I received a blessing at the grocery store yesterday morning. I was waiting in line behind a woman who reminded me of my friend Lori, who is a sparkly magical woman. I saw she had Shoprite store gift cards. I thought, “Good for her. Someone blessed her with gift cards before Christmas.” While I was waiting, I looked at the tabloids and felt thankful that I’m not a celebrity. 😊 The lady left without a word to me.
I made nice with the cashier. We talked about the weather. The cost of my groceries was $43.65. The cashier swiped a store gift card. I saw it lying by the cash register, so I thought it had a zero balance because the lady in front of me had used it. The store card had a $35.55 balance. And it was for me.
The cashier says, “Your total is $8.10.” My jaw dropped. “What?”
“The lady who just left said to give it to you. Merry Christmas!”
Stunned. Happy. Joyous. Grateful. I was all of those things. The cashier and a few other ladies said some very nice things about the lady and about me. I am so happy right now.
