Help yourself to a blessing

I did my volunteer stint at the specialty clinic yesterday. It was an uneventful day for the most part. People come in and pass the lobby desk where I am parked in my maroon vest, ready and eager to help.

There is a woman who comes in regularly and each time stops to ask me which floor her doctor's office is located on. I'm not sure if she is doing this as a courtesy to me as her way of acknowledging my usefulness, or if she is simply that forgetful. I suspect it is the latter.

Later, she came back down to the lobby after her appointment to wait for her ride. She came over to me and said, "A million dollar's worth of blessings on you to go spread it around".

I thanked her and for a moment felt quite honored that this sweet, balmy lady said that to little ol' me. A short time later, the Security Guard came by and she went up to him and pronounced $14 million worth of blessings.

Oh well, help yourselves to your share of my million dollars worth and be generous to yourselves. One can never have too many blessings!

She could tell you are so rich in spirit already that you needed only a million -- that poor other guy needed 13 million more to catch up to you!
