It all started with that dang girl at Victoria's Secret.
She was standing behind me in line and asked about a coupon I had in my hand for free panties. I wanted to just give her my coupon for some reason, but then remembered I had a text coupon on my cell for buy one get one free. I told her about it and she gave me her digits so I could forward it to her. I left the store.
If someone shared a code with me, I would text them back and say thanks. I received no text. This was bugging me all night that she seemed so ungrateful.
ALL I WANTED WAS A THANK YOU TEXT. Is that too much to ask.
So I decided to pray to appreciate things more.
Then people started cutting me off, bumping into me in stores and not apologizing or saying a simple 'excuse me', and just plain annoying me.
So I prayed again and asked
WHY ARE YOU PUTTING THESE ANNOYING PEOPLE IN MY LIFE WHEN I'M TRYING TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF OTHERS? WHY?!
And then it hit me. I'm pretty sure God has a sense of humor. He answers our prayers...just maybe not the way we expect it. I don't want all of these rude people to cross my path, but it helps me appreciate it more when people are polite. Thanks.
I should've learned from a previous experience when I prayed for patience.
