Since I have been busy with my 365 Days of Testimony, my days of praise kind of came to a halt. Today, God gave me a great blessing in three wonderful people who blessed me on what had been a very bad day. I had almost come to tears, I was very hungry, VERY tired......and not even half way through my day when I went to go eat at my favorite Restaurant (of the faster food persuasion). Devon had eaten a huge hot dog from Sams and had a giant drink that he just had to take in with us. We walked in and we were greeted with a happy hello! Jairen, a sweet young woman working the counter made reference to the little fella with the big drink! I explained his need to bring it in and she laughed and told me she thought it was great.......which gave me great relief about bringing in a drink from somewhere else. She quickly fixed my food and at the end I asked her for guacamole. She sweetly explained that it would cost extra to which I just tiredly told her that was fine. She gave me a smile when she then said, "It is definitely a guacamole kind of day!", and boy did she hit the nail on the head! We went to pay and Adrian, a young man with whom I have seen there several times before, was so helpful and kind as I am sure he noticed that I was looking quite haggard and whooped! As I sat down to eat, Devon started getting upset because he did not have any food, even though he had just eaten a Man Sized Hot Dog! I asked Jairen if I could buy some onions and peppers since they are his favorite, and she quickly gave me some and told me not to worry about it. I gave them to Devon and turned to get his fork, and when I turned around.....he had spilled them all over himself and the floor!!!! I was too tired to even get upset.....and it was an accident, (one of many for the day).......we both had a rough day! Before I could even say anything, Adrian was johnny on the spot with a broom and dust pan telling me not to worry, he was on it! By this time, they had made me feel so special.......and when I turned the other way, Jairen was right there handing me some more to replace what had been spilled! I was fighting back tears because they were going out of their way to make my day a bit easier! As I was finishing up my food, Adrian had been cleaning and as he came over by me, I told him how much I appreciated him....not just for today, but every time I have been there. He is so helpful and has a beautiful smile that can make a bad day seem not so bad. All of a sudden, he said, "hold on!" and he disappeared. Next thing I know, he came out with a special coupon for me! I also saw him do something that not many people would even pay attention to, but he got a cup of water and took it outside to the patio and poured water in a bowl for a dog that was outside with its owner...........he took care of ALL who were there with a pep in his step and a smile on his face! Who woulda thunk that my day would have been so blessed because of one meal! I thank God for people who love their jobs and that love overflows to the people they serve. The other day I was somewhere and something had gone wrong with someones order, and the girl made it a point to say over and over again that if it were not for us she would not have a paycheck.......and she did it almost to the point of uncomfortable. Today, I was told how thankful they were to those who came in and ate because it gave them a paycheck........but it was not with words.......it was with actions..........and that felt so much more real and genuine! I also want to thank the young man who was working on line prep.......his smile was contagious and it melted my heart that had gone a bit cold before I had even got there! Kevin is his name, and he did an excellent job making Devon and me smile! Jairen, Adrian, and Kevin.........THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY! Today, I praise God for you and for how you make people feel! I praise God for your servants hearts! I praise God for the chance to get to bring attention to some fine young people who are making a difference! Father God, I pray that You will bless these young people.......I pray that You will give them great joy and peace as they find Your Will for their lives!!! In Jesus name I pray.......Amen!
I am a fun loving Honeygram, wife and mother who loves Jesus with my whole heart! If you have any questions.....just ask me and I will do what I can to answer them! May God Bless You All!
