I recently had a wonderful strange quick encounter..
I e mailed 'Michaels' about art supplies- I was NOT pleased with.
My called was returned - It was an interesting conversation- at one point the woman said to me.. a tiny bit heated. "...I FEEL YOU!" & she meant it - I know because i felt it too.
The entire conversation changed - what did she say ? I feel you?
She said "I do feel you!" - I said "..I feel it too."
YOU could hear it in 'our' voice - we felt it.
She felt it- I felt it too - do you think we care if 'you' believe us - it felt great!
We were both giggling when we met like old friends .
It went from "How the *&^% do they expect me to cut THAT Matt!?"
To my matt being cut, dropped off at my home with a Hug, sorry and a new connection.
I laughed - you 'felt me' - imagine being Norm coming home to tell me - "don't worry about it - I'll cut it in the garage..." Gasp! All painting friends are gasping with me.. FLAT black matt - saw, dust... frig. I appreciated the effort and shall use them as scrap.
I would never have walked out of the store with a sheet of matt, they would have been cut, then. NOW. Art supply store. *People, $15.00 an hour - I get why some are frustrated, I don't think it's too much to ask for a tiny bit of service for our money, you can't provide something one time and not the next. It's business. Anyhow, it ended awesome - it was not about the matt.. it was about her & I learning a lesson.
HOW 'words' & feelings can turn a conversation around in seconds. Go figure!
Everyone is your Guru - If you know how to listen. Hee Hee, thanks Ram Das.
We ARE all connected - FEEL IT!
I am done dismissing these mini miracles. ;) I embrace each one.
Storm was witness to all of it and was "amused" the week before I had just mentioned 'I wanted to try a new honey' (costco) - not one minute later an old man walked right up to me up and said "Would you like to try this honey -CRACKED the jar open, which was already in his cart... "I am buying it anyway" he insists as did his wife - so
I did" It was wonderful twice gifted' honey - I did see them go through the cash - they bought the honey.
Storm stood there with a sort of amazed but not shocked look.
It was priceless. Oh my gosh, it cracks me up just thinking of it.
StuFF... little miracles. ;) Embrace them, Recognize them.
Welcome them & even when life gets you down - continue to mail out cards of Love & it come back to you. ;D. It's a LOVELY day today -I was up with he birds & have some serious painting to do!
With TLC & THC
* I intentionally colored my hair grey in the cartoon- there are FAR TOO FEW older women SEEN in media today- ALL media. It is a step in the real right direction.
I embrace every great hair!
