It's Friday and time for The Girl Next Door Grows Up's meme - Feel Good Friday. Today I have chosen to write about something that happened this week that made me happy.
Yesterday, Hayden and I foolishly ventured out to Wal-Mart. Why foolishly you may ask…
Answer: Because as we left, it was VERY cloudy, lightly raining, and the forecast called for more rain. I figured it wouldn’t get worse - and it was only drizzling. I assumed we wouldn’t get caught in the rain. I was wrong.
So we go to Wal-Mart, do our shopping, and as we near the automatic doors to exit the building I realize that it is POURING. We are not talking about a little rain. Oh no. This is a full-out, drenching rain.
Great. So now I am pushing the cart as I run through/in the rain to my car. I get to the car and notice a “cart worker” nearby. He quickly approaches us and asks if he can help put my groceries in my car. I said, “yes.” So as I unfastened Hayden from the cart and placed him in his car seat, this kind, young man put my groceries in my car (and then took my cart back to the cart corral for me).
He did not have to do that. It was not his job to unload my groceries for me (in the rain). But he did. And that really made me smile. I truly appreciated his simple gesture of goodwill.
So thank you Wal-Mart “cart worker,” you made my “Feel Good Friday.”
My thanks again to 'The Girl' and her meme. Feeling good on Friday is a great way to end the week!
