While I was deciding what kind of bread to buy at Trader Joe's a young man who works there asked me how I was doing.
As usual, I told the truth.
He said, "I'll be right back."
I figured he was another one who thought I talk too much, or go on too much, and had politely excused himself. It was crazy busy in there.
I was heading to the checkout when he came back and handed me a beautiful bouquet of flowers! He said, "Have a Happy New Year," gave me a hug and left.
I will never give up on seeing good in people and I will never change who I am in order to make people like me.
The kindness of this young man, a complete stranger, moved me to tears. It had been an exceptionally difficult day. My heart was hurt and an angel on earth gifted me with kindness. My healing begins.
