I knew it is going to be a good day within the first ten minutes of being awake. I woke without serious congestion and feeling rested. I coughed a few time in the night, but not bad enough to disturb sleep.
I rose, went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth and my hair. Then I slipped on a jacket to take the dogs outside. For some reason I grabbed a jacket that I haven't worn in at least a year, probably two. It's one of those that you keep because you like it, but it doesn't go with anything in your current wardrobe. It is soft and warm, and just felt good for today.
As I walked toward the door with eight little happy feet at my heels, I stuck my hand in the pockets and felt an old receipt folded in half, a bad habit of mine. I stick receipts in the most convenient pocket or pouch in my purse and it stays until I get around to cleaning out whatever area. I pulled it out to throw it away (I'm trying to break the bad habit!), and to my delight, discovered that it wasn't a receipt, but a twenty dollar bill!!
No coughing, only a little congestion, and a little mad money, all in the first few minutes of the day!! I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings!!
