I have a cute little story to share with you. (short video to follow too!)
Meet Katy. She’s that cute thang on your right. Katy works at a local grocery store in my town. I don’t know her personally, but I certainly know her cheery disposition every time I stand in line during a task I don’t particularly like. I’m just not a foodie so I’m not into groceries, except for survival.
Well, Katy makes my short jaunt to the store bearable. Her smiles and talkative nature draw me in, and her scottish accent is simply icing on the cake. (I LOVE accents because I don’t have one!)
Last year I carried one of these calendars up to the checkout to pay. They’re special because they’re so BIG. Katy cheerfully rang it up and made mention that she had been wanting one too. I didn’t think twice. This gal that makes me smile every time I walk into the store deserved a calendar that day so I told her to, “Ring up two.”
She was taken aback and said NO! But I wouldn’t hear of it! So for an entire year she’s had to endure the fact that I bought her a calendar.
This past weekend it was time to pick up another. I went to pay for my groceries and there was Katy again, smiling as if waiting for me.
me – “You get your calendar for this year yet?”
Katy in her adorable accent – “No, not yet! I’ve been (chatter chatter etc)”
me – “Well, ring up two.”
The calendar was a whoppin’ $12.00. Pittance! It’s nothing. But the combination of Katy and the calendar is a special one. What we’ve done for each other has made a difference for both of us.
Small things just mean an awful lot to me these days. Thank-you Katy!
But so did you contributing to Cindy’s family and being such a wonderful support system for all of us.
That was a really BIG thing and please know you’ve made a tremendous difference.
Thank-you for thinking of us and helping.
And thank-you for continuing to be a Katy to me every day.
