When I first saw this picture, I had no clue where Susanne took it. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why and where these numbers could be painted. Then she explained and showed me: Zurich airport parking lot, 6th floor, parking space #6. It’s where she had parked when picking me up from the airport last week.
Six is my favorite number. This day, she had driven to the 6th floor and found an empty spot in space #7, but as she was getting out, the car next to her left. So she got back into the car to re-park in #6. Happy as she was, she even took a picture to show me later 🙂
When she told me the story, we laughed at her silliness and I gave her a big hug. But that innocent part of me felt more than just her fleeting thoughts. It’s the simple things in life that bring me joy – her thinking of me, re-parking the car, taking a picture, sharing, laughing… I was in her thoughts. I was with her. What else could I ask for?
Perhaps it’s a small thing, but today it’s these moments in life that make me smile and feel special. I used to take them for granted, but that’s the past. Today it’s the 6-6’s… Simple, no? Lucky, no? Yes.
