Some People Make Up for Jerkface

My darling Lydia's mother is an angel straight from heaven.  I've been the beneficiary of her kindness for quite some time now, because I work with two of her girls at church--Lydia, of course, and Lydia's 13-year-old sister.  She does something that is so simple and yet so admirable.  She says. nice. things.  When I sent Lydia a card, Lydia's mum told me how excited Lydia was to receive it.  When I recounted a funny story at church, her mother told me about her 13-year-old daughter's positive reaction to it.  She just called to tell me she's sad that we're moving because she loves me and will miss me.  Every time I speak to her I come away feeling nicer myself and resolving to say the nice things I think.  She's been a real bright spot for me in Scotland (and it doesn't hurt that she says all her nice things in a lovely Glaswegian accent).

She also wished me a happy trip, because we're flying to Sweden tomorrow.  EARLY.  We'll be waking up around 2:45 to make it to the airport on time.  Just a bit more packing today and a bit more watching of Swedish Chef videos, and we should be all set to go.

I love the Swedish Chef! However, we have Swedish friends who say the sing-songy sound of the Chef is more Norwegian then Swedish in speech. Let me know what your opinion is.

My Swedish adventure today will be going to Ikea to find an inexpensive blanket for the nursery kiddies to sit upon during singing time. I think your Swedish adventure is better.

Have a fun trip!
