A Fabulous Friend


I am so lucky to have such a great friend in my life. This morning was horrible, everything was going wrong! First, I forgot to pay my rent on the 1st so I received a note from my landlord saying that I have to pay a $50 late fee. After finding that notice, I go to the garage and find that my parking spot neighbor has all of her car doors open and doesn't have the decency to close them so that I can back out of my spot--I have incredibly unfriendly prople in the building. Next, my 3G is down and I cannot make an outgoing calls on my cell phone.


After feeling sorry for myself for the better part of the day, and complaining via email to Stephanie all morning, I was pleasantly surprised to return from a break and find flowers on my desk at work! A pot full of Fall colored flowers at that (she knows my obsession with the season and my desire to experience the color changes of Autumn) that smell amazing!


Be grateful for those special people in your life and don't take them for granted. We often get caught up in our "problems" and don't realize just how lucky we really are and how our little trials are easily conquered with the help of great people =)

I know the feeling when it seems like everything is going wrong. This gesture is so sweet, and I know that Steph meant it from the bottom of her heart. You are a fabulous friend too, so of course, you attract only goodness Leeann.
