Today I was reading Cecelia’s daily update on her farm life and I favorited it, as I always do because she is one of my favorites. And I thought “How odd that I’m always in the first spot on her list of favorite stars.
And them my very slow morning brain recognized why and I smiled. At my own stupid brain failure.
On Monday, my co-workers were full of stories of their April Fools day. I had forgotten they love it and I AM glad I took the day off. But I did smile at one of the stories and at their joy in retelling it. One of them took a large paperclip and put it on the copier and then copied it 10 times. She then took those blank sheets with a paperclip image at one side and put them back in the paper stack of the copier/printer. So when people innocently printed something from their computer it showed this paperclip. I liked how clever it was. They spent 10 minutes poking around that copier while she watched. She finally told them. It sparked a prank war I’m glad I missed but I did think her prank was clever and I smiled at her joy in telling it. So, I guess I’m going to have to back down at least partially on my April Fools opinion post of last week.
My smiles this week are representative of my brain being open to enjoying the small moments. To being able to smile at my own cognitive failure moment and being able to enjoy the story told by my friends who were all so full of fun and cheer over their pranks. There are many days when I can do neither, so I’m pleased by the smiles in the small moments.
