I’ve just returned from a wonderful week in Albuquerque, NM, staying at the beautiful Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town. I was attending a conference but found some time to head into Old Town for a little shopping – I love the southwestern jewelry. We found a delightful little shop, Warpath on the Plaza, featuring some really pretty jewelry.
The sales clerk, Mary, was delightful. You know how some sales people can be – pushy, trying to get you to buy things you don’t really want.
Not Mary. I looked a a pretty ring and tried it on – Warpath Traders has a full length mirror and Mary encouraged us to “work it”. Wow, what fun, to model jewelry in front of that mirror. We were giggling up a storm and yes, we worked it in front of that mirror!
Janice and I liked a few pieces but were undecided. Mary suggested their other shop, Warpath on the Plaza. We walked up there and found an equally fun sales person named Carol. I told her about an outfit that I really wanted something to go with it and wow, what she found for me was amazing. I also tried on a really cute jacket among other things. I bet we spent a couple of hours in that store. Midway through our try ons, Mary walked over from the other store, to see how we were doing. To save us a trip, she brought all the items we favored from her store and we were able to chose things from both locations and conclude the deal in one place.
My friend Janice and I had so much fun, and the two sales people added to that experience. I am so aware that we can help anyone to have a spiritual experience, even a shopping trip! It doesn’t matter where I am, or who I am talking with, the situation can be enhanced or diminished because of my words and actions. I want to be a light in life, not a dark cloud.
I wonder if I might be part of someone’s spiritual experience today. I wonder if YOU might also be part of someone’s spiritual experience today – it could be right there under your nose, if you are open to it …
