Human Highlights: Grandma & The Zoo

Human Highlights is a Sunday tradition at Commode To Joy. It’s a friendly reminder to forgive your human moments, celebrate the highlights, and enjoy life’s little lovelies in the interim.

……………………………………………….

Human Moment: The three of us went to the zoo this morning. While checking out the reptiles in the herpaquarium, we saw a couple and their kids who fall on the spectrum somewhere between acquaintances and friends. Mark and I attended their wedding years ago…six or seven years I’m thinking. As we exchanged hellos, Snarky piped up in the background. You never did send them a wedding gift. 

Snarky’s right. It’s the only wedding I’ve attended without having a gift for the couple (or sending one in the mail)…and I feel like a complete jackass for it. Still.

Also. They sent us a thank you card. For the wedding gift we never sent. I think that makes me a double jackass. Or, at least, a human. They’re now three kids in to their marriage. Is it too late to send one?

Highlight: Did you read my post earlier in the week, “Running Toward Your Happy“? If not, read it. One, because I think it’s really well done (what can I say, I’m biased), and two, because it’s the highlight of my week.

Life’s Little Lovelies: He sat to watch the penguin, I sat to watch him. This is the stuff life is made of.
