I was feeling kind of blah sad this morning,
Couldn’t figure out what I felt like doing – doing nothing didn’t seem like much of an option seeing as how it was sort of sunny and dry outside. It’s been grey and raining for days and days.
I searched my sad mind for something to do that would get me out of the “sads” — nothing really came to mind so I decided, ‘oh well’ I guess I’ll go out and at least pick up some fruit for lunches tomorrow.
I drive my sad self to the grocery store, shuffle my sad feet in to the store and before I make it 10feet inside the store I see a lady that I used to work with many years ago. She’s with her husband and they both look FANTASTIC!! I’m standing there trying to make conversation with them as I have this thought ..
I came downtown without washing my hair, I’m wearing an old scruffy sweater and I know I look like hell…
but that’s not the worst part!…
It gets better! …
As I’m standing there another person I know goes past us – “Hi Kathy!” they say..
and another lady goes by who I know – “Hi Kathy!” she says..
My ex co-worker says “Wow you sure know a lot of people!”
and then another man comes by (my ex-boss) and says “Hi Kathy!”
….. Now remember… I look like HELL
AND I’M a SAD “looking like HELL” Kathy….
I finish up my conversation and walk away to start my shopping.
It wasn’t until AFTER I finished my shopping and I was heading outside to the vehicle, that I realized all those people were there at that moment to remind me that I have lots of people (friends and family) around me that care ABOUT me… That’s a good thing to have in our lives!
Now back to the kitchen I go to create some kind of masterpiece for dinner. I bought the fixings for a new recipe for Curried Chicken, Roti and Lentil Dahl.. I haven’t made any of them before so it should be an interesting dinner..
