My lady and I are tired this week. We have been working really hard to get the message of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! out and like everyone, we have our good days and we have our bad days. We would appreciate all good thoughts coming our way, some people call them prayers, I call them good thoughts.
One of my favorite things to do (and you’re going to laugh at this, but hang in there with me, because it’s not a male thing) is to go shopping. Linda is actually the one that really shops, I’m just really in the store. In my book, You’re Amazing, I am essentially saying that we are all the same, we have the same hopes, the same dreams, the same concerns.
So with that in mind, I love to go into the stores and eavesdrop on what people in the store are saying to one another. People are awesome. Let me tell you about the time when I was walking down an aisle and a man and his son, who was around 4 years old, were walking towards me. The little boy saw something on the shelf and he ran over and grabbed it saying, “Daddy, Daddy, can I have two of these?” The Dad promptly said, “No you can’t have two.” So I interjected myself into the conversation. By the time I started to speak, the Dad and I were standing shoulder to shoulder next to each other getting something off the same shelf. So in a childlike voice, not looking at him, I said “Can I have just one?” He told me I couldn’t have one either, and we both cracked up.
This is just one incident, so the shopping saga will continue with other stories and events. As always, I welcome your stories and comments. If you would like to follow my blog, please click on the plus sign in the upper left corner of this page. See you next week!
