Today it finally happened. After hearing about it all the time but never experiencing it, someone paid for my Starbucks order in the drive through! It's like winning the random acts of kindness lottery. You feel special and chosen, and it instantly cheered me up. And boy did I need cheering up. It was the whole reason I was in that drive through line. And in case you're wondering, yes I did pay it forward (backward?) and paid for the person behind me. You better believe I was passing on that insta-good mood karma.
Yes it's easier to leave him home. Let him stay with Tom while I go hang out with my two favorite ladies. Two on one, big people to littles. It's a lot less hectic, a lot less tiring.
The look on their faces when they see each other? When they realize that this wasn't just a normal outing, that they get to see their buddy? Pure joy, happiness and excitement.
Well it finally happened. We were warned about it. Told to avoid it at all costs because of the trouble it causes. I thought we were being careful, but it finally happened.
