(Second grocery trip of the day)
Do you always stop once you find the things on your list? Or, do you even have a list? 🧐
Sometimes a few extra items land in the cart: today that meant watermelon for my eldest grandchild (she will be so excited ☺️) and sausage for my son (he’ll be happy to get sausage balls soon)…little things we do along the way. I learned I feed people. It seems to be a life theme. 😉
This second stop was for the perishable items. I had a busy day, so I split the shopping up to save time in the long run.
My feet carried me many places today: work, grocery store, flea market, tutoring appointment, gas station, more grocery, bank drive through, home. Some unplanned stops along the way, but happy to have the time to take care of the day-to-day essentials and an extra errand or two.
Happy Easter is already on a lot of people’s lips.
It’s nice to hear. I know we are still on the road, and we have Holy Thursday and Good Friday to witness…and Easter vigil on Saturday, but some folks are ready now. It was nice to hear Be blessed ma’am as I left the last grocery store today. I’m glad I don’t take such greetings for granted.
I am glad I live where I can walk in a place and find what I need most days, and even things I didn’t know I needed.
The day-to-day is really more important than we might think. The small interactions when we look someone in the eye, wish them well, or the moment we select a piece of fruit a child will enjoy. Maybe some little chocolate bunnies, too…because you know…those baskets don’t fill themselves.
Wherever you walked today, I hope someone felt blessed by your presence. Or you by theirs.
