Sometimes life moves extremely fast and everything around you seems to be flying by. It's not until someone stops you and does something extremely nice, that it makes you realize that things don't always have to move at warp speed. Today I decided to venture to the grocery store. (No big deal right?) Wrong......It all seemed to be going pretty smoothly and we only had one tantrum, so we were doing pretty good. An hour later I was at the check out stand and there were not enough baggers so I ended up bagging my own groceries. Mean while Sophie is running around the cart saying " Mommy I want a sticker!" Over and over again. Finally I went back to the register to pay for it all and I look down and realize.....I HAVE NOTHING! No ID, No cash, No credit card, No checkbook. I stood there frozen....I had no idea what to do....After being at the store for what felt like forever and finally having all my stuff in the cart, along with my kids I was completely embarrassed. I soon realized that I had an extra check book in my car, so the check out lady watched my kids and I ran out in the rain to grab it. I didn't realize that the checkbook was useless with no ID! AARRGG what was I going to do...I was about in tears when the Lady behind me turned me around and said "I paid for your groceries." It's not like I had like two things in my cart. My cart was completely full and the total amount was pretty pricey. I stood there ready to cry..This woman didn't know me from Adam, and here she was paying for my Food!! I truly look forward to that day when I can bestow that same kindness for someone else.
***I did write her a check for the total amount and she will be getting her money back. But Thank you to Bethany Smith for being an amazing example of Kindness!!!!
