Your life tells a story

I just received the sweetest compliment.

My day started off rocky to say the least. 
Bit a little piece of everyone's head my house. 

Traffic trying to get to an appointment.
For. An. Hour!

And my insides ache, just because I woke up today. 

So. I drop Chappy at his appointment and go down the block to grab a cup of coffee. 
They are closed. 
Power outage. 
Of course they are. 

So. I go about 10 minutes down the way, to another. 
They are open. 

And everyone said amen! 

So. I'm getting my coffee. 
In a personalized cup, that my sweet friend Diane bought me. 
The lady next to me began to compliment the cup. It's so cute with Mickey on it.

You like Disney?! 
"I do. And I'm a Disney Travel
planner, so my worlds collide. And I love it."

Oh wow. Fun! 
As we are talking, she noticed my shirt. Oh I love that verse.  That's my favorite scripture. 
I tell her that my friend Jennifer gave this to me for my 40th birthday. 

And because it celebrates Kayla, and her verse as she continues her cancer journey. 

I instinctively refer to my purple bracelet, as I speak of Kayla

Then the lady, "oh my word. Look at that bracelet. How gorgeous" (referring to my Lucy's Locket cuff. 

And I begin to brag on Lucy, and her success and her gorgeous jewelry. 

And then I point out that my necklace is also a Lucy's Locket.

And the lady squeals, "your entire life tells such a lovely story" 

Gah. It sure does. She snapped me back into check so fast. 
I'm blessed with great friends and sweet treasures. 

What a lovely compliment. 
My life tells a lovely story. 

So much better than boring :)
