Pay it forward
Since we don’t really celebrate Valentines Day, it was a typical day around here. We went to lunch and hung out around the house because we are exciting lame like that.
I went to the nail salon for a much needed pedicure. My paws were starting to resemble gargoyle feet. Sexy.
Fun fact, I had acrylic nails for over 10 years back in the day. I loved them, but wasn’t a fan of the upkeep so I ripped them off and never went back. Maybe one day I will, but I really like just going in for a pedi. It’s much more relaxing especially post long run.
While I was getting a pedi a lady wheeled a little elderly lady who was dressed in red for the occasion in to get a her nails done. She had a big smile and I could tell she was so happy to be there so I struck up a conversation with them.
Seeing her made my day and also miss volunteering. I have a big soft spot for elderly folks. I just love them so much.
Turns out she is 95 and the woman with her was her live in care taker. What a sweetheart! She just got her hair done at another salon and was on her way out to Valentines supper. I joked she had a hot date which made her smile.
I sent Mike a text asking if we could adopt her. You think I’m joking, but I am not. He said no, but to pick up her tab & said Happy Valentines Day.
I LOVE that man!
A happy Valentines Day it was! I left the salon feeling like a million bucks and it wasn’t because of the awesome pedi. It’s the simple things in life folks.
I encourage you to go do something unexpectedly nice for someone today!!
