Warm Heart Wednesday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." This is where we share something that warmed our hearts.
There are so many people and services that we tend to take for granted. For years I shopped at the same Kroger Supermarket. To myself I would admire the produce department. It was usually very neat and well stocked. The produce looked fresh. It never even occurred to me to share my thoughts with anyone else.
In an instant I knew I had made his day. I had seen him hundreds of times. Why hadn't I said something before? I guess because I took his good work for granted. Probably most of the time when a customer spoke to him it was to complain about something. I had caught him completely off guard by paying him a compliment. For me it was a heart warming moment and a lesson learned.
Perhaps you heard about the little 3 year old girl in Illinois who enjoyed waving to the garbage man every Thursday? She would wait for him with her mom just so she could wave. He would honk the horn and give her a big wave back.
Brooklyn decided she wanted to share one of her birthday cup cakes with him and that's exactly what she did.
The garbage man is someone we take for granted, but if he didn't show up for a while we'd sure notice! Thank you Brooklyn for the reminder.
