To The Mother At The Supermarket--I See Myself In You
--by kiwicat, posted Feb 26, 2017
She clearly couldn't find any more money in her purse so asked for a few items to be taken out. First it was the box of plums and secondly it was body wash. She only had a few essential items in the trolley anyway.
I stepped up (and wondered how well my 'help' would be received) and offered to pay the difference. The mother said "no thanks, I'm okay" and I said "I've been in that situation before, and more than likely will be again, please let me get the plums for your beautiful daughters and the body wash too" she said "really?" it was only $7 for me.
We saw them again in the carpark, and both kids were eating apples, and weren't crying anymore. It made my heart sad, perhaps they were crying before because they were hungry.
Even though times are a bit challenging at the moment, it really made me feel even more grateful for everything we have.
But u did it. You judged her stopped to helpher. U could see smiles on those kids face.
