I shared this through my Instagram feed (beyondthebiscuit) so pardon the redundancy. (Note: I’m still building my vocabulary thanks to Steve.)
My last blog post thanked the little humans for their kindness and suggested that they might be able to teach the big humans a thing or two.
A few days later, a big human stepped up and made a difference in my life.
Steve and I had just walked to the local puppuccino shop. I don’t get many of these treats but do I love them! Yum!
Unfortunately, like so many other places in our little beachside town, it was closed for walk up orders. No puppuccino today.
Steve talked to a man who stopped in his car. We had never seen him before. He seemed nice. He was there to pick up coffee for himself. I was missing my puppuccino, though. The man looked at me and smiled.
We said goodbye and walked toward home. A few minutes later the man reappeared, got out of his car, and handed Steve a puppuccino. Can you say, “WOW!”?
“The pup looked disappointed back there.” He smiled and left. All I can say is WOOF! (And YUM!) And thank you kind stranger. You brought a wag to my tail that day.
All of us can benefit from a little less yapping and a bit more kindness.
Thank you for the sunshine you bring to those you meet each day.
Thank you for sharing my blog with your friends.
In my new book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. Perhaps it holds a biscuit or two for you!
