Thankful For Grocery Shopping
Today was grocery shopping day for me. And I must confess, this task has not been on my favorite list of domestic activities for awhile now. Primarily because of how much I get stared at for wearing a head scarf, or showing off my itty bitty new hairs.
And the whole process of having to make a list and be all organized.
Not a very easy or pleasant thing for this housewife. ;)
I made several stops, and realized at the last minute I needed a loaf of crusty French bread for a French toast casserole that I am preparing this weekend.
So I stopped in to a local grocery store, found the loaf I needed in the bakery, and headed for the self-checkout.
While carrying the loaf through the store, a memory flashed in my head. Me as a child, pretending to stop at a bakery, and carry a fresh loaf of bread home. :)
With a silly little smile on my face, I paid for my loaf of bread, walked out the door, and silently thanked the LORD for making a childhood dream come true.
And for giving me the health, and the means to buy groceries for my husband and I. Even if I get stared at. :)
Has the LORD brought a childhood dream of yours to life? What simple task are you thankful today?
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
