I started the day by going to the Hair Salon for a cut and color.
The hairdresser and I made small talk, and then she discovered that she had put the wrong color dye on my hair. She started freaking out. I told her, “Don’t worry, it’s only hair; it grows back.” She washed the dye out and started over.
So after that she really opened up: her boyfriend cheated on her and left her, etc. Heartbreaking.
When I left, I gave her a $20 tip. Crazy, right. She was sooo happy. It wasn’t about the money, but that somebody cared. And listened.
I felt so good the rest of the day—better than I have felt in decades.
I left the Hair Salon, and went to the Tire store to buy new tires for the front of my car. (My son had driven over a curb, and blew out the front tire.) The guy at the tire place gave me a $20 discount on each tire, plus $20 off the price of the front end alignment (which it needed badly).
While we were waiting for the tires, my son and I went to the restaurant where he works. His manager gave us the employee discount–even though he’s only supposed to get it on the days he works.
My husband also got notification—the same day– for a job interview for a great position.
AND: My ex-husband even sent money that he had owed me for 4 years!!
So yes, miracles do happen.
