I had a good night. The best part for me was finding not one but two Christmas-y t-shirts at Old Navy in the clearance section. They both rang up at $2.95, so with my $5 reward, I paid a grand total of $.64 for both. Best deal ever.
I consider that a win. It may be sad that the highlight of my evening was a really good bargain, but I’m okay with that. I’ve learned to appreciate and give thanks for those small blessings that come my way.
I’ve heard that gratitude for lesser things opens the way for you to receive greater things. I’m not sure how that works, but regardless, I know that if God is faithful in the tiny details, He can surely handle the big stuff.
Plus, I have two more festive Christmas shirts to wear when the holiday season rolls around again in 10 or so months. Win-win.
