Just a thought to help start your week.
On our recent family trip to Washington, D.C., we again took advantage of a trolley tour company which we really like, and we got some great insight from each of our drivers into the specific oddities of the city.
One of our drivers told us that his day had been made when he saw the Oscar Mayer Weiner-mobile in town! (You know, it’s the “car” that is shaped like the giant hotdog!) Anyway, he said folks had laughed at him for stopping to take a picture of it. But, he said, “I live here. I get to see all these magnificent buildings and memorials and monuments every day. But how often do you get to see the Weiner-mobile?!”
I agree completely. And we actually saw it later, along with the new Planters Peanuts vehicle, too. In a world full of odd quirks — people included — stop to enjoy your surroundings.
So many things we take for granted because they are around us every day — like so many of God’s blessings. But then, every once in a while, along comes that Weiner-mobile. Be alert for the unusual. Enjoy those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to bring joy into someone else’s day. After all, how many chances do you get?!
Just a thought.
