This place. AmIright? I'm itching for summer already. I'm also just plain itching because my skin is stretching and I have too much estrogen, but that's a tale for another day.
Yesterday I woke up and I could tell right away that if I stayed home and watched TV or computed all day, that I'd feel really sick. So I decided I needed to get out of the house. I headed out around 9, picked up some breakfast at McD's, then ran to Target for some toilet paper. Because toilet paper is not like milk, where you can survive without it for another day or two. Then I got this feeling that I should go see Conrad. I drove up to his work, just to see if he was there, and I saw his truck. Then I saw him. He looked like he was having a rough morning. He saw me drive up and his face lightened. He got in the car and we chatted and kissed for a minute or two. Then I got out of the car and left.
His proverbial cloud had been lifted, simply by seeing a happy, loving face. I was thinking later about the initial feeling I had, "Go visit your love." Was that intuition? Was it the spirit telling me he needed me to make him feel better? Was I just guessing? Did baby want to be near Daddy (just kidding)? Whatever it was, I'm glad I followed the prompting.
You hear stories about people who followed promptings and ended up saving someone's life or avoiding disaster, but what about those small, every-day promptings we all have that just tell us to help someone, or call someone, or visit someone? Those are equally huge in a lot of ways. Conrad said my little surprise drop-in was totally what he needed. I'm glad I was able to influence his mood positively (sometimes, as wives, we may not always be "lifters").
Have you ever had an experience where you followed a feeling that ended up helping someone? Have you ever been on the receiving end of a prompting? Tell me about it in the comments!
