A Southern Happy

Yesterday was a good day. There were several ingredients that went into that good day. Here are few:

  • Vacation Bible School
  • Great conversations with a couple of friends
  • Sweet tears of camaraderie
  • Fabulous lunch with fabulous friends
  • Laughing over silly stuff with fab friends
  • A new (much thinner) cover for my phone
  • More silliness
  • Baby wrens and bluebirds
  • Picking fresh, FAT blackberries and blueberries
  • More laughing
One of the good things was a conversation with Candace, an amazing lady from my SS class. Candace has a great heart. Moreover, she is a good listener and generous with encouraging words. What a wonderful combination. We made a connection, and it felt good to know someone else knew how my heart felt.

Later I met up with another friend, Jack. She invited me to lunch with her and her husband. Oh, what a treat. We had yummy food and a seriously fun time. I just love when you are your silliest and your friends are in on the antics.

After lunch we went back to J & M's house to do a little work. They are getting ready to sell and move away. J & M have magnificent berry bushes, and the most unbelievable fig tree I've EVER seen. (It is over 2 stories tall and over 20 feet wide!)

Thankfully, I got to take a TON of blackberries home. And since I was so blessed I thought it would be fun to share. I took a large jar and filled it with berries for Candace. It was supposed to be a "thank you" for the needed encouragement. But honestly, I think I got more joy from picking and packaging the gift as anyone could have gotten from receiving it.

Seriously, is there anything better than giving someone a happy? I think not.
