That was my yesterday.
After the world's longest day in the office, I was stressed and desperate for an escape. I left my office in such a whirlwind, that it was only until I got a few miles from home that I realized I left my person locked in my office... downtown.. a 45 minute commute away.
This is where I lost it. On any normal day I would've considered it no big deal and moved right along. Yesterday was not normal. As soon as I exited the highway my gas light went on. I had also planned to pick-up some kind of healthy dinner due to my fridge being pretty desolate.
The problem? I left all my money at work. Awesome.
So there I was, all stressed out with an empty car and an empty tummy. After thinking for a few minutes I sent BF the world's most pathetic text, and he called me right away. His first question made me melt...
"What can I do to help make this better?"
Luckily enough, he was having guys night about a half mile from my Weight Watchers meeting, so I drove over to get some help.
He promptly met me in the parking lot with a sweet smile and sympathetic brown eyes. Without a moment of hesitation he told me to take his credit card, fill up my car and get something for my grumbly tummy.
Well naturally... I started bawling. Mascara went everywhere, sniffles, the whole nine yards. The poor boy didn't know what kind of raw emotions and overly dramatic stories were coming his way.
But do you know what? He didn't try to offer advice or suggestions, he just held me and let me cry it all out.
I'm pretty sure his GAP hoodie is covered in mascara residue today, but I sure love that man. He is my sunshine and he consistently inspires me to be a better, kinder, more selfless person every single day. I am so thankful that he's my buddy.
Who is your sunshine today?
Have you thanked them for making you smile?
Thanks for being you, buddy. Love you.
