Special Moment – A Phonecall from an old Friend

March 12, 2009

I had a lovely surprise last night.  At about 9 o’clock, my son called me for a phonecall.  The voice was one I hadn’t heard for a long time – it was my old friend Margaret, and we hadn’t managed to catch up with each other for absolutely ages – could it even be a couple of years?  We send notes with Christmas cards every year, but with busy lives its very difficult to keep up to date.

Well last night we spoke for ages.  We caught up on all the old mutual friends, what our kids are up to, news about our lives now, and – even better – we made a plan to catch up in person over the summer.

It has woken me up out of my reverie, and I am thinking which other old friends I can surprise with a phonecall.

Pure therapy.

Wishing you countless Special Moments every day.



Make Someone’s Day – It’s So Easy!!!

November 6, 2008

A really lovely thing happened to me today.  I was at the gym (reluctant to go, but when I went I really enjoyed it).

When I came out to my car, my husband, Tony, had seen my car parked outside the gym and had left me a note scribbled on a scrap of paper on the front of the dashboard.  Now, I won’t tell you all what it said – that was just for me!  But I was simply delighted.  It gave me a real lift.

I paid for someone’s coffee today, without them knowing until after I had gone.  Also, it’s my son’s birthday today, and he’s not expecting a surprise when I collect him from school.  Its a little surprise, but I hope it helps make his day.  I’m sure there will be lots of other people I can help feel good.  This is great!!!!

Wishing you countless Special Moments every day.
