Overhearing a phone conversation at Starbucks

While we both waited her phone rang. She started apologizing to the person on the line, "I'm truly sorry, I lost my job a few months back and I could barely pay tuition. But I promise you as soon as I can I'll buy the girls their books. Please just give me time."
I wanted to hug her right there and then. My birthday was the day before and I am obsessed with books. I got many bookstore gift cards. I knew why God put me there today. I thought of my mom and what she would say to me "come on you know what to do."
I gave her $60 dollars worth in gift cards. I did hug her and told her she was in my prayers. Thank God for putting her in my path. I hope my friends who gave me the gift cards won't get mad. Those gift cards are helping someone in need. So thank you, you helped someone today.
