Happy Girl

There is a young woman who works at our local Walmart. She is perpetually happy. So much so, that for a long time, I would avoid her line because it just got so annoying. Then I realized how hard it is to be happy all the time. How hard it is to treat each customer as if you are tickled to see them. And I decided to purposely choose her every chance I get.

She always asks how you are, and is smiling. She always asks you about your family and will tell you a little about hers, but not much. She takes her time checking you out. I like that very much in this fast paced world.
She always folds the receipt neatly, and before handing it to you, tells you to have a very blessed day. She lifts spirits in her own small way and I know God smiles at her constantly.



Her name is Jamie, and she's a happy girl. I heart her.

I do hope that somehow Jamie gets to read this post. What a tribute to her, Belinda. Have a Christ-filled weekend.

Having worked in the retail industry most of my life, I can assure you it is very hard to stay happy. People come in angry at the world and take it out on the cashier.Or take the cost of their groceries out on the cashier.

Good for you for being an encouragement to her as well.
