This week I’m celebrating encounters.
Sometimes you meet people that give you an opportunity to keep believing in the good. I know I’ve had moments when people enter my life albeit briefly and I come out of it better and happier. And I love it when I get to be that person for someone.
There was a lady who came to the store and my co-worker and I ended up having dinner with her after work. She was new to Portland and I think she needed someone to talk to. So, we listened. It wasn’t too much of an imposition to stay. She was funny and interesting and a kind spirit.
I got to tell her some of my beliefs, which I love talking about.
One of the best compliments I ever got was from her when she said my mom would have been proud to have a son like me. It’s bragging I know but whatever. I got teary eyed.
My Audio/Video Pick of the Week is a song from a musical I really want to see, Hamilton.
What are you celebrating this week?
