Awesome sauce
 
I intended to have a 9.11 social media “day of silence” for myself but after I talked to my mom this morning and she told me about what happened yesterday (when she and my dad were standing in line at the grocery store) and...

The woman ahead of them went to pay for her groceries with a debit card but it came back that her account was empty. Now, while that has happened to plenty of us (at some point in our lives), at least, in my case, I knew it was empty. This woman was shocked! 

We don't know why it was empty but there are a number of reasons I could imagine and I'm sure she's dealing with (at least) one of those reasons today. However, I think we all need to hear what happened next.

This woman started sobbing. Broken, hopeless, hurting tears. The kind that said, “This is too much and I'm at the end of my rope. I'm desperate, I need help and I need it now.”

Have you ever heard that sort of crying before? I have, and your heart breaks for the person crying those kinds of tears—and it should.

So my dad looks at my mom and gets the nod (of agreement he's looking for) and, quietly, follows the woman over to the customer service counter and once there asks, “How much were they?”

The woman answers (through her tears) “A lot.” And it turned out to be over $200.

There was another woman standing there with my parents and, together, they all decide that they would split her bill so that she could have her groceries.

That's a beautiful part to this (otherwise) sad story but guess what? It gets even better because the store manager looked at all of them and said, “No, it's okay, we're going to absorb this.” And had someone take the groceries to her car.

Now, I don't know if the store has a policy for that sort of thing or if this manager made the call on his own or even if he paid for it out of his own pocket but I will tell you this—I will be driving to that store to buy my groceries from now on. ;)

Way more important than that...

Is that someone (when they needed it most) was lifted up by others. I wouldn't be so bold as to tell you how to feel, think or react to hearing this story—I only offer it—on a day that was going to be a silent one for me.

One last thing...I wish that we all know peace, love, kindness, forgiveness, compassion and (should we ever find we need it) to be lifted up by others.

Thanks for listening. :)
