A Twenty In His Hands
--by elaine, posted Aug 13, 2007
As we were standing at rack trying to decide what to get, I looked up an saw an elderly gentleman pick up a tomato and weigh it. He then began counting coins in his hand to see if he had enough.
My daughter and I both looked at each other. We understood and smiled. She said, "How much?" I said, "Um, about 20?" She agreed, so I pulled out a $20 bill, walked over put in the gentleman's hand and closed his fingers.
He looked at me astonished and speechless, as his eyes began to water.
I looked him and gently said, "Enjoy. And have a pie on us."
We picked up our shopping goodies, left the store with big smiles, and felt blessed to have run into that old man.
