Be Available…


 It always amazes me as to where inspiration comes from. Whether it is kind words from a stranger, a sunny day, two snacks at the vending machine falling out, instead of just the one that was paid for. 

     I haven’t posted in a while, but a comment came it today on one of my earlier posts. It inspired me to keep writing and posting and hopefully inspire others..

     I was sitting in the drive-thru lane at McDonald’s the other morning and I was ordering one of their new Egg White Delight McMuffins. As I was making my order, the woman behind me opened her door and shouted, “Sir!” I was pulling away from the speaker, I didn’t stop, but there was a line at the first window, so I had to wait. The woman behind me placed her order and then came round to be behind me once again, She got out of her car and then proceeded to hand me a coupon for the McMuffin that I just ordered. I thanked her and she quickly went back to her car as the lane was moving.

In taking a moment to think about this, waiting for the cashier, I was moved that she had done this and taken time out of her day to pay for my breakfast. I had heard about such things happening to others in various fast food drive-thru lanes.

When it came time for me to pay, I felt that the only thing to be done was to pay for her breakfast as well. Unfortunately, she had only ordered a soda. I had wanted to make the grander gesture, but it was her that had done so from the start.

As I was handed my meal and I turned to drive off, I waved at the woman in the car in back of me and in return she waved back. 

There is a quote that I try to say to myself everyday credited to Reverend Michal Beckwith from ‘The Secret’ and it is:

“I am available to more good than I have ever experienced, realized, or imagined before.”

It is true, by just being available, you have opened yourself up for amazing possibilities!
