My Sanctuary

Do you have a happy place? I do. It's my pharmacy. I love that place. I was just there yesterday. As I pulled up I thought to myself, "this little sanctuary just gives me warm and fuzzy feelings." I think pharmacies rest on holy ground. All those pills. It's just a sight of beauty. Just looking at it all can bring you comfort, because whatever ails you can be remedied by one of those little bottles. I'm just a person who believes that there is a pill for everyone. Sometimes, there's a couple.

I previously used my pharmacy at my grocery store. Once I moved to Houston, I started using the pharmacy at the Walgreens. This store is fantastic. Did you know that you can buy bras at the Walgreens? It's true. The first time I saw them, I actually thought they were cantaloupe carriers because they were so big. I had no idea underwire could stretch so far.

The cute people at my pharmacy know me by name. Of course they do, I love them. About a month ago I sent Todd for the pickup. The pharmacy people asked him if I was feeling well. He was bewildered and asked, "she's fine, why do you ask?" They responded, "well, we haven't seen her in a little while, so we got worried." Ah, isn't it nice when someone cares about you...

So, in honor of all the pharmacies out there, I think we need to show them the respect they deserve. Put your hand over your heart when you drive by, and make sure you pick up a bra the next time you stop in.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Walgreens!!!! The pharmacist, Greg, calls me by name as soon as I walk in..."Hi Mrs. Leland, are you picking up or dropping off today? How are the kids? How are the boys doing with baseball?" Seriously, Aaron is a little concerned.

Hi Lisa: LOVE.YOUR.BLOG!! Now that I've found it, I can properly start stalking it!! Sounds like things are going well for your in TX. Not to make you jealous or anything, but we have a Walgreens within 5 minutes WALKING distance. I love my Walgreens too. They are all over Chicagoland--one on every corner here, just like churches in Utah. FYI: I believe in pills too. Tell Todd and the girls hi! --Joy
