The butt-crack-of-dawn rising did not cause any ripple effect today. The smarter-than-mom 13 year old didn’t even have a chance to ruin the start of my day. Everything just flowed…fell into place…(translation…) everything was accomplished. I am not that weird…Am I?
Couldn’t Tell It Was A Monday!
Dinner is ready before my youngest has even hopped off the bus…basketball practice tonight!
Typical never ending chores completed giving me time to talk with friends about stuff! (VBS planning…Don’t shake your head; I told you we were getting an early start!
What a grand feeling!
BUT…What happens in a few hours when I finally sit down and put my feet up?
“Yep…you’re right…” The same thing will happen to you! Well what do you expect? It’s Monday! I think I better grab another cup of coffee!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
It happens to each of us every day! Those little remarks that slip out of the mouth before bouncing around through the brain first! You know those little remarks…the ones that make you shake your head and wonder why that person bothered to get out of bed. But, how many of us would admit that we have let brainless pings fly out of our mouths…”Yep…me too!” “Here’s Your Sign!”
It was Sunday morning and I was standing on the staging area with a microphone in my hand. A member of the church walks up and waits to speak with the pastor and looks up at me…”You singin’ today?” I replied…”No…The mic stand needed to run to the bathroom and ask me to hold the Mic.”
Here’s Your Sign!
I recently went into my local Starbucks. There was a line and we were informed that they were training. A few people left and I moved up…I finally reached the counter and the young man smiled and said…”Would you like coffee today?” Being who I am and the fact that a friend of mine was doing the training I smiled and said…”No…I would like 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun please!” My friend the manager giggled and said…Here’s Your Sign! then she introduced us…This young man now calls me by name and has my drink prepared before I can pay!
I was making Enchiladas last night for dinner. Everything was on the counter as I began the assembling. My youngest walks into the kitchen and says “You fixing dinner?” wait for it…”Oh goody…I love your lasagna!” I smiled and said…”No, I thought I would see how long this would take to prepare and cook so I would know when to start it tomorrow!”. Here’s Your Sign!”
I have a son that works at a local gym. It is a large franchise with a specific dress code…complete with logo attire. He was coming from his office and saw someone he went to school with coming in with his dad. As he walked over to them as his friend said “Hey…you work here?” My son just looked at him and said Here’s Your Sign!” The friend could not believe he had fallen onto the trap.
These are just a few of the many “Here’s Your Sign!” stories from my family. Take a closer look and you will be amazed to see these brainless pings are bouncing through your life too. Please share…and Have a great day!
