First let me say that I am a born again christian and try to follow what JESUS would have me do ..I fail him daily, yet he picks me up and says try again my child !!!! knowing that he is closer to me than the air I breathe !that I am just dust designed by my Redeemer!! Remember when reading my blogs they are not wrote correct but from the heart ! I need lessons in writing correctly and making these interesting. I grew up in a small town and everyone knowing my family to come to a state with my husband that I knew almost no one I will say after 23 years its still hard ...I love to go back to KY as its where most of my family are I come from a large family of 9 me being the 9th ...

I love to laugh love being around good old friends and family I want enjoy each day as each day is a gift from the Master Creator !! my motto is I remain 29 forever !!!!! :)

Simple Pleasure Thursday 2-10-2011

My Simple Pleasure today is
Simply stopping to get gas
at a local gas station
this older gentleman
I would guess his
age to be in the 80's
still works the station everyday
He pumped my gas
I told him to have a good day
and he said young lady
everyday is a good
day when you are
my age
This just simply made my day
thinking how most people
his age would
not be as happy or
having a good day !!!

to each one
may you have a good
day each and every day

                                               May your day be filled with many Simple Pleasures


  1. So true. A good reminder for everyone as we all have much to be thankful for. Nice to meet you! Blessings, Mollye

  2. I love this! Reminds me of simpler times. What a wonderful example this gentleman is - living and sharing joy and gratitude for each day. Fantastic!

  3. This was a pleasure to read of. What a sweet man.

  4. It's all self-service over here. So that would be a pleaure in itself having someone fill your car for you - and with a smile - indeed a simple pleasure.

  5. I love this. It was wonderful just reading something so "everyday", IS such a simple pleasure, and it is.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love the elderly. They are so forthright that they make me smile.

    If he called me "young lady"? That alone would have been a great simple pleasure.

  7. I can't remember the last time I went to a station where someone pumped my gas. That alone would be a simple pleasure, but what a blessing to have this kindly gentleman wait on you. I love his attitude!


  8. Love it! This is terrific!
    God bless him!

  9. Oh! I wish I had someone to pump my gas! Fabulous!

  12. What a wonderful attitude he has! Good for him!
    Hope I feel like that at his age too :-)

  13. Glad you met this man who gave your day a lift. What a lovely way to look at life.
    God Bless
