Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Angels At The Hy-Vee Grocery Store

I want to share a story that happened on the 23rd of November. The day before Thanksgiving. I received word that my good friend had passed away that morning. I had to go pick up a cake for my Thanksgiving dinner.

But my friend's parents (also good friends of mine) were heavy on my heart. I went to pick out a flower for them at the Hy-Vee grocery store that I had ordered my cake from. I had picked out some flowers but it really did not seem like the ones I wanted.

A young lady, Liz, came over and asked if I needed help. She asked if they were for my table. I told her about my friend and wanting to get flowers for her parents. Then of course I started crying. She was so kind and came around and gave me a hug. She helped me pick out a pretty flower and container and she put cat tails and a raffa bow on it. It was very pretty. She rang me out also so I wouldn't have to go through the long line,

When she came to the cake she said it looked delicious. So I had to talk her into making my heart happy by her and her friend working with her to eat a small piece of cake. They got me a knife and I cut them 2 pieces and gave them to them and of course a smile card. :) Thanks to Liz and the other angel in the flower shop at Hy-vee! :)
