Shopping In The Rain
--by Aurelia, posted Jul 28, 2007
Today it was raining really hard. When I went to the grocery store, all of the Shopping Carts were dripping wet. I managed to find a paper towel and wipe it down and off I went to do my shopping.
I only picked up a few items and was on my way out of the store. As I walked out I noticed a Mom struggling as she came through the store doors with a baby in her arms. It was raining so hard outside she was running in. I quickly said she could use my cart as it was dry and she could put the baby in right away instead of looking for something to dry a cart off with. I just grabbed my bags of groceries out of the cart -- they were light -- and I ran off to my car without a cart. The mom was very grateful to me for helping her out.
I felt happy knowing I was able to offer her my shopping cart and was able to help her with her little baby.
Be on the look out for opportunities. They're everywhere, even when you're grocery shopping in the rain!
Thank You Very Much...!!! Keep It Up...!!!
Very kind of you to offer the cart. I had a situation in a grocery store with a cart with an older lady and offered an
act of kindness to her. You just never know how simple things as a shopping cart can bring a smile to some one and make their day.
