Today I meet the Kindest Person in line at the Whole Foods Store. She made a comment about the 20 containers of Rice and Almond milk that I had TOWERING in my cart. :) I explained Our new diet changes and she asked how it was going. And then she asked the reason for the switch. I have to tell you after last weeks Episode of negativity from my fellow Sams Club shoppers I was a bit hesitant. But, I was welcomed with a caring stream of questions and she even passed on some much needed encouragement and even a Kudos tucked in here and there. I normally don't need my back stroked with indulgent Praise. But, after last week a little Love and Acceptance goes a long way. Here is My FB Post from the other day about what I'm talking about.
the other day we were at a store. One of the employees was coming into
the store with about 20 carts. He was going over the bumpy surface that
they had in front of the store. It was loud and annoying for me, for
Kaden it was 10x worse. He covered his ears, dropped to the ground,
started kicking and screaming to stop. I tried
to pick him up and then I decided to let him work through it. Everyone
was staring and shaking their heads. I felt bad for Kaden, because he's a
great kid and I hated thinking that other people were sending out that
negative vibe that he was anything other then the amazzzzing kid I know
he is. Then this young guy walked by and said to his girlfriend or wife
loud enough for me to hear that that right there is why he will not be
having any kids. And older woman came to me and said back when you were a
kid I bet you didn't get away with what he's doing, I know I wouldn't
have let any of mine behave like this. I have 5 kids and 14 grand-kids.
So, I stood there and waited fighting back tears until Kaden was able
to get up and all he could say to me was van please. I don't have many
interactions like this, but when I do Man do they effect me!!!
Have a Blessed Day!!!!
