To Someone With A Pair Of Cool Shoes

Good afternoon everyone! The weather has been very wintery lately. Two weekends ago (three weekends?) the weather was absolutely beautiful. In some places of Ohio it was in the 60s! Here in Oxford it was a beautiful low 50 degrees. For 2 days straight! It was absolutely incredible! But lately, as you all know, it has been ridiculously cold. So cold that being outside for more than 15 minutes put you at risk for frost bite. Then, Friday night and Saturday morning, we got a ridiculous amount of snow. But sufficed to say, we are all ready for spring.

When the weather is this sucky, its nice to have those little shiny moments that make it better. Early last week I was sitting in the student center eating lunch when someone knocked on the table in front of me, told me they liked my shoes, placed an envelope on the table and walked away. I had never seen this person before and don't know if I ever will again. The envelope read: "To: someone with a pair of cool shoes." (Incase you're wondering, I was wearing my pink Coach rain boots.)

I open up the envelope to find some very cute stationary and a note written in purple pen. The note reads:

"Dear Person with cool shoes;

I don't know you, but your shoes must be really nice if you're getting this. This is just a letter to remind you that you're fantastic. No matter what is happening in your life at the moment, I hope you remember how great you are! You deserve a wonderful semester and I hope this brightens your day a bit. Sorry for the crappy handwriting, but hey! Purple pen, so it makes it better. Anyways, whatever stresses you have, just breathe and be awesome. It'll all be okay, snow/cold weather doesn't last forever, so neither do bad days. Sounded super cheesy, but I hope you appreciate the thought. If you're having a boring dat at least you can at least say you got a random letter. Doesn't happen everyday, does it? Unless it does for you, which would be awesome... But with shoes like those I wouldn't be surprised!

Best Wished, LVT."

LVT, I know not who you are, but that was quite the addition to my day. Thank you for your generosity, thinking of others, and making the effort to improve other's days. 

Until next time, my lovelies...
