Saturday:) Sending some More Angels

I couldn’t get my iPhone to send this post, so I am late. It’s after midnight. But, I did write this before midnight, the little downloading symbol kept churning and turning, but nothing happened. Technology, not my friend!

I didn’t have a ride from the airport Saturday morning. I was in a panic. I called a couple drivers. No one was available or called me back. I figured I’d just use Uber, Out of the clear blue, my friend, Linda Grossman, (World’s greatest realtor) texted me and asked how I was holding up and did I need a ride from the airport? God sends me angels.

My sister took me to O’Hare this morning for my flight back home. I feel like I’ve been gone more than I’ve been home. Everything went smoothly. When I sat at the airport, Linda texted me, “I’ve got a couple ticket for a concert tonight at 7 at Guitar Sanctuary, do you want to go with me?” I thought, why not. A diversion would be good.

Linda picked me up at DFW, and dropped me off at home. I went over to my neighbor Diane’s to pick up my mail, and told her my plans. Her husband looked up who was playing at the venue tonight. John Waite. A sold put concert. They were jealous, and I had no idea who that was…until I hear some of the songs. Oh my!

I took a shower, looked in my closet to see what I might wear, and there, on the carpet was…. a lucky penny. Seriously…. Mom telling me to go, have fun, enjoy life, listen to some music and have a glass of wine.

Linda picked me up around 7. Great concert. We sat with a young man named David, with the most adorable Scottish accent. We became instant friends. The concert was awesome!!!!

John Waite, oh my goodness! Songs that I remembered and sang along with…

Back on my feet again, Missing you, Change, Every time I think of you, and more…

Linda and I stopped at Zin Zen around the corner for a glass of wine and listen to a young couple playing some popular music. The diversion, conversation, and friendship was what I needed. David joined us. It was a lovely night.

It’s after 1 am. I’m tired, but happy. Life is good!
