Today I got invited by my daughter in law and her two kids to have lunch at my favorite place. When we arrived it was packed. There were no empty seats.
I became a little anxious as I knew I only had about half an hour before my sugars became too low. People kept coming in and it seemed everything began running in slow motion.
I finally talked to a waitress and explained my diabetes . She immediately got us a table. I was slightly embarrassed as I don’t like to make myself stand out, but I also knew I could end up on the floor.
We got our food with what seemed like only seconds from the order time. I wondered to myself if the waitress was familiar with diabetes . When we were done eating, I thanked her for all she had done.
You may be asking yourself why didn’t she go earlier. Well the only thing I can say is familiarity . I frequently visit this place and have never seen such a crowd. I actually thought I had the timing down pretty good ,but I was wrong. It all worked out, so thank you God and sweet waitress.
I started to pick up the bill to see what my portion was and the little waitress came over and asked if she could see it first. I handed it to her and she smiled big and said, no charge.
I said, what? What do you mean? My sugars weren’t your problem. She said a gentleman you know who was sitting near by you, paid your bill.
I asked immediately who it was and she told me he didn’t want me to know. So if you are the gentleman who payed it forward today with me, I thank you so very much.
We left and went to Walmart and looked at Christmas decorations . I got a couple of small gift bag gifts, then I hugged the girls, and thanked my daughter in law for the invite and came home.
When I arrived my son and his family were hanging up Christmas lights around the outside of the house. Yes, it is early to turn them on, but not too early to use the less chilly days to do outside decorating. My legs were weak from so much standing and walkimg, so after watching for a little bit , I came in and napped. Now supper has ended, bathing over and my family is t rating me to an ice cream treat from Ritters. Honestly , it was an easy rolling Sunday, but inside my heart, I feel blessed.
