Quick Thought:Be Thankful

4:52 PM

Someone up there seemed to like me today because my day wasn't all bad. I had really sweet customers that made me smile and I even kept a smile on my face as I did payroll. That's saying a lot considering I'm teaching myself how to do payroll. I had a customer come into my store and he said to me, "it's really slow out there." He was referring to the mall and other places that weren't doing their best business. We were slow and I said to him, "I noticed that, it's killing us." He then said to me, "well, just so you know it's not just you." And then he smiled at me and said, "but at least you have a job."

And it hit me. Well not right then, but it did hit me. Don't get me wrong, I've always been grateful for my job. I complain but I do it more so because I am my mother's child not because I'm not appreciative of what God has given me. When he said that to me, I just went on with my day and then two hours later...yes damn it I said two hours later, I tend to have a late reaction to things. So anyway, two hours later I was folding a shirt and I just stopped because it finally sank in. At least I have a job. I looked up and said, "ok, I get it, thank you."

My point is, no matter how much you hate your job, no matter how much you want to quit, and no matter what you say about that job, don't forget to count your blessings. HE didn't have to give you all that HE did...but HE did, so say thank you.

*So my thought wasn't all that quick,but whatever*
