Lists: Getting and Giving at the Grocery Store

I just remembered that I have to stop at the grocery store on the way home.  Being that I am an organized kind of guy, I like to make lists.

Here’s my grocery list:

1.  Milk

2. Eggs

3.  Smile and say “Hi” to the person in Aisle #5 who looks a little sad.

4.  Bread

5.  Ice cream

6.  Acknowledge the teenager stocking the shelves and tell him he is doing a good job.

7.  Healthy snacks

8.  Flowers for my wife

9.  Thank the cashier for their help as I leave.

Remember, it’s not always what you pick up at the store that matters most.  Sometimes what you leave behind is even more important.

It’s not all about us.

Little acts of kindness can have a ripple effect and change somebody’s day.  And many times it’s free!
