Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

Random Act...

Photo from: The Beautiful Heart Foundation, Inc.

I took my sister to the airport early this morning, with a stop at McD's before arriving at school. As I pulled up the window to pay, the cashier told me the truck in front of me had paid for me. I laughed, thinking she was being funny but no, the man in front of us had paid for breakfast for us!

I cannot tell you how this made me feel! I honked twice and waved and he did a friendly wave back and left. (It was all I could do to not get out of my car and tackle the guy with a giant hug!!!) Little L and I spent the whole trip to school discussing ways to pay it forward.

I hope you get to be the recipient of a random act like this and I also hope that you will just make an effort to perform one act of random kindness. You never know who or how you are affecting someone!

Poet Rumi: "Be kind to everyone you meet. Everyone you meet is carrying a burden of some kind."
