I was just thinking that. Since I gave up my auto and am home a LOT, getting out now and then is a treat and I depend on friends and daughter to "treat" me. Mostly my one good friend who is so helpful and she's a busy person with her own life, but finds time for me and drives across town to get to me.
Today was an outing with her Wendy's for lunch and a trip to Von's market for a small order I can't get with delivery, stuff from deli section mostly. This trip really made my day, last couple weeks actually. I thanked her via email and just thinking of doing it again and saying something like: You don't realize how much happiness our outing brought me. But then I thought maybe it's overkill with thankfulness.
I believe my nature comes from being born depression era and how little we had and how thankful I was for what we had. ummmm
