A couple strolled hand & hand walking past the boutique window.  The lady spotted a pretty white cotton nightgown on a mannequin and commented "oh, I love that pretty nightie" (followed by a big sigh). The gentleman took "mental note" of what his sweetie said and they continued on with their stroll. When the opportunity presented itself, the gentleman snuck away and visited the shop owner to see if he could purchase the pretty white gown in the window. As luck would have it, it was the perfect size, the gown was carefully wrapped in pretty tissue, and the gentleman paid for his prized purchase.  A few days, later the couple revisited the boutique and thanked the shop owner, the gift was perfect, the lady felt special & loved and the gentleman.....rather proud of himself (to say the least) !

I came across these words and it reminded me to take a moment and be thankful. My son who has been working very hard towards his goal this past year was faced with some of life's disappointments. As his Mom, all I could do was offer words of encouragement that things would turn around for him. He needed to be patient. 

Then a phone call changed it all (at least for now) and he was offered a challenging job in another Province.  He would need lots of warm clothes, layers of warm clothes, and some courage as he faced new challenges.  I am so proud of my son, he has achieved so much in his young life, and he has become wise beyond his years.  I am so thankful......
