MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP…

The St. Augustine, FL “WALMART SUPERCENTER”!!!  OMG, folks!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  YOU ARE GONNA ABSOLUTELY L-O-V-E “THIS” STORY…

Okay, I stopped by Walmart Supercenter for groceries on my way home from work Fri.,6/13/14  (FRIDAY, THE 13th!!!) :/

I had noticed a woman in the “check-out” line in front of me.  I think she had 2, maybe 3 young boys.  The cashier seemed to “KNOW” them.  They spoke quite “freely”.  I came to find out that they didn’t really know each other.  It seems that this woman and those young boys–all under 7-8 yrs. of age–have shopped there before.  The cashier spoke very highly of the oldest boy, stating that he is SO, SO driven to… HELP… “OTHERS”.  He was the oldest, alright.  Probably 7, maybe 8 yrs. old!

Yep, this young boy, excitedly, helped his mom with the items in their cart by first helping to empty the cart and then by placing bagged items back into the cart in preparation to vacate the store.  WOW!!!  Most young kids require verbal prompting to help in that manner at the store.  NOT “THIS” young boy.  “HE”… was different.

It seems this young boy has made quite an impression on that cashier during previous shopping excursions.  He, evidently, makes it a priority to assist ANYONE…WHO NEEDS HELP.  He once helped an elderly woman with her bags in the check-out lane.  He did not even know her.  He just wanted to help, so he approached her, independently, to ask if he could put the bagged items into the cart for her.  OMG, folks!!!  This young boy has surely been blessed by the Lord.  What I find truly amazing is that he… “GETS IT” already!!!  At such a young age.  AND… he is acting on this gift that has been bestowed him.  AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!

I… stood there speechless.  In TOTAL AMAZEMENT!!!  SPEECHLESS!!!  GOD IS GOOD, folks.  GOD IS REAL GOOD!!!

P.H.P., folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

GO TEAM BEAVER TOYOTA!!!

OMG, folks!!!  So, so much to blog about as MANY ideas are currently FLOODING my brain.  “ALL”… related to EVERYDAY PEEPS out there living their EVERYDAY lives!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN!!!  WHAT AN AMAZING WEEK… of PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE… P.H.P.!!!  AMAZING GRACE!!!

Our family caravan has been in need of repairs for… awhile.  These “repairs”  HAD to be completed BEFORE my husband and son drive it to West Virginia on a Boyscout camping trip next weekend.  So, I stopped in to Beaver Toyota, here in St. Augustine, FL on Wednesday, my day “OFF” work, which I refer to as part of… “THE TWILIGHT ZONE” post that was just published 6/13/14.  Hhhmmm.  Okay now… “THIS”… is gonna be another “TRIP” to… “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  Let us begin by entering… “THE JILL ZONE” (Pppsssttt…I just came up with “THE JILL ZONE” today while at work!)  HA!!!  “TODAY”… was such a “FUN” day… at “WORK”!!!

So… I stop in to the Service Dept. at “BEAVER TOYOTA,” here in St. Augustine on Wed. (my day “OFF” work) to get the van repaired.  Now… I simply LOVE this new “TEAM” (BEAVER) who has recently taken over at the local Toyota dealership.  “THEY”… ARE AMAZING!!!  BAM!!!  They first saved me $$$ to fix the front seat air-bag system.  Too confusing to explain.  I am, however, impressed with their honesty.

Then I had them check the back-seat, automatic sliding door.  It has been broken for awhile now.  Just thought I’d better get “THAT” fixed before the scouts load into the van for their trip to West Virginia next weekend.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  The tech.???  Well, he diagnosed the automatic sliding door “problem” so, so quickly.  AND… he saved me EVEN MORE $$$ by simply turning the switch back to the “ON” position!!!  AND THEN???  He showed me exactly where that switch was located.  Just in case it happens again!!!  :/

OMG, folks!!!  There I go again… making a complete FOOL of myself!!! Not only to the employees working my case, but I am also pretty sure the entire waiting room… FULL of customers… got a good chuckle out of that “GOOFY” exchange between myself, the service tech. and the repair tech.  Stay with me, folks.  IT DOES NOT END THERE!!!

Oh yeah, and the SHUTTLE VAN driver… WAS ALSO AMAZING!!!  So, so funny!!!  I kid you NOT!!!  (Pppsssttt… I think we “bonded”).  He “shuttled” me about 2 miles to and from work that day, round-trip.  He even told me a funny story about… “talking to himself”  😉

What another great experience in dealing with professionals who go out and give the best of themselves for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!  GO TEAM BEAVER TOYOTA!!!  Hhhmmm.  Repair work on a vehicle doesn’t make my top 10 list of “FUN” things to do, HOWEVER… “FUN” IS WHAT I HAD at BEAVER TOYOTA in St. Augustine, FL this past week…while having the van repaired!!!

WOW!!!  “LIFE”… IS AMAZING, folks.  Try to enjoy as much of it as possible.  Please try to find the “GOOD” in every situation.  “IT” is there.  CAN “YOU”… FIND IT???

P.H.P, folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
