Today was a very full day. There were a few ‘chores’ sprinkled throughout, but much of the day was spent with friends. I had a walk and lunch with one friend. Turns out today was the final day of her divorce. I was shocked to hear that. Just one of those “coincidences” - and there were several more during the morning. It was good to be with her today.
As I was rushing home to shower and change for my next appointment, I noticed Pippy’s fuel gauge at the 1/8 full level. I knew I could make it to the next destination on that amount, but I would have greater peace of mind (and not have to fill up later tonight) if I fuelled then.
As I was pumping the gasoline, I was feeling guilty about spending several hours today just being with people who “fuel me”. I should be working on taxes, repairing things around the house, dealing with rental properties, etc. - not “goofing off”. Then I thought about the truck and how it needs regular fuelling and servicing to keep it running. Does our spirit need that as well? I feel that when MY gas tank is full, then I have the energy to go places and do things for other people.
As I was returning the nozzle to its holder, I remembered about Penny Finding and spoke to the Angels. “Hello. Uhhh… I’ve got a pretty full day today and don’t really want to spend any time searching. If you want a coin to be found, could you please do it here before I leave? Thank You”. I looked to the left of the pump and within 10 seconds I had a penny! I walked to the Driver’s side of the truck, opened the door and began to sit down. Then noticed a penny approximately 5 ft. from the truck. That’s their 2¢ Worth for today!!!
This evening I spent time with a wonderful friend and it was non-stop discussions on dozens of topics. For a few hours I was able to “Live in the Moment” and just enjoy the re-charging.
Question: What re-refuels YOUR spirit? A walk in a park? Time with an animal? Exercise? Warming other people’s hearts? ARKs (Acts of Random Kindness)?
