Then as we sat down a gentleman and a lady I would say in their late 60's asked me if I had a little princess with them because of course my youngest was dressed in a huge poofy pink dress, pink sweater, and pink striped leggings. I said of course and they told her she was gorgeous. Well we sat down to eat and after quite a while they got up to leave. The came over to me and this is the converstaion that insued:
Lady: Your headbands are beautiful!
Me: Thank you my sister made them.
Lady: Well she did a great job.
The she lowered her voice and said to me: "Your girls are absolutely beautiful.
Me:Well thank you very much!
Lady: Really they are.
Then her husband looked at me and said:
Man: I have thoroughly enjoyed watching you interact with your children. You are a joy to watch. Every parent should be that way with their children.
Me: (Bursting with pride) Thank you so much. They mean a lot to me
Man: Well, and they are growing up beautifully are they not?
Me:Yes they definitely are
Them:Have a good night enjoy your weekend.
It made me feel good to think that strangers would think that I am doing a good job with my children. it made me wonder. Are good parents in such short supply that it is a surprise when you do find them? Or is it that the bad ones make themselves known so much more?
Also my fortune tonight said this and I am so excited and love this!!
"Your happiness is intertwined with your outlook on life."
How perfect is that statement? How much better of a fortune could that be? Everyday the way you respond to the little things, is what makes up your big picture.
A great surprise is waiting for you
A happy life is right before your eyes
What a fun night at the Chinese place. Seriously.
here are some pictures of me and my girls in the headbands we got!
Awesome. Great. Fabulous Day. the end
