I’ve lived my entire life without hearing many things.
I’ve never been told:
“Congratulations!!!! You are a father!”
“We would like to inform you that you won an all paid for expense trip to Ireland/Japan/Australia/Sweden/Scotland/Cleveland!!” (Or any highly acclaimed location I would love to visit.)
“COME ON DOWN! YOU’RE THE NEXT CONTESTANT ON THE PRICE IS RIGHT!!!!”
“And the Academy Award goes to…….Chatter Master!”
Some things I don’t ever expect to hear. As a matter of fact I am one hundred percent positive I will never hear at least one of those. The others, who knows. Lovely things in life do happen.
And after today I do believe in the beauty of unexpected surprises.
At the dentist office today a dental technician was taking an x-ray and she said:
“Oh my you have the tiniest little mouth don’t you!”
It made me laugh when I needed a laugh. And gave me a professional statement that I can retaliate with if anyone ever calls me a “big mouth”.
It truly is the little things in life.
And guess who was my favorite today?
