I am totally embarrassed, still. Hours after this took place, I still feel blushed. The boys and I were at the grocery store, when we turned down the aisle and ran into someone I've known for over 10 years, but haven't seen in a long time. So aloud (in my Heather-sort-of-way) I proclaimed, "Hi Allen!!!!" We had a brief, exchange & went our separate ways. Moments later, I realized two things. One, is name isn't Allen (it's David).  Two, I had a booger in my nose. So how stupid do I feel seeing someone I haven't seen in years, getting his name wrong and having an obstruction in my left nostril?? Here's the simple lesson: the embarrassing moment gave me a great reason to laugh. I'm in a season with a lot of stress around me & if I'm not careful the stress will become me. Laughter, joy, smiling--these human functions keep it real & keeps the body healthy. I hope you are laughing. Cause if you are, you are really, truly living.

You knocked a homerun on that visit with Allen, I mean David (lol)! And to think you had a nose obstruction as well is pretty much a memorable moment for David. Great job Heather :):)
