All of my books so far have been fiction with some true life characters living in them. The story I'm going to share today is not fiction, but it could become the best part of a Christmas story of the future.
IT IS A TRUE HAPPENING OF THIS PAST WEEK.
Husband and I were placing our purchases on the check-out counter at Walmarts. when I noticed that the woman ahead of us had five or six pairs of sneakers, and clothing, all different and all various sizes. I thought to myself, she must have a large family.
There was a gentleman checking out in front of her and when he left there was an exchange of words with the clerk which I could not hear. When the woman's purchases were bagged and she was leaving the counter, I heard her say as she turned back to the aisles of the store, "I'm going back and get more".
I was puzzled until it was our turn and the clerk told us that the man who checked- out ahead of the woman heard her tell the clerk that her order was to be donated, and he paid for them!
The clerk added "It is the first time in all the eight years of working at Walmarts, that this has happened on my watch."
It was a heart-warming happening which deserves blessings for the gentleman with the true Christmas spirit.
And maybe a scene in a future story. . .
Merry Christmas, everyone.
