The Life: Blessed By A Sweet Tooth
So I've always tried to walk a path of not having expectations in people and just meet and except people where they are in life. If they do more than what I expected of them then it's a blessing and if it's less than I expected then I don't get mad because that's who they were when I met them and I can keep my relationship intact and I don't find myself judging them for being themselves.
I was sharing that to say on my way home from the office today I got a craving for some Italian ice cream from a place near my apartments. I was going to come home first to drop something off then head back out. So on my way back out I decided that I'm just going to go to the grocery store instead and just grab some strawberry Greek yogurt instead because it's was a little cheaper and probably better for me. So fast forward I picked up a few yogurt cups and I get in line to pay then I realized that I left my wallet in my SUV and since I had time I told the cashier and then I ran to my vehicle.
On my rush back it was my turn to pay and the cashier said don't worry about it's already been paid for. I was a little bit in confusion and then she said this gentleman (the guy in front of me in line before I stepped out) paid for it. I said with a dumbfounded look on my face and said "Wow!!! You didn't have to do that because I had the money... I just forgot my wallet!!!" And as so I asked the cashier, "How much was it so I can give him his money back" and the guys said "No problem, sometimes you just need to bless other people." I was in such shock from this man's generous act I just put my hand out to shake his hand and said "Thank You" with the most humbling yet surprised feeling. And then I walked out.
Now, obviously I wasn't grateful b/c of the yogurt. I mean, come on it was about maybe $6 or $7 bucks and I had the money but I was grateful that a complete stranger showed that act of kindness when he didn't have too. I wasn't holding up the line or even looked like I needed the money. But God or hopefully God put on his spirit to help someone who didn't ask for it. Also, bc I could have went against my own own gut feeling and still went to the Italian ice cream place and paid for some ice cream instead of enjoying this free delicious strawberry yogurt.
Now I'm only share this story for two reasons. 1) Sometimes we have to learn how to bless others just because we can and not b/c they asked. And 2) sometimes if we go against our gut (which most of the time is God speaking to us) we can miss a blessing because we're so stuck on what we want. Well I hope that blesses some one today because I know it blessed me and my sweet tooth.
