Heartwarming Quote of the Day

While talking on the phone with my brother, Dan, this morning, I was in the middle of asking him a question regarding law firms, and out of the blue, he interrupted with a small laugh and a “You are so awesome; I love you, Lori.”

I don’t think he’s uttered anything remotely similar since he passed the age of four, and it kind of floored me. In fact, I was so taken aback, I asked him if I’d said something (typically) stupid, thus prompting his sudden show of seemingly amused affection. Everyone loves a dingbat, don’t you know. But he only laughed again and said, “No, no way. You’re just awesome, is all. Go ahead with your question.”

I can’t tell you how long it’s been since anyone other than my kids have expressed such sentiments...

Just had to post that, because, um, it made me feel good.

Even though everyone knows you are so very awesome, it must have been really nice to hear it out of the blue that way. Cool!
