As I am sitting at my computer this morning, waiting for what seams like an eternity for my computer to reboot after installing automatic updates, I have time to think about how I would like to begin my day. I look at my Mary Englebriet Calendar and the words of Wisdom for November.
A cheerful friend is like a sunny day spreading brightness all around –Sir John Lubbock
That statement rings true as I was touched by a friend I have known for over 30 years. We drifted apart in our 20’s after we both were married and starting our family life. However, she was always in my thoughts. Even though I sound a little grumpy this morning about my impatience with technology; it is through the wonders of social networking that I have recently been reunited with a friend that is meant to be in my life. She lives about 5 hours away in another state so it makes it difficult to see her as often as I would like. We recently had lunch together and it was as if we picked up our conversation right where we had left off. I walked away so happy, filled with inspiration and then I realized there were still 100 things I wanted to tell her.
She sent me a text this week that fills my heart with joy every time I read it and mirrors the sentiment of the November Words of Wisdom.
“Hey Pooh, haven’t seen u on Facebook for a few days now, hope everything is OK. If you ever need anyone to worry about u, I am available.”
What a great reminder to PAY IT FORWARD with a Random Act of Kindness.
May you have a great day, go out there and Finish Your Friday!
