Oh My Goodness! Today was a fantastic day in my Rosie world! Something very exciting happened to me and I'm going to share it with you! Of course, first let me say that I completed another day of my February Quests.
Flossing & Exercise
Today I awoke like any other day this month and flossed my teeth, then headed downstairs to exercise. I put on my knee brace and walked another 30 minutes on the treadmill. My knee is feeling much better, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to try running again either tomorrow or Monday.
Yesterday I shared with you my excitement about a new book just out by my favorite blogger, Melanie Shankle, author of the Big Mama Blog and Sparkly Green Earrings. While I have been reading her blog for years, I have never met her.
However, after publishing yesterday's post, I decided to post a link to my Sparkly Green Earrings post on her fan Facebook page. Of course, after seeing the many many comments already posted to her page, I didn't really think she would see mine.
So today was just another ordinary day until...
I got a response from Big Mama! I was so excited because she not only read my blog, but she said she loved it! Crazy! I'm not really one to get excited about stars. I don't have a long list of celebrities I want to meet in this lifetime, but I do have a short list of people that have touched my life in a special way that I would one day love to meet and Melanie Shankle is one of them!
To think that I have enjoyed her wonderful writings for years and today she read something I wrote!
Hubby and the Engineer were so excited for me that we all agreed we needed to celebrate over Mexican food for lunch. I was so touched by their excitement. I could see in their eyes that they got what this meant to me. And as we sat there enjoying our lunch and the moment, laughing, eyes shining, sharing in the surprise of this unexpected event, I felt so...loved.
