Day 25 ~ Something someone told you about yourself that you
will never forget (good or bad)
My Uncle Bobby is a gruff ~ not a mushy gushy guy
or least he never used to be.
I think he has mellowed with age, but I will go back about 20 years or so.
One weekend at the farm, we were all gathered,
more than likely for a meal and conversation.
I was in my late 20’s – pushing at 30 and single.
After supper we were all sitting around
and the conversation went towards relationships,
why was I still single?
I just shrugged my shoulders and said something to the effect
that whoever was going to sweep me off my feet better have a pretty big broom.
My heart had been broken a couple of times and you build that wall around you
a brick higher and a brick deeper each time.
My tough uncle spoke up and said ~ I think that the guy that get’s Lori
will be very lucky ~ she is the total package
smart, pretty, and knows what she wants in life.
Well you could have knocked me over with a feather
good thing I was sitting on the floor at the time.
I think it’s not the things that are said to you,
but who says them that matters most.
It’s the unexpected ~ the surprises in life that put that spring into your step.
