The Small Things in Life
I volunteer at our church during the second service in the book store. This was a huge step for me because I'm so shy, which is one reason I needed to do it. The very first Sunday I tried it, I loved it. The people volunteering are great. I get to meet other people on staff and people who attend or visit our church. I love it. It's the first time I've ever used a register, and it still amazes me that I've not totally destroyed their system...but in all fairness, I'm new, so give it some time. :)
I'm off track. What got me so excited is that last Sunday...I got my first name tag! Seriously. I've never in my life had a name tag and for some reason, this just thrilled me. It's gold with black engraved lettering, and they even spelled my name correctly, which rarely happens. It's got a magnetic backing so I don't have to put holes in my clothes, which sort of worried me when they first gave it to me and I was wearing a silk blouse.
Casey came into the book store to visit me and the first thing I did was show him my name tag. Everyone working there keeps teasing me about how easy it is to excite me...and it's true. I do get all excited and happy with the little things in life. The simple things, like a name tag. Hey, my name being spelled right is just a bonus! I was going to take a picture of it to put up here, but I forgot because I was running late for the class Casey and I take.
Yup, I really am that easy. Simple pleasures are my life's treasures.
