This past Sunday, we were going to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. Like many others, times are a little rough financial wise, so we were just
having a family dinner, followed by watching scary movies ,as it was also Halloween.
My daughter had been given some money as a gift and we decided to do the sensible thing and I took her to Walmart in the hopes of finding her a much
needed pair of winter boots. Usually there are various styles and price points so I figured she had enough money to buy something.
Much to my dismay, I was shocked at the prices. Nothing low end. All styles were priced more than she had to spend. There really isn't many other
options for shopping either.
So I was not happy, but still trying to convince her that we would find a suitable pair somewhere else.
About ten minutes later while still walking through the store, I got a tap on the shoulder.
A woman said to me, " Can I talk to you for a minute? I overheard your conversation with your daughter about not being able to afford the winter
boots...so here you go!"
With that she placed a gift card for $50 with the receipt into my hand.
To say I was overwhelmed with gratitude is an understatement. I really wanted to hug this sweet woman.She literally must have ran to the checkout to
purchase the card and ran back to the back of the store to find us. I thanked her so profusely. I have never experienced such a random act of
So yes, my daughter did buy a perfect pair of winter boots for herself.
In recognition of this generous soul, I took to the local social media page to thank her publicly. Even though I never got her name, nor she mine, it
didn't matter. I wanted everyone to know there are still good, kind, unselfish people amongst us. Many people loved to hear what we experienced and
it has spun off into more random acts of kindness in the last two days. I myself, have pledged to pay it forward as well when I am able to. Kindness
can be more contagious than a virus....❤
