Long day, even though it was sunny and warm I was starting to wind down, feeling a little weary. One last stop to find something for dinner at Lund’s in Highland Park. Ran in, found what I needed and was checking out.
Paper or plastic, said the happiest grocery bagger I had ever met. Madeline was smiling and cheerful.
Then she asked a question, “what was the best part of my day”? Huh? For a minute I felt like on was on the spot — what do I say? Then I was quickly trying to run through my day — nothing spectacular — I was panicked — what should I say? Then I blurted out, “I made 12 dozen cookies and a coffee cake.” Why? For the goodie bags for the hotel guests for son’s up-coming wedding and my grandson’s visit on Friday. Whew!
I told Madeline what a great question — we should all ask ourselves that question every day. Nothing spectacular, but very thankful for every day.
So thank you Madeline — you are doing a great job one customer at a time!

Erica (from Minneapolis) and her two children were on their way home from Como Zoo. I was walking down the street toward my residence when it started to rain and hail. She turned her car around and pulled up alongside of me, smiled at me, and asked if I wanted a ride home.
There really are Angels on this Earth. I gratefully accepted the ride home, and truly appreciate her kindness.

Sainted to the St. Paul St. Patrick’s Association for sponsoring our first “Parade” in over a year. We were lucky enough to get a spot in the event and five of my grandchildren were able to get out and experience a fun event on a sunny day.
A HUGE Sainted to the St. Paul Fire Department for being there and handing out a very generous gift bag full of smoke and CO2 Detectors, kitchen hood fire suppressors, tools and information … what we can’t use will be forwarded to those who need them.
Thanks for your part in protecting all of us.
Happy St. Pat’s Day to all!
Peg Sweeney, Eagan
