I've got sunshine

On a (partly) cloudy (cold and windy) day.

When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May.

Well, I guess you'll say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl - talking 'bout Folding Laundry girl, as in Beth.

Today I have had a smile on my face, a spring in my step, and an attitude of happiness.

Beth and her wonderful family stopped by for a visit on their way back home to Indiana. It's amazing what joy a friend can bring you, especially one you haven't seen in awhile. Although their visit was short, it still meant so much to me.

I didn't tell my boys they were coming, but I did tell them they had a surprise to look forward to. The suspense was killing them. And when the doorbell rang this morning and I announced that the surprise was here, the look on their faces was priceless. I think they were in pure shock. They stood there and stared with huge grins on their faces. I wish I could have captured that moment on tape, but it will always be in my heart.

The kids went right to playing and we ended up losing track of time. It was already ten after twelve and Carson's bus had gone by without him getting on it. Oops!

To spend time with one of my true friends was exactly what I needed. It has brightened my day. So I challenge each of you today to reach out and give a friend a call or send them a note or an email to tell them you're thinking about them. You'll never know how much that can make their day and put a smile on their face.


  1. Okay. I'll make a call. I needed this kick in the pants...

  2. Oh my gosh, you sang to me. Well, sort of.

    Seriously, I LOVED this morning. We all did, we were so sad to leave but so, so, so happy we stopped by. I realized how much I missed you. JERK. Thanks for reminding me. And thanks for your other presents. You spoiler you.

    I'm so happy to have been a source of joy for you today. It's about time I was able to pay you back for all of the joy you have brought to me.

  3. Your post made my step lighter and brought a smile to my face. Very very nice!

  4. Okay, you totally made me me miss Beth so much. BOOOOOO!

    So next time I'm in Indiana, you have to come to Beth's house so I can meet you too. I feel like I know you already because Beth talks about you so much and has wonderful, wonderful things to say about you!!

    Thanks for bringing a smile to my face today.

  5. You two are lucky to have each other! That is a sweet story, I love how the missed bus didn't even matter!


Your comments make my day - so go on, share!
