How a great day got even better....

Imagine! a second post for the day..from me of all people. The day is only half over and already it has been a perfectly wonderful day. First, I visited with my mom, who wasn't half as agitated as she has been the past few days. Once she realized who I was, she was so happy to see me and we had a lovely visit- working on her word puzzles and preparing for lunch. Menu sounded pretty good to me- crab cakes, mashed potatoes and sugar snap peas. I saw a lovely fresh watermelon on the kitchen island, and Caroline (one of the staff) told me there were a few chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge- and to go steal one before she ate them all herself,lol!
After leaving Mom, I took a chance a friend up the road might be home and drove over to see. I was glad to see both she and her DH were both in, and we got to have a long overdue catch up. A few weeks ago, I accidentally found out that she was diagnosed with cancer and I was a bit overwhelmed as to how to broach the subject with her. We both lead hectic lives and hadn't talked to each other for some time. Happily, the cancer was caught at stage 1 (by a fluke!) and she is now cancer free. She has had some problems due to the needed reconstruction- leading to four more surgeries, but all in all she is doing well and is in high spirits. I am so happy I decided to "just go over".
When I got home I wanted to answer some emails from this morning and found one announcing I'd won a giveaway!
Mom doing well, today. Friend's health scare successfully treated. Being gifted with generosity. I'd say it's been a fabulous day!
May yours be just as wonderful.
