People You Like To Be Around

I ran around like crazy today, and my last stop was Haggen (the grocery store). I was almost out of there when I ran into a gal I know from MOPs. Shanna, this is a shout out to you.
Shanna always has a thousand megawatt smile. She always remembers the small stuff you tell her, and remembers to ask the next time you see her.
We were talking about what my plans were for next year and for the summer, as far as school goes, and I mentioned that Caleb is slowly catching up to his peers. You know what that Shanna said to me?
"What a miracle!"
Yeah, it is a miracle. He was so far behind academically that I wondered at times if he was ever going to catch up. I get so caught up in the smallness of living from day to day that I rarely step back to look at the bigger picture. It's a miracle.
We all know those people that we hide from in the store because they are such life sucking downers (did I just type that out loud?). And then there are the Shannas. If you don't have a Shanna, you really should get one!

One Shanna, please. Do you deliver?

Ditto, what Heather said. I try to be that person with others as people constantly say to me, "I can't believe you remember that." But alas, I don't really have a Shanna. That's why I hang out with you guys ;)

I am in the process of re-creating my blog links. You were #1 in the alpahbet so this is my first stop.
