I had some difficulty today trying to decide what today's gift would be.
I helped another person reach the top shelf in Target this afternoon, but since that had been a gift earlier in the week, it didn't seem original. (I truly never realized how many people have difficuly reaching things that are eye level for me!)
I offered to take a woman's grocery cart with me from the parking lot to the store, so she wouldn't have to traipse back to the store after loading her groceries in the car and I told a family who was waiting in a long line at the store that there was a checkout lane without any customers a few lanes away. Admittedly, these aren't things that I would normally do, so they feel like gifts, but I think the real gift was to myself. The gift of not being afraid to reach out and talk to people. (I live on the East Coast and people can be a bit snippy.I have gotten into the habit of just keeping to myself and minding my own business.) If feels strange, but good to be moving outside my comfort zone.
