MY DAY: Unexpected sharing of joy

I love those moments in one’s day when joy unexpectedly bursts onto the scene.

A contractor for Vectren came to do a safety inspection, and she was the NICEST lady.  She walked in, and immediately spied the dogs behind the gate, and went nuts.

She described her two dogs at home, and that she recently had to put down her 13 year old dog.  As we passed through the living room, she looked at the photograph-collage on the wall, and promptly noticed there were two other dogs – Flyer and Navi.  I explained what happened, and the lady was in tears.

We had the best time chatting about our dogs.

The Vectren representative arrived at 2:50 PM, and left at 3:15 PM.  The pipes were deemed to be in excellent condition, and she spent some time petting the kids.  

I like these days when sweet people unexpectedly trip across your path, and share some joy.  It is a cold, rainy/snowy, dreary day, and she certainly brought in a bundle of sunshine to warm, and brighten the day.

We had the best time. The lady said she loved our neighborhood because of all the really sweet people, and that my neighbor lady, Kay, wanted to give her starts of some plants.
