chocolate covered Joe Joe's,
cute Bonbon charms,
a very sparkly reindeer,
a very snuggly sleep sack,
Everyday Grace note cards,
and Sara Groves new Christmas CD.
So I went into Trader Joe's because it is one of my most favorite places to be.
And lo and behold, there were Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's with Candy Cane sprinkles on the top.
And I began to sweat a little. All of that chocolatey minty goodness in one box.
I filled the rest of my cart but really could no longer focus.
Because of the Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's with
Candy Cane sprinkles on the top.
And as I pulled my cart up to the register, the cashier looked at the Joe Joe's and looked at me and I looked at her and she said,
"Oh, no you didn't." And I said,"Yes...yes, I did."
And she said,"What are you doing to me? I've never seen these before."
And I said, "What am I doing to you? What is Trader Joe's doing to me?
They are taking me down. I am going down!"
Because who could resist a Joe Joe like that.
Then her friend came and started bagging and the cashier said,
"Have you seen these? Go get us a box. We are going to try one."
And I, emboldened by the thought of all that pepperminty chocolatey goodness said,
"What about me? I brought them up here."
And my best friend in the world Trader Joe's cashier said,
"Oh yes, you will have one. We are going to share them with the customers."
So I looked in the lady in line behind me and said, "You picked the right line!"
And right there in the midst of groceries, that lovely cashier started handing
out Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's with Candy Cane sprinkles on the top.
And it was if the Christmas heavens opened up and reigned down joy and loveliness
and God blessed us everyone. I heart that Trader Joe's cashier. I really do.
And I just can't keep all that Christmas love to myself.
