My friend and I went to the mall today. There was a necklace I’ve been eyeing there, and a girlfriend of mine works in the store, and texted me this morning making sure I knew it was 40% off today. So I just had to go snag it while it was on sale.
We decided after that to grab a Starbucks around the corner. It’s 21 degrees today and feels like an actual heatwave compared to the past two days. But 21 is still pretty chilly, and a nice warm cup of coffee sounded too good to pass up. As my friend held the door for me, a young man came literally running out of the store. We just kind of stood there and looked at him, because he was smiling from ear to ear after getting out into the cold, and stopped to turn around and sort of look up. I asked him if he was okay. He looked at me and laughed and said, “Yeah, it’s just that – well, I really love that song they’re playing out here.” And without caring what anyone thought of him, he began to sing along…..
Well, all right!
It’s the little things – I say that all the time. But this year, I’m trying to really think about just what those little things are. It’s an easy way to stay grateful, and a good habit to have! And this guy – well, I think he “gets it,” don’t you?
Thank you, whoever you were, for making my day!
I think I’ll try to come up with 365 (minus 21 cuz I missed the first 21 days of the month) “little things that matter.” I’ll come up with those first 21 in the start of 2020!
So my first little thing of the day today, January 22, 2019, is MUSIC & SINGING! Now, enjoy my new favorite song.
“Sing to Him, sing praise to Him. Tell of all His wonderful acts.” Psalm 105:2
