Followed Through on a Prompting and Was Blessed

Yesterday when I picked up my prescriptions for the month, I also got a Shingles vaccine. I have to admit it stung and is still sore, but it is better than getting Shingles. Due to having chronic illness, the pharmacist asked me to wait 5 minutes before leaving to make sure I did not have any reaction.

A blessing before getting the shot was seeing my friend from Iran. She is a university student studying to be a Cardio Vascular Ultrasound Sonographer. It is always good to see her if she is working when I get my prescriptions. She works part-time as a Pharmacy Tech.

She came here five years ago with her parents and siblings as refugees from Iran due to religious persecution. They are Mandean. She and her family are my friends. I always enjoy visiting their home.

I tutored her in Spanish for her Spanish class. We laughed a lot as we studied. In two more years, she will graduate and being working in a hospital.

Just going out and about to run errands gives me opportunities to experience small blessings. In the morning, I hadn’t planned to get my refills, but the thought occurred to me while having coffee with a friend to do so. By following through on that thought, or should I say prompting, I was able to reconnect with my young friend and discuss visiting the family.

So even though the shot stung a lot, I am glad I went to the pharmacy yesterday. But I did not get a sticker or candy for getting a shot. Kids are do lucky. πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Praising God from whom all blessings flow, and praising Him for giving us eyes to see and recognize His hand at work in the small things in our everyday lives!

  2. I got my flu shot this year and I am happy that I did because I normally don’t for some reason. I love how unexpected moments bring you closer to God and people. Happy you ran into your friend. πŸ™‚

  3. Shots are not fun to take. I hate watching my kids get them more, though. Sounds like you had a meant to be moment, though. I love those! In fact, I had one of my own on my birthday when my husband and I didn’t have time to get to our original, out-of-town destination for lunch. We settled for a smaller restaurant in town. It was mostly deserted other than the one waitress. We had a wonderful, God-filled chat with her. Made all of our days. πŸ™‚

  4. Smiles. Humor me!.. Kids are indeed enjoying – I agree. πŸ˜‚
    Even when you visit a family and they give the kid with you and you the adult is left out πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

    How has been the week bro?

  5. I love that you have all of these wonderful connections with people of all ethnic backgrounds and that you share those stories hereβ€οΈπŸ™
