Made my day!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

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.

    Beautiful and reading this made me smile.

    I was in a business meetings all week and just made it home today. We had a team building exercise assembling bicycles. We put together about 50 bikes. When everyone finished we talked about the roles everyone played etc. As we were presenting they opened the doors and in came 50 children. Turned out that the bike were for the YMCA and the children chosen to receive the bikes were from low income families. There was not a dry eye in the place and the children were so happy.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. If we all shared more - what a wonderful world this would be.
