After a couple of weeks off (about which I’ll write soon), I’m back in the Dale saddle 🙂
One of the things I love about how Tuesdays currently look at The Dale is that I get to just “do life” in the neighbourhood. I check the mail, do some grocery shopping for our Thursday breakfast, run other errands, and often go for a walk with a team member to check in on friends.
Today I was headed into our local Freshco when I realized that I’d forgotten a quarter to unlock a shopping cart, and decided to resign myself to lugging a couple of very full baskets around the store. (I’m forgetful, so this is an uncomfortable but not uncommon experience for me!)
Sitting just outside the front door was a man that I recognized but didn’t really know. He asked if I had a quarter, and I said I was so sorry but I didn’t… and that I could actually use one myself! He assessed the situation, and as I turned to go inside he called out, “You need a quarter? Here!”
I gratefully accepted his kind offer, and asked if I could grab something for him inside. When I came back out he was waiting, and we thanked each other for our respective gifts.
May today hold unexpected moments of giving and receiving for you too ❤
