What a Beautiful Morning

"What a beautiful morning!" is what the man at the gas station said to me this morning. When I got out of my car at the gas station the man filling up on the other side popped his head around and said to me, "What a beautiful morning! It's finally cooled down and the weather is great." I agreed with him and then he said to me "Do you have a job?" I answered yes I do. He immediately said to me, "So do I! I just got a new job." I congratulated him and then he shook my hand and said "Thank you, thank you. I just got a job washing dishes. What a beautiful morning it is to wake up and go to work." I found this so inspiring. The man was older and he must have been out of work for awhile. The economy is still pretty rough for a lot of people and a lot of folks are still out of work. I wanted to share this moment with everyone because it reminds us that every morning is a beautiful morning to wake up. I know I will remember this moment every time I feel frustrated or when I'm working long hours and I just feel like throwing in the towel. Every time I feel this way I will remember the guy at the Kroger gas station who shook my hand and said to me "What a beautiful morning."
