It's been about 6 years now.....
....since the first time I met Mimi, now former owner of Rising Roll restaurant. I became a quick regular due to the incredible customer service (both by Mimi & her staff!) and the consistency of everyday, fresh lunches! Life is all about people and Mimi was always so upbeat and had something nice to say - always! She made my lunch experiences that much more special through her kind words!
A new phrase was coined!
It simply happened on a regular visit to Rising Roll (seeing Mimi). On my way out the door, Mimi said something kind, as always. I didn't want to answer her back with a blah, blah, blah, same old, same old line, so I put my arm up (like pointing upwards) and said loudly, "Mimi, you're the UP in my life!"
I walked out of Rising Roll that day laughing at myself for being downright goofy.
It hasn't been too long since that day. And now? I just could't get away from the phrase. So much so, I have designed stickers with this phrase, designed a coffee cup and have this phrase as a logo on my website. “Be the UP in someone’s life today!”
Friend, go up higher! Luke 14:10
