“I’m so happy you’re happy… that’s lovely.”

And that’s all she said.

A few weeks ago I met my college roommate for dinner. It was wonderful: lots of laughs, lots of memories and lots of smiles.

As we got up to leave the restaurant, she took one look at me, gave me a huge hug and said, “Ame, after all you’ve been through… I’m so happy you’re happy… That’s lovely.”

And with those few words I started to tear up because it is lovely when you are living your passion by helping people, making them smile and teaching them that’s there’s more to life than kale.

I mean, come on now. There’s collard greens, too. Hehe.

It’s just simply lovely.

Isn’t it?

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing about your day/week. And I LOVE the comment–“there is more to life than Kale–I mean, come on, now. There’s collard greens too.” So true. So funny.
