Visions of Cheeseburgers

We pulled over and I jumped out to give her a few bucks and received a smile and a tentative "thank you ma'am" for my humble donation. But as we drove away, I looked down at the bag by my feet holding a junior cheeseburger in it; a surprise for our much spoiled big mutt awaiting us at home. " A burger for my dog," I thought, and sighed.
Seemingly at the same time, my partner made a u turn and said, "we have to go back. We have to buy her lunch!" Back to Wendy's we went and ordered 2 cheeseburgers, a large order of fries and a lemonade and headed back to the exit once again.
As soon as she saw our jeep I knew that she remembered us (the huge dent in the front bumper might have been a give away). I got out of the car and handed her the bag and she breathed in the aroma of it , long and deep and then looked up at me with a smile that could have lit up the Universe. "Thank you Ma'am! Oh thank you so much Ma'am! And how did you know lemonade is my favorite? I'm going over to my spot right now to eat this. Thank you! Bless you!"
A quick hug shared between us, a smile shared as well as a "don't ever give up" mantra and off she went to sit under a nearby tree to enjoy her lunch. And I still smiling, hopped back into my jeep feeling blessed indeed. How often do we get the chance to fulfill someone's vision? Well today, I did.
