It's a New Day



Yesterday was "one of those days."  Actually, it's been one of those months.  By 7:00 last night I had made up my mind that the only way I'd survive the day with my hope intact was if somebody brought me a suprise strawberry pie (or something of equal yumminess) or if my sister-in-law went into labor so I could hold her newborn.  A couple texts later I learned that she wasn't having her baby that night.  As my day unraveled more, I got a sudden text from my dear Shauna saying she and and some other friends were throwing together an impromptu girl's night to Walmart. 

And this is why I know there is a God.  I'm not joking around when I say that friends + Walmart late at night = nothing better (besides a newborn baby).  Nothing could have busted me out of my funk besides great friends.

And so I came home after midnight with a 3-pound bag of sour patch kids and my attitude readjusted.

Today is a new day.  Plus I ran across this video, which helps too.

That video is priceless - where did you find it? As far as that infamous night goes - I have not laughed so hard in such awhile - I totally needed it. I just wish we could have seen security escort you out :)
