I went grocery shopping last night. I went alone. Ah! Just think--I did not have to worry about kids wandering off to get lost or falling out of the shopping cart or begging for something I didn't want to buy.
Then perhaps best of all, the store clerk did a superb job bagging the groceries! Seriously, I usually load up a grocery cart and somehow at the check out the groceries expand into two full carts. This young woman bagged in such a way that the groceries fit back into the same cart almost exactly the way they had come out. I had the same types of items to what I always buy at that store, and I loaded and unloaded my cart in a similar way. She must have had a visual-spacial gift that she applied to bagging groceries. It meant that I had fewer bags to handle. I could fit all the groceries into my car easily and it was easier to carry them in and unpack them at home. With a large family, the physical purchasing and moving of food supplies takes considerable physical strength. I complimented her on her bagging abilities.
Even thinking about last nights grocery shopping trip brings a smile to my face. :) Simple little things in life can really make a difference.
Feel free to share any of the silly little things that bring you joy!
