We all know it can be a tough world and even when we are having a great day, we know someone who may be dealing with something tragic, sad, maddening.
Yesterday was one of those days ~ when I knew of a family having a very bad day ~ an event changed them forever.
As my day unfolded, I kept wondering where I would find my positive focus. And I even felt guilty trying to find something positive when I knew others were suffering.
It turns out I was fortunate enough to find two rays of sunshine, without even trying.
- The first beams at me before the sun arises, when I get to Midtown Fitness at 5:30am. Miss Emma greets all comers with a bright and sincere smile. My good friend, Kat, is also there to sweat on those evil treadmills with me. Although I see them both almost every day, I would be a fool to take seeing them for granted.
- The second beamed at me after the sun had set, when I traipsed into Price Chopper after work for some veggies. As I turned the corner into the soda aisle, since I heard the ever tempting Diet Dew calling my name, I bumped smack into a great guy that I had not seen in probably 9 months, and it was his birthday! Hugs and chit chats were exchanged. I wish there were enough time to see everyone, all the time!
I am a Putnamaniac that loves every ray of sunshine I get!
