Happy Thursday

Pin It So, what does one do when it’s approaching midnight and they cannot seem to fall asleep? In the old days, I’d have simply tossed and turned for a couple of hours.

Not anymore. Now, I blog.

Isn’t it interesting that little things happen which tend to make our day just a little bit brighter? Knowing that someone—somewhere—took the time to do a small act of service simply to remind us that we are important?

I left work this evening with a migraine which had taken over sometime around 9:00 this morning, and had dominated my pain receptors the entire day.

It was simply too much.

When I was leaving work at 5:00, I stepped out into the softly falling snow, which blew and eddied about my feet in washes of eggshell. I put my laptop, as well as other various and sundry items, into my car. It was at this particular juncture of time that I noticed the envelope situated on my windshield, partially veiled under a dusting of fresh snow.

The envelope simply read:


I had no idea that Thursday was such a cause for celebration of messages or gifts; however, this mattered not. So, despite the migraine pounding in my skull, I felt a sense of gratitude as I tore open the envelope and a small, folded piece of paper fell into my hand.


Now, who can’t find gratitude for a free Dr. Pepper?

Especially when he has a headache at the time?

Now, I have a fair idea of who this item is from, so I’ll simply tell this person out stalking the neighborhoods planting small gifts of friendship and appreciation….

Thanks. It meant a lot. Not only to the headache, but to me.
