Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Karma for Me

--by kimyouravonlady, posted Nov 28, 2006
I was in line at the grocery store yesterday and the lady in front of me was purchasing her items and buying a treat for her grand-daughter - a bag of mini M&M's.

My 3-year-old daughter started clamoring for the same thing. I only had a little bit of money with me as payday wasn't until hubby came home that night, and I tried to tell her that we couldn't get it this time, that mommy didn't have enough money.

She was fussy about it but I finally calmed her down.

Then as I started to ring up my purchases, the cashier passes me a bag of M&M's. I asked her what this was about. She said the lady in front of me bought it for my daugher while I was trying to calm her down. I didn't notice and I didn't even get to thank her because she had left while I wasn't looking.

If you're somewhere reading on this board - I say Thank You! My daughter smiled all the way home!!

Since I now had one of the smile cards, I thought I better come to this site and see what it was all about.

What a great concept by the way!!

That's my story - not the grandest thing I suppose but it made my day a whole lot brighter that's for sure.

Thanks again!

I ran over to the atm next to the checkout to see exactly what i did have. I was broke! I went back to the checkout to start putting things back and the cashier told me that it was okay. The man behind me had paid the 20. 00. I couldn't believe it. I was definitely humbled.
