Valentine Blue Monday





Come on everyone and join me for a Blue Monday Valentine party. Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com has everything ready and waiting our arrival.


I spotted this truck going down the highway in front of me. The thing that caught my eye was it had a blue back with a heart in the middle. Driving and trying to get this shot was not easy. What we won't do for a Blue Monday feature.

I am sure some of you ladies received valentine greetings similar to this. However, mine was different. Each Saturday my sister and I spend our quality time together. We start the morning off with breakfast. Today (2-12) we went to Joe's Coffee Shop. We had been here before and enjoyed it. The place was packed with Saturday eating out folks. I have a little card that gives me a 20% discount on meals and other things.. When I went to pay, I gave the cashier (a man), the ticket and this card. He told me I did not need that. I thought perhaps what we ordered did not apply for its use. I then handed him my money. He stated you do not need that either. "Happy Valentine ladies". I went into shock and so did my sister. Why he picked us out of all the people there, still puzzles me. This just not happen very often. After I got my wits back together, I asked him could I give him a hug. He very graciously consented. We were truly blessed by a kind and caring gentlemen. He made our Valentine day!

How great is that??? Was it the Joe's Coffee Shop in Irving? Because we have one also!
Good for you and Happy Valentine....28 minutes early!

I enlarged the truck to get a better look at the heart. This is because I have practically risked my life for blog snaps, so I know the trouble you went to! What a wonderful treat in the restaraunt! Did you recognise the man? Maybe he recognized you as regular customers? I wonder if this was from the restaraunt or out of his own pocket? Anyway, that has to be a once in a lifetime thing!

I just love stories like that. I'll bet he just liked yall's looks and wanted to do something nice for you. Or maybe it had happened to him and he wanted to pay it forward. For whatever reason, it was a very nice thing to do.:)
And, it's wonderful that you and your sis spend quality time together. :)
xoxo bj

What a great story! My daughter turned 8 Friday, and we took her out for dinner last night. After the waitstaff sang to her, a woman leaving her meal handed my daughter a rolled up $20 bill. She congratulated my daughter on her birthday and told her that she wanted to give her the gift of a surprise kindness from a stranger and the even better gift of the joy that comes from passing that kindness on to another stranger. What a wonderful world! :)

Happy Valentine's Day to you!
It's because you're just too stinkin' cute for your own good and so sweet!
What a fun thing to happen! I would have jugged him, too!
I'll bet your feet don't touch the ground all week.
Good things happen to good people, and you're good people!
Hugs- Tete

Awww, LV,
That is wonderful! I'm sure you were picked because of your exhuberance and charm!
Happy Day to you truly!

Boo-Bah said...

What a nice story. I think it is so important to focus on the nice things that good people do. We always hear way too much of the negative things.
I had to laugh about you driving and trying to get a good shot of that blue heart. The things we do for the sake of blogging.
I hope you are having a wonderful Valentines day.

Thank you for your visit
