Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to apologize quickly.  I was hoping to have a good experience when in public.  When I picked this challenge it was because it bothers me that there seems to be a lack of courtesy in the world at times.  I once overheard a guy complaining that I was blocking the aisle with my cart.  He went on and on until I finally made eye contact with him, letting him know I could hear him.  I hadn't even been blocking the area.  I was kind of shocked at his rudeness.  Anyhow, the point is I've decided to be quick to apologize to strangers even if I don't think it's my fault because I would rather over-apologize than promote blatant rudeness.  I didn't have a life-altering experience this week, but I did think about it a lot.

This week's challenge is to give someone some flowers to plant.  Yes, we're getting pretty specific here.  I don't think it would be too hard to do.  You see flowers in the plastic containers ready to be planted all over right now.  They're usually $1-2.  Wouldn't it be fun if someone dropped some off for you?  Let's spread some spring love.  You could even go the extra mile and plant some for someone.

Alright now.  Did anyone have a good experience with apologizing last week?  We'd love to hear about it.

Thanks for reading.
