No more Buggy Blues
So it has been a while since I have made a post, but it seems to have been a busy time with family, work…and the release of Battlefield 3 and Skyrim, but I had to take a time out for this one.
My motivational Ingles moment…
I stopped by the ingles a week or so ago on the way home from work and over heard a lady complaining about there not being any dry buggies for her to use. I am assuming she had forgot it had been raining all day like we lived in a rain forest, but I went along with my shopping and left. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, I saw an Ingles employee in the pouring rain gathering buggies…a job that not many people would want to do. As I pulled out I thought about that guy, and how cold and wet he had to be, but like most things …. My feelings faded and it passed by..
Until this morning….
Fast forward to today..I had just dropped off the kids at school and needed to stop buy Ingles to pick up a few things. I went to a different Ingles this time, not raining and no buggies in the parking lot and plenty inside. I went in, did my shopping and came out of the store. By this time it had started sprinkling rain so I hurried to the back of car, dumped my groceries into the back, pushed my buggy towards the buggy holding rack and dove in my drivers we seat just before it started raining more.
As I drove off, for some reason I thought of that grumpy woman who was complaining at the other Ingles,a few weeks back and had to stop my car in its tracks, get out with a smile on my face walk straight to the buggy I had just left and slowly strolled it back inside. Now I am drenched, but smiling ear to ear when I look up and see 2 employees talking to each other. One looks at the other and says wow someone brought back a buggy, he smiled at me and gave me a nod. I nodded back at him in a way that said, you won’t have to get my buggy today. As I walked back out I thought to myself, this great feeling I am feeling right now may be the whole reason that I had overheard that grumpy lady…. And can’t help but think
God is Great! He can even talk to us even through grumpy Ingles shoppers.
