bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life

Today was just a great day!

I met a friend for breakfast and she gave me a wonderful gift from the MOPS group that I used to be the Coordinator of, then MOPPETS Coordinator, then a caregiver.  They all chipped in and gave me a gift card to PF Chang’s, money for a sitter and a gift card to STL Bread.  Plus, a darling coffee mug that says, “This is God.  I will be handling all your problems today.  I will not need your help, so have a good day.  I love you!”  (sniff)

While I was waiting for her, I kept looking at this woman at the table across from me. She looked familiar.  I thought she might be the mother of one of my friends in Kindergarten.  I finally said, “I’m sorry I’ve been staring at you, but are you by chance Jenny Russell’s mom?”  She looked at me said, “Yes…”  I said, “I’m Michelle Wells!”  She squealed and jumped out of her chair and we hugged and hugged.  Wow.  That was a great way to start my day.

Then, I had a great therapy session.  I have an excellent outlook on life and my diagnosis and how to handle it.  YES!

Then, I spent time with my folks.  Always a pleasure.

When I came home, I went on Facebook and found one of my very favorite students from when I taught 2nd grade umpteen years ago.  I contacted her and she wrote back right away and was so glad to hear from me.  She now lives and works in Washington DC after graduating from Auburn a few years ago.  (I’m not telling how many, but it wasn’t last year…)

Now, I am writing this as the family takes turns on Guitar Hero III.  We are having a great time!  (Well, except my daughter, who is just mad because she had to come home from her friend’s house at 8:15.  I know.  We’re tyrants)

Here’s wishing that tomorrow is have half as good a day for you as I’ve had today.
