A Few Hours = Many Days Payoff

So many wonderful people traveled to participate in Egg Day.
I am genuinely grateful that people shared their time with me.
Jill came from Portland, well not for Egg Day, but she happened to be in town and we took the opportunity to catch up. Lee came up from Cincinnati, Yellow Springs was represented and my brother traveled over an hour to be there. I was touched by everyone generosity with their time and effort to attend.
And then yesterday morning a wonderful thing happened at work. Dave, a co-worker who came to Egg Day, made a point to come to my office in part to thank me for the nice time, which is lovely, also to praise my friend's child's behavior.
He noted that the child who is 10 did very well being patient with my 7 year old. Also that she was generally pleasant and interesting. High praise indeed for any 10 year old. I in turn, passed the nice words to my friend Liz, the child's mother, along with thanking her for sharing part of her day with me.
At the same time Kim sent me an email gushing all manner of kindness but particularly said something sweet about Gena. Of course I had to share with Gena the kind sentiments because what good is a compliment that goes unshared? Considering Gena is on the hunt for new employment she was particularly delighted to know she was able to make such a good first impression. Also, who doesn't like to hear nice things about themselves?
Anyway, there was just a whole host of cascading joy from Egg Day.
Even today, two days later, I'm basking in the glow of positive juju that was intentionally created Sunday.
Really good things across the board. I'm very much looking forward to Egg Day in August. It's the 23rd, so mark your calendar now. I'll be making sausage gravy and biscuits again. If you can't make it, we'll see you September.
