When I started aplaceforthoughts.com I was blessed to cross paths with some beautiful people. Betsy Henry was one of the first few and today I am grateful for her continued support and friendship. Betsy’s site, The Zen Mama’s blog, is peaceful and encouraging. She shares so much with all of us. She reminds us of the benefits of laughter and of smiling. She encourages us to let go of worry. She talks about parenting, acceptance, gratitude, peace, love, compassion and so much more.

Betsy has published two books. How To Be A Zen Mama and The Zen Mama’s Book of Quotes and I am happy to say that they both have a place on my nightstand. Shortly after meeting Betsy I ordered How To Be a Zen Mama and loved it! When I found out that her book of quotes was in the works I just knew I’d have to have a copy! Although I don’t use as many quotes as Betsy, I am quite the quote fan myself.

In October I shared this story. Betsy’s response? {This post gave me the chills! I so believe in angels. You got a powerful message through your son. I’m going to share this.}

And so she did.

This weekend Betsy posted An Angel Visit. Be sure to stop by to read it and spend some time on her site. You’ll be so glad you did!

Monday night I met a friend for dinner. It had been awhile and it was good to catch up. One of the things that she was talking about was how her mind just doesn’t work anymore and how multi-tasking is a thing of the past for her. I told her how I was experiencing the same thing often. Fast forward to Tuesday morning. I took out my wallet so that I could fill out my bank slip and what did I find?!? The credit card slip from the restaurant the night before. With the gratuity and my signature! Eek! Obviously I left the wrong one with the waitress! How embarrassing!

I called my friend so that she could get a good laugh and made her aware that indeed she was not the only one without a working mind. I can only imagine what our waitress was thinking of me after we left and the names that were probably thrown my way! I called the restaurant right away and the man on the phone knew just who I was (so obviously I was the only one who made that mistake that night!) The good thing is that our waitress has a nice tip now and is probably feeling better about our visit to her table. The bad thing is that I have officially lost my mind! 😉
