Bumper Stickers



These are like the two bumper stickers I have on my car. Usually nobody really says anything to me about them, however someone did today.
I had my economics exam this morning and stopped at Meijer for white melting chocolate. I was walking up to my car when the lady in the car next to me gets out and says hi. So far this was not unusual - quite often people say hi to each other even when they don't know the other person. So, I unlock my car and go to get in when she says,
"I just wanted to tell you that my Boss is a Jewish Carpenter too, and my daughter is in the army. When I saw your bumper stickers my heart just soared!"
I thought that it was so cool that she took the time to stop wait for me to get back to my car to tell me that. I think that she had already been in the store and was leaving when she saw my car and decided to wait for me. People don't usually do things like that anymore these days. It made my day just a little bit better!

That is so neat - one of those little things people do that just makes your day!

That's so cool. I'd like a bumper sticker like that too but I don't think Dave would allow them!

Hi Heather, I am finally getting around to checking out your blog. I met your mother a few days ago, and we have had some good conversations by commenting on blogs and emails.

You are right about people not talking to you when you are shopping. I think that because this lady was a Christian, she was of kindred spirit, and felt you would be open to her comment. You have a good thing going on there with the bumper stickers. It was very nice of her to encourage you in that way.

Oh, by the way, I like your name. As a matter of fact, I named my daughter Heather. She just recently got a cat too. She named her Etta. She told me tonight that Etta is beginning to own her new home now and is becoming more friendly. Heather thinks that at first, Etta was missing her siblings and mother because she hid a lot and swatted Heather's hand.

It was nice chatting with you. Blessings,
Cheryl
