One of THOSE days

Yesterday was one of those days.

No, not one of those days… you know, the kind that start off badly and get worse and worse as the day progresses (now don’t tell me you haven’t had a few of those days!).

No, yesterday was one of THOSE days, a “made of win” day. Yesterday was the kind of day all crammed full of goodness, where one lovely thing happens early on, followed shortly thereafter by something wonderful, then something much anticipated, then something thrilling, then something affirming, then a reward, then a gift… until by the end of the day what started as fun little snowball rolling down a hill finishes up as a great big mass of sparkling goodness.

I could hardly bring myself to go to sleep!

Days like yesterday are rare. Oh, there are plenty of good days, lots of pleasant days, and some where it’s enough that nothing major went wrong! But days where small joys are handed to you over and over until you can no longer hold them all in your hands are so rare, and so very precious.

I am grateful for the gift of yesterday, and will hold it in my heart next time I have one of those days.

Life is so good.
