It's The Little Things
Sometimes a little thing makes my day. Today, for example. Late this morning my 24 year old son called and invited me to have brunch with him and a friend. I turned him down because I was hard at work in the studio --- I was dressed in sweatpants and a t-shirt, no makeup, etc. --- you get the picture. So I hung up the phone and sewed for a few more minutes, all the while re-thinking my decision. I feel very blessed that my son considers me a good friend, and that his friends are comfortable enough with me to invite me out with them. So I called my son back and accepted his offer to join the two of them for brunch. We had a delicious meal, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with both of them. Then the check came, and my son's friend announced that he was paying for all three of us. This is not a rich kid, and I really felt special because of his gesture. How lucky am I to first have received the invitation, and second to have been treated by my son's friend. It made my day!
On another note.....here's a new photo of Zeke. His ears are now standing up, so he is starting to look more like a silky terrier.
