Sure, I needed a few things, but nothing I couldn't live without until my regular shopping day. But when I got home and checked my e-mail, I saw that my prescription that I'd forgotten I renewed was ready.
Oh, I guess I'm going to the store after all.
While I was there, I decided I need to refill my attitude meds as well, so I bought jelly beans.
Wandering around the store a bit...bestill my beating heart, journals on clearance!
I was tempted, but I behaved myself. I settled for some new pens, instead.
Clearly, I have a problem.
I wandered a bit more and found myself in the electronics department. Not quite as exciting, but a nice discovery nonetheless, the new Karate Kid movie in the $5 bin.
Yeah, I bought it. I think I actually like it better than the original Karate Kid movies. I couldn't stand Ralph Macchio. Well, his character, Daniel. He was just so whiny. I liked the first movie, the second was OK, but by the third movie, I was ready to beat the crap out of him myself, just to shut up his whining. Urgh...
Deciding I'd done enough damage to my checking account, I paid for my purchases and headed out to my car.
You know, you never know when God is going to use you to brighten a stranger's day. He touched someone's heart to leave this delightful little note on my car door.
Suddenly, a hum drum day became just a little bit better.
Now, I need to pay it forward. How about a new hat for some special little girl?
Just like that little anonymous note.
