At the checkout in Wal-Mart the other day, a woman (apparently disabled and in a wheelchair) was checking out with her grandson (assumed) in front of us. She was having trouble with a gift card given to her (it appeared that there was NO money on it instead of the $50.00 there should have been). After several tries, the manager was unable to confirm the amount (if any) on the card, a stranger in the next lane came over. He had been listening to the conversation and asked “May I help?”. The woman tried to explain the situation to the gentleman. The man simply said, “No, I mean I just want to pay for your items”, (at $82.50). At that, the lady asked him “Why are you doing this FOR ME?” He replied, “Just live Blessed!”, paid the bill, then left.
Our grandchildren, witnessing this event, were amazed that someone would be so generous.
As my husband and I discussed later, if at all possible, would we have helped if we were financially able to do so?
WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?????
