1. Less than 24 hours after my husband hopped a plane for a destination halfway across the world [literally], various things in our home started to fall to pieces. (Mice in the garage, puppies peeing on carpet, lightbulbs burring out right and left [which may not seem like a big deal, except I’m a short girl in a home with high ceilings – and the lights are circular fluorescent tubes that are a pain in the tukus to remove/replace…], my hormones entering overdrive, etc. etc. etc.). I received kind support from friends and family – but what I really wanted was my sweetie. Whom I was simply unable to have. So I took care of business: shooing mice, cleaning carpets, hauling ladders and wrestling with light fixtures… and when I finished the last item, my phone chimed. A text from my sweetie. In that second, my entire day changed. Though he is still thousands of miles away, I felt his virtual hug almost as strongly as if his arms were physically wrapped around me.
2. Receiving the exact piece of advice I needed to see at the precise moment I needed to view it. Universe, thank you for the reminder/kick in the pants!
3. Seeing a rather awesome picture shared on Facebook. Very appropriate for today (for more reasons than one), and hilarious to boot.
