I earned a Gold Star.....


I really did not do much to earn it early this morning.

You see I was standing in the check out line with some groceries and the Sunday paper.

I had my coupon book (you can see it down there) with me; you never know when you can use a coupon.

The cashier removed it from the cart; I apparently was still a bit groggy because I forgot to remove it as I pushed the cart forward. I never leave it out of my site while shopping because I have learned my lesson the hard way. I can’t tell you how many small recipe boxes of coupons I lost over the years with my forgetfulness. *rolls eyes*

As the cashier passed my notebook of coupons back over to me she noticed all the dividers. I was asked nicely if I could show her how I have the inside all set up, not a problem.

I opened it up and showed it to her.

(This is where I earned my gold star.)

The gentleman behind me noticed my coupon holder and nodded his head in approval.

Then he looked at me and said, “You earn a gold star this morning for being organized.”

Aww… shucks.

I was a bit embarrassed when I thanked him but I have to say that he really made my day.

I haven’t had a gold star in years and it feels really good.
