Welcome to Three Thing Thursday, where you're encouraged to share three thoughts on any topic at all-- related, unrelated; important, trivial; random, or with purpose. Remember, three is only a suggestion, one which I rarely even follow myself.
1.I am extremely fortunate to have some truly wonderful friends. Tuesday night after work I stumbled up the steps to find a package from Zabar's waiting for me. It was from my Blog Friends Daryl, Kate and Lauren, and it was filled with the most delicious, beautiful cheeses I've ever seen/eaten. I daresay that was the best package I've ever received. Thank you all so much!
2. That same evening, when I walked in the door clutching my Zabar's box (before I even opened it), I asked my son how his day was. "I got my license today," he said. "You mean you're done with Driver's Ed and we have to fill out some paperwork and go to the DMV and then you get your license?" I asked. "No, I have my license." Well, it's a provisional license, but the point is that as I type this he (in theory) is legally able to drive. Practically speaking there is no spare car for him to drive, but the point is I am now the mother of a teenager who can legally drive. Alone. Serenity now. Thank the stars above for that box of cheese from Zabar's, which I dove head first into upon hearing these
3. Yesterday was a good day in spite of the fact that the calendar says I'm now a year older, 47 years old to be exact. I sure don't feel 47 and find it really difficult to believe that I'm so close to 50. In spite of that, yesterday was great. My present to myself was a day off from the paying job; I heard from people I haven't heard from in a long time; and the day pretty much ended the way this blog post started: with me being very grateful for my friends--and family, even those who are now legally able to drive away from me if the opportunity presents itself.
Now it's your turn to share three (or more) thoughts. Whatever you want. Anything at all.
