Overwhelmed

I decided to eat a lot at breakfast last Friday.  Because of that, I was still not hungry at lunch so I skipped it.  When I was finally hungry, I wanted something from Gotohaus, a restaurant selling congee that is owned by a former employee of our company/workplace.  Gotohaus not only sell congee but also pansit canton (fried noodle) and other kinds of noodles.  According to my senior, the pansit canton there is delicious.  I got curious and so I wanted to try it.  I ordered that but the delivery man bought a different kind of noodle.

Now one thing about me is that when it comes to food, I want mine to be exactly as I want them.   In a fastfood, when I say drumstick, I want drumstick.  If they don’t have it, I go to other fastfood.  I can go to great lengths just to get the food that I want.  That is how I am with food.  That when I want this particular brand, I would walk the distance to eat what I want and just so I could save time, I would eat while walking as long as I’m eating/drinking what I want. 🙂

I could be like that in so many things.  When I am really into something, I would do my best to get what I want.  I could stay still, wait for a long time, endure the rudeness of people just to get what I want.

That’s why I get frustrated whenever simple requests could not be made when they say they could.  But this time, I have no choice.  I could not return the noodle and besides I was also hungry.  It tasted good but I could not appreciate it.  I was not smiling as I was eating it.  So to change my sulkiness, I decided to buy a cracker with fillings and just end my hunger.

I went on with my daily activities satisfied with the cracker.  After an hour or so, one of our seniors entered the office and informed us of the pansit that were given to us as a farewell treat.  One of our areas are transferring to another area away from us.  It’s still within the workplace but it is farther from us now.

We were already full so we refused to get pansit. But I asked my senior if it was pansit canton, and she said she wasn’t sure.  After a while, our senior entered again this time carrying a load of…guess what…pansit canton!!! 🙂

I was thinking, Oh my God, I am touched.  🙂 You really took the time to give me what I want.  You are so kind to me.  Thank You.

God really made it possible to give me pansit canton just so I would finally eat what I want.  I was craving for a pansit canton and now God sent me a pansit canton.

It seems petty I know, but as little as that, He’s willing to give me, how much more for larger things.  I felt ashamed though because I was sulking and acting a little bratty

God is real.  And He loves us  Big time. 🙂

Happy sunday everyone! 🙂
