It’s been a really weird day. First thing I did was wake up to apologize to my husband for losing his money. Apologizing is hard for me, so to do it first thing in the morning…that was weird.
Then I took my 22 month old creator of chaos to school and he didn’t even shed a tear…even weirder.
From there, I started off to work. I had a weird feeling I should try and look for my lost money again, which I just knew would be pointless, but my mind had been racing for 10 hours straight, with the most restless sleep ever, so I had to try again.
STOP IT- I FOUND THE MONEY!
So I figured since I was $100 richer I should stop and get a coffee at Starbucks. I almost ordered a Venti, but I thought that was a bad use of money since it always gets cold before I finish it. When I pulled up to the window the lady told me they made a mistake and made me a Venti, no extra charge. SO weird.
By this point, it wasn’t even 7:30 yet, I felt like the luckiest lady in the world.
I mean who finds lost money, gets free extra coffee and has a kid with no tears all before 8am?!
Before I pulled up to work I had some imaginary notion that today was going to be the day I hit the lotto, closed a huge deal and was praised by everyone I passed. Let me be the first to tell you, I hit the luck jackpot before 8 am and apparently I used up all my luck first thing in the morning. The rest of the day has been quite the opposite.
At lunch I started thinking about this. It’s funny how you can have a great day and instead of just being thankful for it, you instead think that life will just be that great all the time.
I guess the lesson I learned from my morning is to be thankful when great things happen but not to expect great things to continue to happen. Cherish the special moments, they all won’t be special, but that’s what makes you appreciate the ones that are.
