|Sometimes cactus look fuzzy!|
Yesterday, I started out feeling deeply sad and wrote about it. I got the most amazing feedback from my friends & followers on this blog. It really meant a lot to me and I appreciated it so much.
I took the bus to work yesterday and was glad to get to work early, make the coffee and get the day rolling. I had a rare lunch out with 3 work friends. At the end of the day, I crossed the busy street to catch the bus home. As I was waiting for Rte. 120 to pick me up, a young man came walking up and said hello. He had a small stack of papers in his hand and asked me where I worked. I just off-handedly said "oh, across the street". I'm not very trusting of people so I never offer exactly where I work. He said he was looking for work and it just so happens that the car dealership which is right behind the bus stop had a big sign up that they were looking for a lot attendant, which I pointed out to him. I asked him if he had a clean driving record and he said yes. I pointed him to the front door and I could see through the windows that they had him filling out an application within 2 minutes. He missed the bus! I sure hope he gets the job. He was a clean-cut, sweet looking, friendly kid, probably about 18 or 19 years old. Somebody's son.
I love that feeling when I'm offered a job. It makes me feel worthy. When I got on the bus, all I could think about was what a great day it had been and how I would have missed that little chance meeting of a nice kid if I had not been taking the bus yesterday.
I received a ton of warm fuzzies yesterday ... and I really needed them. I just want to thank the universe for sending them to me. I hope I can return the favor.
