Tuesday’s Thoughts!

My thoughts today are brought to you from my adorable great-nephew. He was out with his Daddy the other day at Starbucks. They were behind a lady in line who had been scrolling and scrolling through her phone while waiting in line. Her turn came and she boldly stated, ” Its my birthday, I want my free Starbucks.”   The barista looked at her and said, “Excuse me.”  So she repeated herself,  “Its my birthday I want my free Starbucks.”   She went on to say that she heard that there is some app that you can get and you get free Starbucks. The barista asked if she had their Starbucks app. “No, but its my birthday and I want something free,so I want a free Starbucks.”  He explained to her how that wasn’t exactly how it worked, but she persisted and she did end up walking away with something free. After my nephew’s Daddy ordered his Starbucks, my 4 year old nephew looked up at him and said, “Daddy if that lady wanted something free, I could have given her a free hug!”

I am really thinking that sometimes children should rule the world!

  1. Oh my gosh, thanks for this wonderful true story. I get so mad when I come across “entitled” people like that “birthday lady,” but your great-nephew knows the right way to respond, for sure. Priceless. The hug and the re-counting of it. xo

  2. Tuesday’s Thoughts on Thursday! My most often re-quoted words these days seems to be the ones spoken by the White Rabbit of Alice in Wonderland fame…”The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.” #1, #9 and #10 are my favorites, although all are meritorious. I will offer my humble opinion and I am sure that many disagree with me, as is their right to do so. On quoting from people with positions in their lives that may be vastly divergent from ours, I will offer two quotes from two minds greater than my own. 1) Jodi Picoult : “We may not see eye to eye, but we can respect each other’s opinions and find truth in them.” 2) Aristotle : “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Thank-you!
