Sunday’s Smiles

The following made me smile last week:

  • seeing my daughter perform her version of a traditional ‘mom I’m right in front of you’ dance

  • sitting next to a Delta Airline pilot who told me I did fine on my first unmedicated, solo flight—even if I did fidget the whole way. Apparently, it isn’t easy for one of their pilots to get upgraded to first class either.

  • squishy bear hug from my mom

  • the way my mom’s huge rat (dog) begs for human food

  • finding pennies just when I need one—you know, the ones from heaven

  • a childhood memory

  • a sunny day in Seattle—there isn’t a place more beautiful…in my opinion

  • bringing sunscreen to Seattle and actually having to use it—but I didn’t because, well–it was cold and I really didn’t sit in the sun.

  • being in the land of my people

  • and the laugh out loud moment…..the Little Missy asking how we found local businesses before Google. My response was the yellow pages and a map. Her response—eew.


About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

  1. As I read this in the car I looked up to see an enormous bird take flight, wing span of about five feet. I smiled. And thought I’d share that with you. πŸ™‚

    I am so glad you got a squishy bear hug from Mom! I also am happy about your daughter’s dance and also, your telling her you could find things without Google in the olden days… cracked me up. Yes! Sometimes mapquest sends you to non-existent places or the wrong way roads… Smiles!

    Ha! Flipping through the yellow pages used to be entertaining. Sometimes I’d find businesses through the various ads on the page that I’d never heard of. But Google is much easier. πŸ™‚ Glad to hear that you made it through the flight unmedicated! That’s huge progress. And you’re right – Seattle is beautiful and so green. All the northern states are beautiful to me.

      The eastern part of Washington and Oregon are a bit ugly to me, but that’s just my opinion. I was reminded of this while travelling to see my sister and her family.

      • mewhoami says:

        Perhaps one day I will travel through those areas to see. All it takes to make me happy are trees and green grass. πŸ™‚

          Few trees, and nothing but brown and sagebrush in the eastern parts of those two states. The western part is paradise in my opinion.
