There are so many wonderful reasons why this blog has been a blessing. Recently, the ability to go back, kind of like a diary, and see what I was doing a year ago etc has been invaluable. In fact, I will go so far as to say it may have saved my sanity.
You see, today is someone's birthday in my house (not me or Mom). A week or so there was a discussion about what to do, how to celebrate. I couldn't remember what we did last year. So........I referred back to the blog........
And there it was - - - a blinding reminder of the events one year ago ---- (I think it may have been so socially traumatic to me that I blocked it out.) You can read about the "fun" time we had here
I came so close to accidentally re-creating that party! Ughhhh. So thanks to this blog, I purchased a table at a local dinner theatre tonight for Auntie and all her friends who will be celebrating tonight and I will be peacefully at home looking after Mom. Sighhhhh! Everyone is happy!
Now, here is another little "Small Town" moment for you. Yesterday morning I went to the drive thru to get my coffee on the way to work. When I got up to the window the lady says "The man in front of you paid for your coffee and said Merry Christmas"!! Wow, I thought that was so sweet. You hear about that sometimes but it never happens to you. So I mentioned it on facebook. THEN this morning I am in line again and I recognize the car in front of me. I know he and his wife and I'm guessing they saw my facebook post. I roll up to the window and the lady says "The man if front of you paid for your coffee!"
TWO days in a row!!! Guess I'm going to have to pay it forward :)
