1. When I came home from work I had a package from Germany waiting for me. Chocolates with schnaps, sauce mixes, cookies from scratch and something to survive the Florida winters with. Whenever I get these packages, I cut the tape on the box very slowly because I can feel my heart get excited and warm.
2. We are having two of our best friends over tonight for a sleepover. They are moving soon, which has been giving me mixed feelings. These two got me through the majority of my husbands deployments while being in a foreign country.. some of my hardest times I’ve spent watching movies for distraction on their couch and sleeping on their guest bed. They’ve fed me, made me laugh when I didn’t feel like laughing, helped me pick up my now 80lbs puppy from another state, lent me an ear and a hand more times than I can count. The military life is funny that way.. you spend excessive amounts of time with good friends, learn to love them and make them your family. But one day you have to let them go somewhere new.. somewhere you can travel to and visit in the near future. I like to look at it as more places I’m going to get to see.
3. I like the smell of limes and cilantro.
What three things made your heart warm today?
