This week was all about getting things done, cramming in as much as I could before surgery and before my forced downtime. Play dates with besties, sushi with my boys, back to school shopping, bills (yuck), a supreme haircut from the hair goddess and of course pedicures with the most important ladies of my life.
It was relaxing to sit in the magic fingers chair, plotting how I could smuggle it out of the salon. Seriously, why don't I have one of those suckers!
My littles were pampered, although 2 of the 3 found the pink head on top of their chair creepy.
The entertainment of course came from Katie, who could not control the bouts of giggles as her feet were being scrubbed.
The finished results were a bunch of beautiful tootsies, a morning with my girls, my mom and my sister, memories of warmth and especially this reminder...
I am RICH!
After being asked about my children, I pointed to all my beautiful girls and added in that I have two handsome boys at home, the pedicure tech then exclaimed "YOU ARE RICH! So very blessed!"
I couldn't help but think of George Bailey and the note that Clarence wrote him on the inside of Tom Sawyer:
"Dear George, remember no man is a failure who has friends. Thanks for the wings! Love Clarence"
Life is hard and scary and down right stinky sometimes but I am RICH! You are rich, every single person can find the beauty given to them from God, it just has to be found, sometimes pointed out to us by complete strangers, angels walking amongst us. It is a Wonderful Life!
