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!
