First Tuesdays Unwrapped of June

tuesdays unwrapped at cats

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!
