Who Is It Wednesday: McDonald’s Drive-Thru Workers

On my way to work this morning, I stopped at McDonald’s to pick up a hashbrown and an iced tea.  (Yeah, I know.  The breakfast of champions.)  It was 34 degrees this morning and the wind was whipping pretty hard.  Even though the drive-thru line was long, I was willing to sit in it because it meant I wouldn’t have to leave the warmth of my car.  When I pulled up to the window, the person taking my order was decked out in about three layers of clothes, topped off by a fleece McD’s jacket and black fuzzy mittens.  She only opened her window once she saw that mine was completely down and as soon as I began to pull away, she quickly shut her window.  The person that took my money was similarly dressed and was very quick with the opening and shutting of her window too.  I hate being cold and I can only imagine what it must be like to work at a drive-thru window during the winter. 

So today, I send a big and sincere thank you to fast food drive-thru workers everywhere.  You endure the cold so folks like me can get food and still be warm.

Who Is It Wednesday: Jerry

Kent Allan Rees

It’s #WhoIsIt Wednesday over on my Facebook page.  Today I asked, “Who Is It that makes your world a better place?”.  Today, my friend, Jerry, was that person.

I got a call in the middle of the day today from Jerry.  The whole purpose of his call was to tell me he really appreciated something I did for him.   That call totally brightened my day.

There are plenty of reasons I am thankful for Jerry.  He supports me in everything I do, unless I shouldn’t be doing it.  He shoots straight with me and tells me when I’m wrong.  But today, I am thankful for him because he took the time to voice his gratitude for me.
