Mornings with Mr. T

January 26, 2018


I never thought of myself as religious, but when it comes to 

coffee, I am exactly that.  I "gottahava Wawa" coffee every

morning.  My dog loves it because we go to Wawa before 

sunrise and then I watch the sunrise with Vivaldi playing

through my earbuds, while she runs around the local park,

free, without any leash.  


So, every morning there is a man who opens the door for 

people at the Wawa, named Mr. T.  I speak to him 

each day and give him crackers.  This morning, I just felt

like I wanted to give him a Wawa gift card.  He called out

to me when I came in and I told him that I would see him

in a minute.  As I came out of the store, ready to give him

the card, he spoke first and said, "I was just going to ask you

if I cuold buy you a cup of coffee."  I was speechless.....

He was going to buy me and coffee and I was giving him 

a gift card.  


I did, in fact, give Mr. T the gift card and we spoke for a 

few minutes.  He wanted to do something and I told him

that he could pay it forward.  I realized in that moment,

that many people want to know the joy of giving.  He 

wanted to give something to me.  We made a connection.


The next time I see Mr. T, I will let him buy me a coffee if

he asks, because that's how we do pay it forward and 

change our world-one coffee at a time.  I hope that he

will soon get his truck and continue in construction.  I 

know that means I won't see him any more.  But that will also

mean that he is moving on to better things-like abundant life!
