Good Things Still Happen
In today's time, not much good news is shown. Seems all that is reported is the bad stuff. However, there is still lots of good in our world. Just never know when it will show up.
One day last week, I was eating out. Lots of customers in the restaurant. After I had finished, the waitress cleared the table, I asked for my ticket. She informed me it had been paid by a young couple. What a nice surprise! Had no idea who they were. Did not get to thank them as they were already gone. Their act of kindness meant a lot to me.
Later on in the week, I needed gas. It was one of those terribly cold and rainy days. Not my kind of weather. I pulled up to the pump and was dreading to get out in the cold. On the other side of my pump was a gentleman getting gas. He told me to stay in my car and he would pump my gas. I was happy to let him. At least, I had the opportunity to thank him.
As most of you know, you need a membership card to shop at Sam's Club. I do not have one as their quantities of products are too large for me. Once in awhile they will run have a coupon in the paper for you to be their guest for a day. They did that just recently. My sister usually comes each Saturday for our outing together. I told her about this and she wanted to go. She needed some things for special occasions. The only draw back on using this guest pass is they charge you a 10% service fee plus taxes. When they are combined, you are not saving too much. However, we went. I did find a few things I could store for future use. Needless to say, we managed to fill our buggy. Still, sister forgot something. I stayed with the buggy while she went to get the item. While I was waiting, one of the young men from the bank I use saw me. We were talking and I told him we did not have a card and the extra charges we would have to pay. Said he had a card and would take care of it. He took our buggy to the self-check out counter, personally ran all the items through and used his member card. We were truly blessed as it saved a lot. After that, he went with us to my car, unloaded all the things, and took the buggy back inside. I was so thankful as it too was a cold day. I told him I would try to be nicer to him next time I was in the bank. His reply,"it would not be the same. I like you giving me a hard time".
