I took four of the kids to Port of Subs tonight. We ordered a couple of sandwiches and handed the cashier our Cougar card. (a fundraiser discount card) The lady then told me that the man ahead of us had already paid for it. "Really?" I was shocked. Someone would really buy dinner for me and four of my children? What a pleasant surprise. What a gentleman. Suddenly I remembered all those movie scenes where the man buys the lady a drink and the bartender points him out to the lady. Where was the man that bought my sandwiches? He had slipped out without giving me the chance to thank him. Then I got thinking to myself...
Wow, I've still got it goin' on!
Or is it, I've still got it on?
Oh, I definitely still had it on alright.
I had the racquetball outfit on.
Had the kink in the hair from the ponytail earlier today on.
Had the flip flops on.
Had the full on granola, no makeup, but most definitely nivea on.
A real beaut!
Got me thinking again. Isn't it amazing how something so small can be so huge? Just last week I handed a man a note at the DMV, and quickly disappeared, never knowing how it impacted him. Now this man had done the same for me. It made me feel beautiful. It's gone full circle.
Whether I'm in fabulous jeans, a trendy blouse, chunky jewelry, great clutch, freshly done makeup and hair or out with my kids picking up sandwiches...I'm glad that I've learned that got it goin' on is being aware of those around me. Being able to recognize and appreciate others confidence, their sacrifices, their hard work, their patience, their service, and then doing something about it.
Now that's, got it goin' on.
And a HUGE thank you to the man that bought my sandwiches and made my day.
