Make Someones Day

Hi everyone,

Your not going to believe what came to me, at my house! Remember James ParkerJames Parker Art painted my portrait? Well, here is is! It arrived in the cutest box, addressed to me!

Mr James , Tacobelle and Pokey mailed it from Texas, where the Blue Bonnets bloom! Wow, how sweet is that?

Look- it looks exactly like me . Can you imagine how it makes my moms and me feel? Well we feel thankful! We found a little frame for it, and decided it was time for a celebration,,,,, so more flowers came into the house! This is our celebration table where we put special things.

I wanted to get a close up view, as I was afraid an imposter was in my house. And, I was expecting it to wag its tail at me., or woof! And then I reazied it was me. It was not a reflection at all, like the tide pools at the Sea, it was a portrait. It made me think of Manon The Blog of Manon Doyle , who says words so beautifully and said she found herself.

And now, I have found me- right here. ( I am not sure that is what she ment, I am still thinking about it. )

This is the letter Mr James Parker sent to me, so personal. I will treasure it forever.

Do you see how I am looking so inconspicuous (is that spelled right?) It made me think of how sometimes, someone will come out of the blue when you are not expecting them, and they lend a hand or make your day in some small way.

My moms had a couple of times in the last week when " Someone made their Day"

First time was at the burger drive in window, and mommie had forgot to order fries with her sandwich, so when they got up to the pay window, mama explained we were sorry, but we forgot to order fries and could we do it then? The nice girl- said no problem at all, and just gave it to mommie for free! We were not expecting that at all.

The next person to "make our day" was at Home Depot. Mommie was buying big timbers and she had them on a little grocery cart- 6 timbers. All was ok, until going over the bumps in the parking lot, and then you can imagine- the wheels all went kitty wampest and the timbers started hitting the ground. Mommie was stopping traffic as she struggeled to pick the heavy, monsters up off the ground,,,, and to the rescue came a nice man who helped mommie and suggested putting the timbers on a different kind of cart - ment for that purpose. He helped her and then disappeared- just like Superman. He just appeared out of no where, and then was gone.

I try to think of ways I can help "make someones day". I will need to think about it for awhile

And so my friends, my eyes are dropping.

Thank you again Mr James Parker!

Nitey Nite
