Earlier this week, I went to Tokyo Joe's for lunch with my friend Jill. The fellow at the counter asked if I wanted a "frequent flyer" card. Jill said, "Lissa, you should really do that!" So, I jumped on it and half-teasingly asked if I could get punches for the last three times I was in! The answer was yes! Now how do you like that? I'd made a point of asking the fellow's name and he knew I'd been in at least once before. It helps to be nice.
A couple days later, I went to Dairy Queen. I ordered a hot fudge sundae. The gal rang me up and then I thought to ask if I could get nuts. She said, "Sure, and I won't charge you since I've already swiped your card." Gee, that was nice. It's the little things that bring us back and I can guarantee you I'll be back to Tokyo Joe's and Dairy Queen. This isn't big money, but the pennies add up and in some ways it's more about the symbolism.
Abundance is also showing up in getting together with friends. In addition to meeting with Jill, I had coffee with my friend Shirley today; tomorrow I have coffee with Janet; Saturday coffee with Carrie; and Sunday a photo shoot with a new Flickr friend Meegan. Wow. And one of the things I put in my ABUNDANCE Wordle cloud was companionship! How do you like that? Well, I like it a lot!
By the way, I accepted a job offer today! Yay!!
