Now today wasn't exactly one of those days, but it wasn't full of rainbows and sunshine.
I could go on and whine about everything that went poopy today, but instead let's focus on one special moment.
At the grocery story checkout line I had to ask the clerk for another cart to lug all of the food I bought to feed my clan. I was gearing up to lug 2 carts full of food, a toddler and an infant to the car. In life I've gotten used to just rolling with it. Today was one of those days.
I heard a kind voice of an older woman ask if she can help me take the groceries to my car. Oh course at first I told her I was ok and can manage. Afterall she had her own cart and let's face it, she was in her 80s. I didn't want to bother her.
She insisted. I gave in and agreed for her help. She waited patiently as I took my youngest daughter on the penny horsey ride I had promised earlier to her.
She smiled and we chatted. She told me that she has 4 kids and she understands what life is like for me.
She affirmed me and helped me. And 10 hours later I can't stop thinking about the woman wearing the black wind cap. The one who showered me with kindness. The one who showed me love when I needed it most. The one who reminded me of Jesus.
Thank you kind woman at Meijer for impacting my life today.
My life was changed by three little words, "Can I help?"
