Well here it is Christmas Eve, after I just took a nice long hot bath, ate some dinner, lit some candles, and can finally allow myself to relax.
It’s been a LONG haul. Two weeks working over 50 hours per week without a day off has left me POOPED.
Yet, I gotta say…it was not too bad concerning customers because most everyone I waited on was pleasant and patient. Business this year was very slow to start, but the last week had people shopping in full swing.
And yes, the last two hours before the store closed tonight, our department was FILLED with last minute shoppers (mainly men) going insane because there were no gift sets left on the shelves that were under $15.00 and came with a FREE bag and a Mercedes Benz.
I left the store about five minutes before it closed, totally burned out and with aching feet; utterly glad that it was over for another year.
But I got a very pleasant and glorious surprise when I walked out onto the city streets.
I recieved the best Christmas gift I could have ever gotten this year.
It was SNOWING!
A snowy Christmas Eve.
Yup….it doesn’t get any better than that!
I felt blessed.
So I walked home with a big smile on my face, a spring in my step, and my mouth wide open.
Trying to catch a few snowflakes with my tongue...
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, EVERYONE!
