A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
Wow! I’m AMAZED!
I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the day. I had to go have an annual diagnostic imaging done. It has been 5 years now of being cancer free. I pray it stays that way.
Before I left, I attached a note to the laundry room door that said I would not be using my scheduled laundry hours today, in case someone wanted to use my time. I know at least one lady who appreciates the extra time.
I drove down island to my appointment. It was a pleasant drive. No problem, except for trying to charge my phone without the the cigarette lighter part being plugged in! A friend had looked at my car and perhaps unplugged everything 😉
When I arrived at the hospital, it seemed that there was no parking to be had. I drove around, hoping someone would be leaving soon. Round once more. Ah! Two people heading for vehicles, a lady and a tall fellow with an interesting beard.
I decided to drive around again to whichever spot opened up first. On my way, I found another spot. I got parked and then the bearded fellow showed up waving a ticket. “This is paid for another 2 hours, if you would like to use it”
Would I? Most certainly! I love the way people do this in this parking lot. It’s not the first time I have been given free parking..
My appointment went smoothly, unlike the last one, which had hurt. This technician was very gentle and there was no pain. She checked the images, communicated with the Doctor to see whether anything further was required. No, all GOOD! YAY!!!!
On my uneventful way home, listening to a mix of praise and worship songs (my taste in music is a bit eclectic) and singing along with complete impunity, I decided I better shop for a few necessities. I had only two things in mind at the time, coffee and a Crystal deodorant.
I stopped at London drugs, found the deodorant, and got a couple of coffees on sale, YAY! I had just received my tax return, so I thought I would take a look around to see whether I could find myself a treat of some sort, with my refund. I really had nothing particular in mind.
I scanned my way through some isles, admiring pretty things and useful things and found myself at the small appliance aisle. Ah, let’s see what they have for convection ovens, I thought. I have wanted one for SOOOO long now.
I stopped to look at what might be one and a sales lady approached. She showed me where to find them, and pointed out a few. I was searching for the one I found originally a few years back that had a special rack for fries. I could not remember the name. At the time, it was too expensive for my budget, but I look for that one every time I browse small appliance ailes. The sales lady helped me look.
All of a sudden, I SAW it! Could not believe it! The saleslady was as happy as I was! We checked it out. Yes! It had the special wire basket for the fries! AND…….it was ON SALE!!! It was HALF the usual price! How COOL was that!
Both the saleslady and I were excited 😉 She carried it proudly to the till as if she had just found a good deal for HERSELF! 🙂
The lady at the till rang up my purchases and informed me that I could have a bottle of free multivitamins with my purchase today. WOOHOOOO! This IS my day!
Well, armed proudly with my new toaster/convection oven, and my other purchases, I made my way home. When I got to my apartment door, I found a note of thanks from a lady who had been glad of the gift of my scheduled laundry time, and a little box of chocolates from another lady who just likes to surprise me every once in a while! How lovely! Two more unexpected surprises!
Wow! How to end a special day! I have been so BLESSED, and now I get to WRITE about it! How good is that?
God is good. I have been a bit on the rough side for a while now and I really needed a day like this. So UPLIFTING! Just one blessing after another. Thank you, whoever prayed for me. I know someone did. You don’t have a day like this every day. My heart is full. Thank You, Lord, for the blessings! \o/
HOPE y’all enjoyed my day right along with me. It was my pleasure to share it 😉
