I get dressed and start my morning routine by first reading scripture. After 18 months of daily reading I am in the book of John and it is lovely. Christ has come alive for me and reveals gentleness and love for others. It inspires me to be better. Next, I move on to emails and my favorite blogs and finally I grab a cup of coffee.
Now, I am a girl who although I am a decent cook I DO NOT COOK. I am a little strange in the respect of food in my house. I do not like my house to smell like food therefore I DO NOT COOK! So, that means I need to go to my local coffee shop ie. Dunkies for my first cup in the morning. I bound out the door and say goodbye to hubby who is looking over his pristinely cut lawn from yesterday and wave goodbye to him as I bound out the driveway. It is a good MONDAY morning!
While I sit in line at the drive through my mind wanders and I realize that I am preoccupied about how I will greet my server at the window and begin to rehearse what I might say. I am cheery and want her day to be too! SO I play in my head the words "you have a greeeeaaat day Missy", nah that sounds a little condescending even if it is not meant to be. Okay try this "I hope you have a day full of fun today!" ...Really(**(^&*^%$ she is at work! Then I practice, "I hope you have a great day sweetie" after all sweetie is kind and friendly and not too familiar...ahh forget it I'll just say thank you and have a good day......as I get to the window I am greeted by a young girl who is probably at her summer job. Before I can say 'have a good day" she looks at me straight in the eye and says "you have a great day sweetie".......I drove away, smiling ear to ear.
