By nine, I was toast!
But good news for mama, the procedure she's undergoing seems to be working. Sending up love & prayers that it continues to improve and she's feeling like herself by Wednesday. The heart is such a tricky organ. Trust me when I say never, ever take your heart for granted... and never ignore warning signs of "not feeling quite right."
In other updates, we had a fun open house on Sunday despite the weather not cooperating. It was pouring rain... not just a drizzle, but seriously dumping 5 gallon drums at the exact moment you got out of your car to walk into the house.
But here's the crowning moment of the weekend...
I had the most amazing experience on my way to the open house Sunday. I had been feeling punky... for many reasons. So I figured what the heck, pick up a super.duper.LARGE.mocha.loaded.with.sugar.and.caffeine on my way out to the open house and at least I can fake it that I have a boatload of energy going on. I ordered one for my and a custom drink for my friend Elaine who was hosting the open house.
I ordered, and pulled forward eventually getting to the window for my drinks. The barrista (who looked like a young fabio... beautiful hair, dark and curly, a little long - I swear right out of the Mediterranean) said it me "It's your Lucky Day!" My quizzical look prompted him to continue. "The woman in the car in front of you wanted to buy one of your drinks. So you only owe me $2.06 today."
My response, "Really? Who was she? Do I know her?" "Nope, she didn't know you, just wanted to treat you today."
"Oh my, Thank you so much. I really needed this today."
After pulling away from the window, I pulled over and broke out in tears. While I've given many of cups of coffee as a Pay it Forward over the years, or bought a drink for another table at the restaurant, I've never been on the receiving end. This experience simply melted me. How the kindness of a complete stranger 100% flipped my day around. I was so grateful, humbled, inspired and amazed. Seriously, I had no idea how it felt... and now having experienced it myself will do this again, and again. It was simply amazing.
So that's my weekend wrap up. I'll be adding a few new pieces to my Etsy store today, keeping mama in line at the hospital, making sure my papa is behaving himself at home and then working on a few custom orders that I really need to finish.
Sending you love this morning! If I could buy you all a cuppa java this morning I would! 'Cuz if you're still reading, I really appreciate it!
