A great day indeed!

Brace yourselves, folks. I just had something extraordinary happen to me today and I am so excited I am on the verge of tears. I just got back from the grocery store and I haven't even put the food away yet. I am so anxious to share this with somebody and Tom is at school.

Someone talked to me, and it MADE. MY. DAY. As in, out on the sidewalk, a total stranger, actually talked to me. It was this cute young Jewish mom. She has said shalom to me a time or two, which always makes my day, but today she actually started up a conversation. It made me feel like such a normal person here, instead of an outcast. It's a great day.

A great day indeed.

Amy reading your blogs always reminds me that I need to be a little more outgoing and kind! I forget that sometimes people really might like a little "hello" or "shalom" depending on the case. :)

That is so cool! Isn't it a good feeling when "the little things" make such a big difference?
