My work gives me so much joy! This time it was at Pharmaca. I was privileged to be part of a beautiful redemptive moment today between one of my favorite customers with a newborn (I’ll call her Serena), and another brand new customer (who I’ll call Hannah) that I will never forget. Hannah whom I’d been helping a bit earlier took a moment to help Serena in a way that blessed me initially just in seeing them share common experiences of motherhood. But there was so much more going on than I realized. Thankfully Hannah came back into the store a few minutes later to share a critical element of the story that I might have missed if she had not cared enough to share.
Did I leave you hanging? Enough time has gone by that it’s like we’re in a new TV season and it’s time to resolve the cliff hanger. Well I’m sure I’m not that riveting in my blog posts (yet!) 😉 But I do want to continue my story.
So to catch you up from part 1, one lesson from Healing at the Bottom of a Dishpan was to choose empowerment rather than persecution. Instead of being a victim of a dishwasher fiasco, complete with shame, defeat and a scarcity viewpoint, I chose to get creative – avoiding the Drama Triangle and instead choosing to work in the mindset of Co-creator. But there was more! So this idea of being a Creator/Co-creator doesn’t end with the first creative choice. It flows and moves into more, much more in this case. Healing at the bottom of a dishpan, part 2!
