Thought for the day…..

I just wanted to tell you all this story as the thought for the day.

Yesterday, while I was working at Bath & Body Works (West Edmonton Mall).

A lady came into the store looking for a particular item.

I could not help but notice her Texan drawl.

We got to chatting.

She flew to Edmonton to be with her husband who was in business meetings (oil, of course).

This Texan Lady remarked on the beauty of our country.  She also wanted to check out some of Edmonton’s sites.  Even inquired about “public transportation”.  So I gave her the 3-1-1.

Also on the weekend before flying back to Texas they were going to visit Jasper.  I know that they will enjoy their time there.

I quickly told her about other points of interest throughout Canada – like our Maritime relatives and Calgary and Banff to the south.

She remarked on “how very friendly and wonderful everyone in Edmonton and Canada had been to her.”

I told her about when I was a young girl and our family spent the winter in McAllen, Texas.

I felt then as I do now – that Texans are like us …… BIG HEARTED, WARM people.

“We bonded.”  She was so nice.

This is CHEERS to CANADIANS – WE ROCK.

Continue to be the best and most friendly people on the “block” ……. the world is noticing.

It is always good to be liked by your neighbours…..

Have a wonderful FRIDAY everyone.

Always, Carol

P.S. time for coffee……………..
