Today I has received many little surprises. It looks like I am happier and more open and therefore I am receiving many gifts from my children and my friends.
I am blessed with a very generous son and after meeting him this afternoon I decided to treat myself to a Starbucks coffee. When I was at the window I met the young man who serve me and his name is Elijah. For some reason there was a mistake with my Starbucks card and I got a free coffee and banana nut bread.
So between my son's hugs and kisses and the free coffee and banana nut bread, I felt very happy and in good spirits. So on my way home I played an old CD by Mel Torme. I was a happy gal all the way home.
Elijah was a sweet surprise because during the brief conversation at the Starbucks window we made a deal. He'll learn to compose stories a day I am to learn to compose music. It so happens that I love music.
Whether or not I learn to compose, I am enchanted with the idea from a most perfect stranger.
