Here is my happy story for the week. Yesterday I went to lunch with a couple of friends. We went to a Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant, and this was my fortune:
Just as a disclaimer, while I like the idea of fortunes, I try hard not to put too much stock into them. After all, they’re just fun little things I’m certain the fortune cookie people make up for people to enjoy. Sometimes, I like the idea of them though, and the ones I like the most, I hold onto.
Since I loved the idea of this one, I kept it, figuring I’d hear good news of one sort or another in the next few days, and that would be that.
Little did I know what my wonderful roommates had in store. . .
We were having a roommate/friend dinner at Mazza in downtown Salt Lake City yesterday. It’s a beautiful Middle Eastern restaurant, in case you’re wondering, but on the whole, I thought it was only so-so for quite a few reasons. But, I digress.
What I didn’t know is that this was a “celebrate Tammy” dinner. It was a very lovely surprise for me, especially on a day when I was feeling a little blue. As part of this dinner, my wonderful roommates, whom I truly love and appreciate more than words can express, gave me this.
And inside I found this beautiful butterfly necklace.
For anyone who doesn’t know, butterflies are a symbol of my niece who passed away, so I look for them wherever I go. And my roommates know this, which makes their thoughtful gift even kinder.
Who knew fortunes could come true in such a delightful way? Thanks to my wonderful roommates are an important part of my life and help it be as wonderful as it is.
