She told me she was on hol­i­day. I said I hoped it had been good so far.

“Oh­hhh,” she said, like she was won­der-struck. “It has been amaaaaaaaz­ing!”

And there was I, think­ing it was just an­other rainy day in Glas­gow!

Some­times the great­est gift vis­i­tors can of­fer us, is a fresh ap­pre­ci­a­tion of all that we al­ready have.
