Random Act of Kindness

Random Act of Kindness

I was flabbergasted! Frustration had been following me everywhere. Then I dropped my groceries on the store floor – two chicken suppers (on special) and an onion! I gathered it together and asked a gentleman in the checkout line if I might place my groceries on the checkout counter beside his because I was having difficulty holding them. He insisted that I check out ahead of him, and I hesitantly acquiesced. The clerk poked in my purchases, and then a large item of his, so I pointed out to her that the latter was not mine. The gentleman then told her he was paying for my purchases. I was dumbfounded and didn’t know what to say, so I asked him if he were Santa Claus – he had a neat little beard. I shook his hand.

Now I want him to know that I have given $20 to the Food Bank – passing on a random act of kindness!!
