Hope your weekend is off to a good start.
Today I wanted to share with you something amazing that happened.
It couldn't have come at a better time either. What with all the sad news, the attacks first in Paris a few weeks ago, and then the tragic shootings in California a few days ago, it is easy to become jaded.
So I thought I would share this with you, a reminder that goodness, and good people, still exist.
Hubby and I were in line at the grocery store yesterday, with our cart heaped full.
There was a young woman that got in line directly behind us, with just a few things in her hands.
I told her to go ahead of us, and thought nothing more of it.
Well, as we were paying for our groceries, the cashier told us that the girl who'd been ahead of us had paid $40 towards our purchase! I had to have him repeat what he said, as it took a second to sink in!
I was floored!
What an amazing and generous gift that girl gave!
We could hardly believe that a stranger would be so kind, and to do it without wanting any accolades either
(she of course had already left).
To say that gave us a lift is an understatement!
I assured the cashier that we would spread the kindness for sure.
We are having fun thinking of ways that we can reach out and pass the good will on to others.
I think no matter how much or how little we give, it is just the act alone that counts.
Helping others, being kind, caring, and respectful all go a long way to helping spread peace.
In all honesty, I had begun to lose faith in people, with all of the terrible violence in the news especially of late. Peace on earth has come to seem like only an unreachable dream.
This young woman gave a gift more meaningful than a dollar amount. Not to sound cheesy, but she truly helped restore my faith that there are indeed many wonderful, kind souls out there.
It all starts with just one person, and one kind act, right?
We can all make a positive difference, I truly believe that.
Praying for those who have lost loved ones.
Let's spread peace, ok?
