Act of Kindness

Posted on Sat, Dec 3, 2011 at 8:30 AM

Cheers to the generous man behind me in line at the General Store today
(11/27), whom I only know as "Jim". I did not have as much money on my
debit as I had thought, and my card was declined. I hurriedly checked my
(lacking) balance, and red-faced, turned to leave the store without the $54
worth of holiday gifts for my family of warm socks and kitchenware. You
graciously paid for my purchase, and disappeared with a smile into your
silver truck. I, shocked and speechless at such thoughtful kindness, cried
tears of joy in the parking lot before bussing home. Thank you for your
thoughtful giving to my family this season, "Jim". Your spontaneous gesture
has restored my faith in humankind.
