Yesterday was a great day. It was one of those “feel good” days, and came about in a most unexpected way. My friend, Kim, came over and asked me if I would go to the nursing home and trim her grandmother’s hair. So of course, I grabbed the scissors and comb and off we went.
Bless her heart… she really tickles me. You wouldn’t think it to look at her, but she is all vinegar and spice. The thing is, with so little “blood kin”, my freinds ARE my family, and I couldn’t help but notice how easily “grandma” just rolled off the tongue. The real good feel good, though, comes from knowing that too my freinds and their families, I am just another sister, daughter, aunt, or cousin. When you get right down to it, I probably have one of the largest “extended families” on the planet.
I’m a firm believer in “you get what you give”… in work, friendships, relationships… and I thought I’d take a page to express thanks to those who love me… in spite of me… and consider me to be as much a part of their families, as I consider them part of mine.
