1. Thankful for this warm, wonderful, sunny day - knowing that the cold ones are coming.
2. Grateful for the kindness of strangers. We walked out of Micro Center Compter store into a small knot of concerned people gathered around a very elderly man who had fallen and was bleeding from a head wound. While they were waiting for an ambulance a woman was holding a cloth over the gash to stop the bleeding which had splattered his blood in a circle around him on the cement floor. Jim stepped over, took a look and asked a few questions. Then waited with them until the EMT guys arrived. I stood by - impressed and touched by the caring being shared by so many with a complete stranger in trouble.
3. Thanking Mr. Boon for cleaning my desk top computer of the viruses that appeared from nowhere several days ago and locked up the system. "Back-up. Back-up." He warned me. "look I printed that on your receipt." "I will. I will." At this Jim piped in - "tell her 100 more times." At that Mr. Boon burst out laughing. Hm. Would be funny if it did not hit so close to home.
