Act of generosity warms shopper’s heart
I awoke on a recent morning and wondered if what had occurred to me was a dream.
I had gone grocery shopping recently at Aldi’s.
After picking up a number of items, I proceeded to the checkout.
While awaiting my turn, I noticed that the customer in front of me was a young, attractive girl.
I placed my groceries on the conveyor and waited for the cashier to ring up my order.
From what seemed like nowhere, a soft voice said, “They’re paid for.”
It was the customer.
I said, “Oh, you can’t!”
But the cashier smiled and repeated what the customer had said: “They’re paid for.”
The customer, with a tear running down her cheek, turned and walked away.
The cashier helped me bag my groceries, and I went to my car, where I sat for a while — stunned and speechless.
Whoever you are, thank you.
In this year of mercy, God sent me an angel.
I thank him for you, and ask him to bless you.
What you did brought tears to my own eyes.
