The letter for today is G and as always the prepared student, I have no idea what G stands for.
I'm going to guess goofy.
According to Alexandra Delis-Abrams, Ph.D. in ABC Feelings: A Learning/Coloring Book, G stands for generous.
"Can you think of a time when you felt generous?
"I bet you felt you were sharing something that was special to you. Did you feel, right then, that your heart was super-big?"

Well, perhaps I was generous today when Dandu and Toothy -
(back when P'Headro was a puppy)
(I think I renamed her, but I can't remember to what) -
came over after looking for apartments in River City.
(Yes, they will be leaving our fair Gold Rush town and going off in search of better community colleges. I am sad they are leaving, but they won't be all that far away.)
Anywho, they came over to get some laundry Dandu left behind.
I was hungry, they were hungry, and I did not not have much to offer from the kitchen of Casa de Refugio.

And even though I have a finite amount of money - I offered to take them out.
We ended up going to Chevy's (Fresh Tex-Mex) with a newspaper coupon - got 8 items and 3 margaritas (not to mention their wonderful salsa and chips) all for $27. I even had enough food to take home to Hold-See.
It was a delightful surprise to get so much for so little.
Dandu put down a $5 for the waitress and I matched it - so she got a $10 tip.
Generosity all around!
Chevy's was generous with their newspaper coupon and $3 margarita Wednesday, I was generous in taking us all out and Dandu and I were generous with the waitress.
Morale of the story -
Generosity pays off and $3 margaritas taste as good as $7.50 ones!
"Can you think of a time when you felt generous? .....
What other feeling can you think of that start with the letter G?"
