nothing makes me happier than to hear her happy little purrs. Made it thru the work day without strangling anyone- customer or co-worker. That's always a good thing, right? Just bought tix to see the new Absolutely Fabulous movie that opens tomorrow. I've waited years to see Patsy and Eddy on the big screen!!!!
