Thankful for Minor Moments

I am truly thankful for minor moments of grace and I am going to share them with you now.  Today I tried a new gas station because the ‘price was right.’  The man in charge greeted me and answered a few questions.  I was in and out in minutes. I saved money and the car is set for the week.

I ran into Sam’s Club for fruits and vegetables.   Used the self check and a clerk volunteered to help me.   Bingo, I was done in a few minutes, rolled the cart across the parking lot, loaded the car and took off.

Next I stopped at the local Post Office.   The parking lot was empty.  Only one other car with mine.  What?  I walked in and saw the other person at the mail drop so I walked in and asked the clerk if they were open.   He answered, “Oh yes, just no one if here.”   Wow, usually the line is out the door, so I was able to mail two out-of-town packages!  Even bought some stamps.

Praise God, these seemingly unusual gifts  of ease in getting chores done were such a blessing to me.  I got to the office and since time was on my side, I pulled out the Christmas decorations and set up the tree.   I felt an excitement to get it all completely finished.   It was only 9:45 am and I was able to proceed with the scheduled appointments.

I made a call to check on an order of CD’s I had placed 3 weeks ago.   The man saw the order on his side and said they had a glitch.   He apologized refunded the payment and then gave me a lesser price on the cost of the items.  Wow, now that’s service!

In addition to being thankful for family and friends, I treasure having a home and business, and times like this morning!  I don’t think these things are random, rather a gift from God.   I hope you have some of these random moments of joy that pop up for you.  I think they exist and often we don’t recognize them!

Blessings to all as you go into the Holiday Season.   May you have many good times peppered into your days!
