I was at Starbuck in Borders bookstore yesterday with my family yesterday, kind of dissappointed as our favourite sofas at the corner inside Starbuck were all taken up, hence we settled for the not so comfy wooden chairs.
Not long after our settlement with the wooden chairs, suddenly one nice lady with a nice smile on her face came up to me and said something like this," You can take my place over there, there are three sofas there," i responded with a greatful, " hey, i appreciate it." then and she sauntered over to collect her books from the coffee table, i just followed suit.
As i bent over to help her to gather her books, suddenly she said something that really put me on "cloud nine" touching "cloud ten" hahahahahahah, and she said,"You've got a very interesting blog," i was like tossed into disbelief, suddenly i felt like a celebrity blogger,hahahaha, a stranger telling me something like this, and with a twist of my tongue and said," I am eugene," and she said something like this again, " i know cos i saw your picture in the blog."
Before i could get her name and to thank her because i was still immersed in the esctasy of still believing that i was a celeb blogger, and when i finally came to my senses, she was already gone.
I really learnt something very important from this lovely lady, something so little that she did but gave out some much to someone who received. For one, she could have just kept quiet after offering me her sofas, but instead from her brief comment, she had just made someone felt so nice.( Think about it)
And to this lovely lady, if you happen to drop by here reading, this post is for you in appreciation to your kind comment, that had in one way touched a soul, and i thank you for letting me know and to believe that i could have made my blog to bring some joy and laughter to more "friends" like you.
So please leave your name in my comment box, i would really like to address you by your name, the next time i cross the path of friendship with you, thank you once again.
