Looks like we could use an open thread. Tell me something good. What lifts you after a few days like this?
I shared this story yesterday. I was surprised how much it made my day just a bit better:
I needed one thing from the store today. I even picked the location I thought would be the least busy. When I got to the door, a nice young boy held out a bag with a list stapled to the front. He asked if I wanted to shop for the food bank. I thought about that one thing I needed and said, not today. Thinking I’d write a check later.
Then in a moment of, oh, why not, I turned around and took the bag from him.
It changed my day. Not because I filled a bag with much needed staples for the food bank. Not because that young boy gave me the best smile when I both took the bag and returned it filled.
Nope, it was because every shelf that held the requested items looked like locusts had descended. In a few cases I had to improvise with items I thought would be needed, but weren’t on the list, because the shelves were bare.
If I had not decided to shop for that list, I never would have seen how wonderful every person who walked through King Soopers was today.
(One more video, because I’m quirky like that)
