First Tuesdays Unwrapped of June



Time again for Tuesdays Unwrapped.  Time to take pause and notice things...they may be little or not.  Something that makes you say "thank you"; some gift that you may have been given that you may have otherwise overlooked.

Last Tuesday I wrote about Daily Mass and my "revelation" about one of the priests.  I hate to repeat myself  (but, maybe not because I'm going to!), but I've gotta talk about Daily Mass again.

Last week I went to several different stores looking for either a dress or a skirt and blouse to wear to a wedding on Saturday evening (but I ended up not going ...thanks to a headache).  In every store I went to, people  were friendly,  making eye contact, saying hello, and smiling.  This never happens to me in the mall.  And, to beat it all, I found 2 skirts and a sweater...all on sale!  Each item was under $15.  Again, this never happens to me!  As I was checking out at one store, I found these really cute earrings:
I'm really glad I can wear cheap earrings...I got these for $3.98!  I was so excited, and the saleslady was, too!  This just doesn't happen to me, y'all!  Thank you, CJ Banks!

I'm not saying that God helped me out with the stuff I bought, but it is really weird how all of a sudden everybody is making eye contact with me, smiling at me, and speaking to me.  Maybe it's just a change in my attitude last week...I don't know.  But, I didn't speak to anybody first...they spoke to me.  Coincidence?  I think not!

Hope everybody has a good Tuesday, and don't forget to smile and say "hi" to a stranger!

  1. This makes me hum the Doxology, "Praise God from whom all blessings flow..."

    I do think our heart attitude radiates on the outside! Thanks for the reminder. Off to the shops!

  2. It is a great feeling when you are successful at shopping...and an even better feeling when surrounded by friendly peeps.

  4. I think that smiles are contagious. Smiles disarm people...surprise them, if you will.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that it was YOU who was doing more smiling. I find that when we're in better spirits and smile at the world, the world smiles back.

    LOVE the earrings

  7. I just discovered CJ Banks' jewelery a week or two ago. Unfortunately, I also discovered that they send daily emails that are very difficult to unsubscribe to. What was I thinking??

  8. I worked in a dental office for years. A smile eases tension and causes people to relax...even in the dentist chair!
