There is still good in the world

Not really having the best days lately but trying as hard as I can to be happy.

In my hopes of having an ok day yesterday I invited my brother to go food shopping with me. At least I would have someone to talk to.

Since times are a little rough right now for us financially, we are on a tight budget which means I only had $50 for groceries this week. That's barely anything considering I have to get pediasure for Bentley and that stuff is expensive to say the least.

To keep Bentley calm while shopping and asking for junk food, which we can't afford, I bought him a happy meal, don't judge. So right the. I was down to $46 for food for the week.

I went about my shopping and figured I would get what was on my list and when I got to the counter I would put the must haves in the front and the other stuff towards the back. I told the cashier I only had $45 so to stop at that. It got $45 and I still had maybe 7 items left so I said sorry and that I couldn't get them. I wasn't sad cause this is something that has been happening a lot lately. I figure they could wait till next week.

I paid and grabbed my bags and left.

As I was walking out the cashier run up to me and handed me a bag. At first I thought I had left a bag since I normally do but no it was the stuff I wasn't able to pay for. She told me the lady behind me had paid for it.

Well that was enough to bring on tears galore. I run up to that wonderful lady who just so happened to look so much like my mother-in-law and gave her a hug and told her how much that meant to me. All she said was "oh honey no problem and Merry Christmas".

My faith in people has been restored there really are nice people out there. Made me feel so loved and grateful.

I will make sure to pass that forward at some point.
