I had a nice day. My friend got her flowers at work and loved them. She sent me a pic and they were beautiful. I ran a couple errands today and no giving opportunities popped up. But just the fact that I am open to opportunities makes me more conscious about what is going on around me and I also make eye contact and smile at others more and chat if the opportunity is there. Not that I was rude before, but I just feel that aspect is opening up a bit more. This evening I felt well enough to go have dinner with some friends and their son. I have ditched them several times in the last couple months either the day of the dinner invite, minutes prior to the invite, or half way through the evening because I haven't felt well and had to go. They have been uber supportive and I never feel that they find me crazy or weak, or worthy of pity which are some of my fears if I reveal my health challenges to others. They are always clear that there is a standing invitation for me to come hang out for as long or as little time as I would like and that there is no love lost any way it goes. I have been very grateful for that. I hate disappointing people by canceling and some friends get annoyed when I have to cancel last minute which makes me not want to plan anything, ever, but that is another story. Tonight I enjoyed my time with them and had lots of gifts to give while I was there since the mom was coming home from an overnight with work and dad was getting ready to leave for Europe that evening. I occupied the little one while they made dinner and got organized and insisted on doing the dishes which they never let me do but tonight they were very grateful for the help since it was a bit hectic. I also gave the munchkin, who is one and a half, some extra blueberries for dessert when it was he and I at the table while they were pre-occupied. He goes wild for blueberries and had already had a small bowl of them but he looked at me with his blue stained face and made the symbol for 'more' with his hands as he said "mo bluh" I couldn't resist. I told him if would be a little gift for him and I so I went and got the frozen blueberries and we had a dandy time sharing them.
