I witnessed the nicest thing today, that absolutely made my day! I was working the cash register at the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store, and was ringing up a young mother who had a 6-month-old baby with her. She was buying some clothes for the baby, and a few shirts for herself. She was being very careful about how much money she was spending, and her purchase came to about $7.50. Before she could give me her money, the woman in line behind her handed me $20 and said, “I’d like to pay for her things.” The young mother looked surprised, but smiled and said “Thank you” to the woman. It certainly made my day, and judging from the reactions of the other customers , it made everyone feel pretty good! It's nice to know that there are such nice people in the world.
