Sometimes you are the windshield..........

sometimes you are the bug!

This week I am the WINDSHIELD!!

If you can just hang on thru the days, weeks or months that you feel like you are the bug

you will eventually get to be the windshield.

For Kate's birthday I got her tickets to go see K.D.Lang ....and for those of you that don't know who she is, you are missing out on some great music. I have been listening to this womyn's music for about 20 years now. It never gets never sounds the same. She can make you melt or she can get you up and dancing. Soooooooooo we go to the concert, have a WONDERFUL time. It is threatening rain and it is 9:30 pm. Kate was exhausted as was I. We were out on a "school nite" so we didn't stay for the 2nd portion of the evening which was Lyle Lovett...not real big fans. We start walking out- Kate nudges me.- I look over and it is K.D. and a small group of womyn. I think I froze and I know everything went in slow motion!

We walk over, I had a t shirt i bought over my shoulder- Kate is prompting me to get it signed...everything is going in slow motion- I can't even get words out to ask her to sign my shirt.

I must have looked like a deer caught in the headlights.

K.D. actually takes my t shirt from me, I hold it and she asked me to stretch it out so she could sign it.

She then held out her hand to shake mine....I uttered "you are amazing" (or at least I hope that is the thought that came out loud" we turned and walked (or I think I was floating) out.

How many of you have a top 5 list?? I have her on MINE!!!!

That was just an amazing, wonderful, won't forget moment!

I was floating so much, when we got home and Kate pointed out that I had left my car home with all my windows down (and it had stormed hard for a few hours). It was so soaked in my car I would need towels to sit in my seat in the morning. I DIDN'T even care, I just blew it off and chalked it up. (I know on another given night, bad words would have been flying out of my mouth!)

So I got a giddy 20 year old moment the other night, felt good, was needed. Life is good! Just need to hold onto moments like that to get thru the rest of the crap sometimes.

So if you are the bug right now......hold on for the will end!

    How cool was that? It's always that mix of fun/embarrassed/starstruck that can carry you through the whole week.
    Hope you're still giggling to yourself.
    Hope people look at you funny when you realize that you've been smiling like a loon while in line at the wawa.
    Hope you're the windshield for a long while. You deserve it.
