Happy AND marshmallows


I am so completely happy today.

This morning began at work with a video call that brought such amazing news.  I tried very hard to pay attention, but it’s hard to do when looking at someone who is one of your favorite people on the planet.

You would think that would be enough happy for the day (and it is – more than enough.)  But, today was also Thanksgiving feast day at work.

All day long the smell of roast turkey permeated every corner of the office.

I probably heard ‘Oh my God, that smell is making me so hungry!’ at least half a dozen times as people passed by my room.  I was responsible for another six of those comments.

When it finally came time to sit down together – like the family we are – plates were piled high.

Everyone had brought a dish (except me, I volunteered to clean up afterward.)

I made an amazing discovery as I took my first forkful.

Marshmallow goes with EVERYTHING!

The candied yams had mingled with the pasta – zucchini – turkey – cranberries and mashed potatoes.

The Ghostbusters were on to something.



There wasn’t anything on my plate that wasn’t elevated to a new and amazing level with the sticky sweet marshmallow on it.

So my day ended the way it began – very sweet.

And now, as I told my friends, I’m rolling around the house like a bloated tick.  Stuffed and happy and smiling.

Happy Tuesday everyone.
