Beautiful Blurt

Had a nice drive to take my nephew to an orthodontist appointment. 45 minutes there, 45 minutes back. The appointment was a noon, so after we stopped at a Sonic to pick up some food.  Chicken for Nicholas and Mom and a burger for me.

The gal came to deliver the food. We traded a box, a bag and the cups for cash.

Then, suddenly, out of the blue, to the shock of all in the car...I know, I think I am going a bit overboard but it was CRAZY.  She looks at Mom and says.

"Ma'am, You're Beautiful."

WOW! What? Who Me? Mom was flabbergasted. She went on to say basically the same sentiment for a few more minutes, and Mom finally stopped protesting and accepted the compliment.

Those three words made Mom feel good. They made her feel beautiful. Made her feel noticed.

That girl does not know my mother, nor me. I don't think that she does that to everyone she delivers lunch to. Where ever you are Sonic Server, Thanks. Here's to you. You are Beautiful. You are celebrated today!

BONUS CELEBRATE: Actually, not for me...Although Had I known that it was National Frappe Day, we would have gotten Blasts, or shakes or something similar!

Today I celebrate my old friend Grace.  She started a blog here and helped me realize that I really missed writing something almost every day. I have lost my followers here and hope maybe I can get all four of them back again...maybe a few more to boot.

Grace and I met when we were in elementary school...Marumsco Hills. She was a grade below me she mostly hung out with my sister, Debi, and I was friends with her sister, Kristina. It is funny how time and distance change things.

In the early 1970s the kids in our neighborhood were nearly inseparable. Skating, Biking, Red Light-Green-Light, Red Rover, cookies (thanks, Mom). Back then we used to walk to school, well, at least until we moved up to the middle school and then, at least for Kristina and I, the High School. (Man, did that terrify me!!!)

Anyway, thanks Grace for starting a blog and as soon as I figure out how to follow your blog I will!


PS...Didn't know it until I finished this post that today is
National Good Neighbor Day....
I think I am a fair current neighbor and let's ask Grace what kind of past neighbor I was.   ;)
