we’re a winner

“We’re a Winner” the Impressions

I have a friend where I work who seems to be a pretty good fellow.

I know that he’s an intelligent man…and I’d have to say without reservation that he’s a pretty good fellow.

It makes it easier to work with good people.

I’ve been talking to him a little about this property that we’re buying…and I said something the other day along the lines of “unless I screw up somewhere along the line, things should work out…”.

His response was “YOU AREN’T GOING TO SCREW UP…YOU’RE A MAILMAN.”

Hah! That’s right! I’M A MAILMAN!!

I’m not going to screw this up.

P1000503I listen to satellite radio some while I’m driving around…and this song by the Impressions came on the other day.

“We’re a Winner”.

The song came on the same day my friend told me that I probably wouldn’t fail because I’m a Postman Mailman.

Talk about perfect timing…synchronicity…all things working for those who love the…all of those things.

Not only did I have the “mailman” endorsement …but I also had the Impressions on my side.

The Impressions!! Telling me to “push on”.

That was some pretty timely encouragement from a lot of different angles.

Then in the afternoon, I went to talk to the folks at the bank….and it looks like they might be able to help us get financing.

Facilitation…finally.

And then…check this part out…it gets even better…WE WENT TO A THRIFT STORE!!!

I’m kidding about the order of importance….more was going on…just wait for it…wait for it….NOW!!!

We picked up MY BIG GIRL…my big little girl…from college after she finished her first year of school.

All in all, I’d have to say that it was a pretty darn good day.

P1000537Nothing ever really happens that’s all that bad. That is a blessing, for sure. “Bad things” happen to everybody…and my perspective may be a little skewed or something…but not a lot of “bad” happens to us.

I hope that we can continue that thread for a while.

So if “not a lot of bad” is happening…something else must be happening to fill the void.

I guess that what I’m thinking is that there’s good to be found when I remember to appreciate.

I could be bitching that MY SHOE IS FALLING APART!!!! DANGIT…MY THRIFT STORE SHOE IS FALLING APART AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF!!! WHAT A RIPOFF!!!

I could always find something to bitch about. I like things “just so”, too, sometimes.

But….DANGIT!!! Sometimes things just feel good…cool air and hot coffee, a quiet house….and everybody home again for a while.

That’s something to be happy about.

That’s a reason to notice and appreciate my breathing.P1000546
