Motivational Monday


As I was checking out at the grocery store yesterday, the lady  in front of me began looking at all the items I was pulling out of my cart to purchase. She asked me about a particular item that she thought looked good. She said I've never heard of that cereal before, is it good? I continued to tell her how I just loved it. She asked me how much it was, and my reply was "I am not sure." She said to me - You don't know how much the stuff costs that you are buying? That is probably $4 cereal, you must be rich. That comment made me feel about  this big I continued to tell her no, I am not rich... I just always buy the same things. If you really knew me, you would know how much I say how expensive groceries have gotten. Throughout my conversation with this woman, it made me realize some of the things I take for granted...like putting food on the table for my family. I am fortunate enough to not necessarily have to look at the prices at a grocery store for what I need. I know that if I truly need it, I am going to buy it no matter what the price is. When it comes to other purchases, I am all about looking for the best deal. It just makes me appreciate what I do have - because there are people that are not as fortunate. 

I am blessed
I am grateful
I am excited
I am thankful
I am happy
