This morning in class, I was frantic trying to get things in order for advisory, since I had forgotten to prepare a key component of our session, so as students were calling my name, I was giving them the non-business, letting them know I couldn’t be bothered until I was done. Although they knew I was irritated, one of my students caught my attention by saying, “if you can read this, you can have it.” Even though I was still crazy, trying to get caught up, and told him “I don’t really have time to read anything”, I still took the ticket and read it, for some reason, maybe to humor him, maybe just so I could have this opportunity to blog about it later. Either way, what he handed me was a coupon for a free spicy chicken sandwich from Chik-Fil-A written entirely in Spanish. STILL irritated and not even understanding what was going on, I translated it into broken English, but I was accurate enough to impress him.
After how much it really took for him to get my attention, I’ve ended up with something I didn’t ask for, and wasn’t even in the mood to receive. Because I looked past myself just for a second, I received a little gift. There’s a sermon in there somewhere, but I just don’t have time to preach it. What I will make time to do though, is pick me up some waffle fries to go with this free ‘sammich’ tomorrow. SpitLIFE
