I had such a wonderful morning today, like something out of the Pay it Forward movie that I just had to share.
We were in and out of our freezer meal swap in no time today so I headed to the bank and then to the CVS right across the street to stock up on bottled water. There was a limit of 2 cases, but the cashier let me buy as many as I wanted. GrocerySmarts must have a typo, because $2.22 for a case of water is the 2nd lowest price I’ve ever seen for bottled water, so I’m stocking my sis-in-law and our family up for the summer! Despite the 8 months prego belly, I was on a mission to get me some water at a great price!
So I go to check out and this lady says she’ll help me to my car. I know I know, beware of strangers! And then this man says he’ll help me too! Long story short, he wheels my cart to my car, the lady makes sure I’m okay and he loads the cases into my trunk. I tried to tip him the only bill I had and he wouldn’t take it! I couldn’t believe it- that people were willing to help me and that they wouldn’t take $$ for their help. I’m still in shock and I know this little incident is pretty insignificant to most, but to me it was an incredible act of service that reminds me that there still are nice people around. Lately I’ve had a doom and gloom we’re all on our own attitude, so this was just what I needed to get myself back in check. And you better believe I’ll be paying it forward. Here’s to hoping you are having a really great day too!
I’ve even done a ton of dishes and cleaned the guest bathroom today! And so far no nap for me- I’ve got energy and a ton to do before moving/ delivery day, which ever comes first!
