By now you’ll have realised that I am a tad quirky and I have several encounters that I consider strange. Lord alone knows what many of you think about them ...
But, here is another one.
I was not invited to an event. I went. I had a wonderful time. The hosts were more than happy for me to be there ... seriously.
This is why ...
A birthday party was arranged. Guests were invited and the venue was prepared. I knew all about it, so I went along at the time that I knew it would start.
Hours later, after much fun, laughter, dancing, singing and playing had taken place, I left.
The following day I received a series of phone calls from the hosts, they were thanking me for being there,
for their son’s first birthday party. I smiled and thanked them for the invitation and started to explain that I had had a great time.
They stopped me and said, “You weren’t invited ...” I didn’t know what was coming next but the laughter in the voice told me it was nothing to be ashamed of, “You don’t need to be invited,” the baby’s mother continued. “You are the same as us, you are family, we are one.” I laughed again and thanked her, but she hadn’t finished, “We will never invite you to anything as this is your home as well, you can come and go as you please. You helped us to plan it, without you it would not have been such a great success. You always make things wonderful. You play such a big part in our lives. We are one, sister, we are one!”
So, there you have it. I was not invited to an event. I went. I had a wonderful time.
