It was one of those lunch dates that, once the day arrived, I really felt as though I shouldn’t leave my desk. My mind was busy with voices saying fingers should stay on the keyboard, be productive not social, etc. But this was to be an unusual celebration: a friend from one facet of my life had posted on facebook that her daughter was going to be spending a semester in Switzerland and in desperate need of a place to live. Immediately, I responded to her plea, tagging another friend who had lived for years in Switzerland. One facebook message led to another and within days accommodations were found and new friends made. Voilah! Our lunch date was an opportunity for everyone to meet face-to-face and too special an occasion for me to miss.
We had a grand time, laughing together like old friends. By the time I was back in the car, my mood had lifted, returned to that place that sees the glass half full. A thank you was in order. And the best way I know how is with a picture.
Perhaps you’d like to send someone a thank you, too? I’ve posted this card here (until Sept. 1). Send as many as you like, as many as you need.
