I was at the grocery store tonight picking up supper.
(Sweet Italian Sausage and Pre made mashed potatoes and Steam Fresh corn - in case you wondered : )
I was rushing. It was already 5:00 and everyone was at home STARVING.
All the carts were gone except for the wheel chair cart and the double seated toddler cart.
I hate that toddler cart. It is SO huge!
My kidget wasn't even with me, but I needed something fast so I grabbed it.
I was hurrying down the aisles bumping into things because the cart was so ginormous...
my worst nightmare-
An elderly couple was in front of me and they were taking up the whole aisle.
I really like older people, but today, I wasn't feeling friendly.
I just wanted to get home and feed my hungry people : ).
In my head I was definitely complaining about these SLOW people.
And then, something happened.
The older man turned around and smiled at me.
His wife turned around and smiled too.
They asked me where the child that was supposed to be in the cart was.
They asked me about our dinner.
They asked me if I liked the grocery store we were in.
They were lonely.
They were lovely.
They asked me if I wanted to pass them.
You know what?
I didn't want to pass them anymore.
I stayed with them for 4 more aisles.
They turned my busy, icky day into something wonderful.
What a beautiful present I received this December day.
I am counting my blessings.
I hope I see them again soon!
Have you had any special blessings come into your life this Holiday season?
