It seems I always share my grocery shopping experiences on here. It really is a time that I dread, but it ALWAYS is a time that I learn something, I find new insight and I am blessed. God does that. He truly can bless you even when you are doing what you really don’t like to do. He is super duper awesome like that!
This morning, I was in the Walmart parking lot at 7:41. I had a great organized list and was ready to tackle it! I zooomed through in record time and was just rockin’ this grocery shopping trip. When I was done with the list (I had checked every item off!), I decided to go look at the cheap t-shirts to paint on. I heard a man say, “Hey Lady, what you doin?” It was a cute old man that I had seen in this Walmart numerous times before. He’s usually at the front giving you a buggy or just smiling. I told him I was just looking around and getting my shopping done. He looks at my buggy and says, “Well, it’s almost full.” And man was it! I almost had it to the top and was thankful I really was finished putting things in that thing.
I casually looked at the shirts while listening to his conversation with other close-by employees. He was so happy. He was so sweet. He was so positive. He even gave one man coming down the aisle a piece of candy. I made eye contact with the man and checked out his face-mood. Yes, face-mood…what was his face saying? He was happy. He had that look on his face like “awwww, I’m special.” It was that little sweet, cutie-patootie of a man who just gave him that candy and everyone else his positive spirit.
I made my way to the check-out and had a lovely cashier. She was a sweetie. I thanked God for the experiences I had at this Walmart adventure. On my way out the door, I realized that Mr. Happiest Man at Walmart was organizing carts at the entrance. I swiveled my FULL cart around and went back into the store. He smiles and says, “Well, hello!” I said, “Can I take my picture with you, because you are the happiest person I’ve seen in Walmart this morning?” He smiled and walked toward me to post while almost giggling a little. I loved loved love this… Love this man even though I really don’t know him. I love his spirit, his attitude and most of all
I want to grow up to be JUST LIKE Mr. Happiest Man at Walmart (Dick as the name tag says)!
