Thought for the day….

Welcome to Friday, September 7th, 2012.

How are you today?

I am feeling great.

The air was so perfect earlier when I stepped out the back with Alvin….

Just a tiny bit of coolness which was graced by the moon which looked full and star shine.

Just perfect.

Good thing that the moon is so bright as my backdoor light burned out when I went to turn it on this morning.

So Alvin had the moon light to light his way (okay, perhaps a bit too much information, there, LOL).

 

Anyway I am grateful that today is Friday because I get to go and work at my favourite store with some of my most favourite people.

People in retail do not get enough “praise” or pay for all that they do.

They work long hours but with very little pay, and have to put up with every kind of mood and whim on the planet.

I wished that people would be more kind to people working in retail….. they are after all just trying to make a living like the rest of us.

Contrary to popular belief being employed in retail is HARD WORK.

I now know what my daughter meant ……

So next time you stop by a store to pick up something …. be mindful of those employees.

Everyone no matter their position in life deserves to be treated with respect and mindfulness.

Try to come in before close ….. those people would like to go home.

A good many people working in retail do it as a second or third job to make a living and they want to go home ……

Thank you, I appreciate your listening …..

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all my co-workers at Bath & Body Works, West Ed …. YOU ROCK…. they truly are the best.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
