A Realization Of JOY.

I frequent 2 local Mavericks. And really for only one thing. A huge diet pepper. Many times I have my cup with me to refill. Many times I pay the full price. But besides the diet pepper, there is one other thing that has remained consistent. The men.

Don't worry. This is a good post!

Whenever there is a man in front of me or behind me, going in or out of the door, they ALWAYS hold the door. Always. Okay. Maybe once a guy went in right in front of me and didn't hold the door. But every single other man has. Just think about it. Women's lib has all but destroyed a woman's chance of being adored and treated with great respect. But at Maverick, I beg to differ. How can you not find Joy in that?!

Just today, a man walked through the front door just as I was getting out of the Durango. And when I got to the door, he came back and opened it for me. Do you see? How do you not find Joy in that?!

So I will continue to frequent Maverick. For the diet pepper. And for the men.

By the way, I am way lucky enough to be married to just such a man! And that gives me even more Joy!

My story is the exact same except the drink would be Diet Coke!!! It does my heart good too! It's wonderful to see gentlemen still exist!!!

Jason used to say..."women are all feminists until you wait for men to open the door for you." I am a feminist and yet- appreciate these gestures. And- I return the favor...often opening doors for men....esp. men with children.

I LOVE that! How awesome that there are still guys like that. That's the kind of guy I want to raise.
