My own Good Friday

Have you ever had one of those days where it doesn't matter what the weather is like or who is around you ~ you are feeling great physically and spritually?

Well my day like that was Friday 8/28. No particular reason... just full of peace & serenity. I was comfortable down to the core, including my clothes. It was Friday & I wore a black wrap around dress with a thin black wrap around overlay to keep me warm from the chill that was in the grey sky.
Needless to say, I didn't think it was going to start out that way. I DID NOT want to get out of bed! Nope... no having it ~ Chad was trying so hard. I had already snoozed the first train away. Then all of a sudden, as if answering Chad's prayers, a cardinal was outside my window chirpping as loud and fast as she could. I knew it was a "she" because I crawled out of bed to see her. She saw me see her & then flew away. That was it ~ the start to my good Friday!

The weather channel called for storms, but i didn't care, I wore my lil leopard flip flops with hopes to splash in the rain. Oooops ~ I forgot my umbrella! Silly me. It wasn't so bad at the train, but when I came out of the subway up the stairs to my street, I saw it was a steady pour. Oh boy - it was my lucky day.... a lil asian lady was at the top of the stairs selling umbrellas for $5. I got one! Stayed dry all the way to work. I got to my door and pulled my umbrella closed when I saw a resident of my building standing there without an umbrella not sure what to do. I didn't even hesitate ~ I handed her my umbrella & said "Here you go - stay dry"! She was so shocked she didn't know what to say. She tried to say "No, that's okay...". I told her I didn't have one either today & got lucky with my top of the stairs find. She said she couldn't believe I would do this and has never met anyone so kind. That was IT - my day was made!! Her happiness made me happy.

That's what lifes about my friends.... that's what lifes about!

Oh, I checked my E-mail later that day & was surprised by my note from the Universe & Thought for the day, they went with the energy of what I felt that day. Pretty amazing sometimes:

"Last night, Jeni, I was dreaming of you, again.

You were radiant, confident, and light beamed in every direction from the core of your being. Music followed you, angels serenaded you, and everyone was elevated by your presence. Wisdom shown from your eyes. Kindness emanated from your touch. And your power was simply awesome.

You looked, well... pretty much... exactly as you do right now.
The Universe "
