Unexpected Blessings! They Noticed!
What a wonderful gift I was given when finishing my grocery shopping, this morning, and heading to my vehicle!
I dislike grocery shopping, especially if I need to buy heavy items. I purposely make small shopping trips throughout the week, to get out and socialize, and lighten the load!
I always ask for help, when needed. I feel it’s a healthy thing, and it gives others the joy of offering the assistance or kindness! I got help putting a heavy item into my grocery shopping cart.
When I was exiting the store and heading to my car, I had just missed the parking lot cart gatherer who could have helped me lift the item into my Subaru Outback Hatchback. Luckily! A distinguished looking gentleman, exiting his SUV was walking towards me! “Would you mind helping me lift this item into my hatchback?” I asked.
He got a big smile on his face and was MORE than willing to help! He then said: ‘My son and I always waved and smiled back at you when you were at the Thai Palace parking lot on Carlisle Pike!’
I tend to forget that I have my WWW.LAFOLOT.COM LIFE LIFE! LAUGH OFTEN! bumper display on the passenger side door of my car. I also have the HA-HAHA license plate and my LAFOLOT.COM magnetic business sign on the driver’s side door. I guess he had NOTICED!
I said: ‘Wow! Thank you so much! You really MADE MY DAY by mentioning that!’ I said: ‘I really appreciate your sharing that with me!’ I let him know a little more about what I do, the WE DO! (Worldwide, Evolved Do-Gooders Organization!) I had just started, and told him he was NOW A MEMBER due to the KINDNESS he had just shown me! *hee hee The other funny thing was, I hadn’t done that ‘sitting along side the road’ for almost two years, and HE REMEMBERED!
I gave him one of my LAFOLOT Bookmark Business cards and he noted he was going to check it out.
I have to say, LIFE gives you UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS when – ironically – you LEAST EXPECT IT! HA HA!
I think anyone that is PASSIONATE about their business or career needs to hear, occassionally, that they are making an impact or are NOTICED!
Over the years, Sally Field’s line at one of the awards shows: ‘You like me! You really like me!’ has been joked about.
Being a new business owner who took a LEAP OF FAITH, left a lucrative, safe job and stepped out to do more with her life, to impact the world, sometimes you want to just toss it all and go back to the safety of a 9 to 5 job.
Then … when you least expect it – you get that ANGEL that magically walks across your path and tells you KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING – SOMEONE NOTICED YOU, AND YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES!
In Gratitude for the COMPLIMENT and KINDNESS I received today,

Thanks! I NEEDED THAT!
