On a recent Saturday morning at Shaw’s, a few customers and staff were privileged to witness a heartwarming event. The cashier’s line was short, but taking a long time, prompting us to pay attention to what was holding it up. An elderly customer was confused and upset because her credit card was repeatedly denied, and watched helplessly as the staff tried to make it work by removing items from her cart.
The angel next in line quietly and with a kind hug paid for this woman’s entire purchase, then went on her way receiving barely a “thank you.” She simply said she hoped some day someone might do something like that for her. I hope we are all encouraged to remember that sentiment.
