the coolest thing.

the coolest thing happened to me yesterday. i went to wal mart to buy some stuff i needed. i couldn’t find some magnets, so i decided to get some help. i looked down the aisle and found a lady on a ladder stocking some shelves. “Excuse me,” i said. she looked at me, shook her head NO, and mouthed something. As I was looking at her, i realized that she was trying to tell me that she was deaf. “No problem,” i thought. my sign language is not great by any means… but if i don’t know the word, i figure i could just spell it, right? so i quickly spelled the word ‘magnets’ to her. her eyes lit up and she realized that i could indeed talk to her. she seemed so happy to come down the ladder to help me. it melted my heart to see how anxious and excited she was.

that made my day. who knew my little knowledge of sign language could be so uplifting? 🙂
