We all know this is the season of giving. People are cheerful givers. Well, last night as the cashier checked me out at Whole Foods, she handed me $0.10 in change. Wait….I was making my purchase with free coupons for a few items, I should not have received change, but she had given me credit for using my own bag. I know it was only $0.10, but I was thrilled. This has not happened in a while. I then turned to my son and handed him the dime.
As we walked out of the store, there stood a gentleman asking for donations of $1.00. I told him, I did not have any cash. As my son approached, he put the dime in the red box. In an instant, I could hear the gentleman say, “Praise God! Yes, teach them while they are young.” He was thrilled over my son’s small donation.
Although, the man was asking for a donation, he gave us a gift as well. I will forever remember this and so will my son.
Happy Friday and Happy Holidays
Don’t be afraid to be free!!!
