To the man today who paid for my groceries,
I don’t normally post these types of things here, but I gave you my business card with this website on it and perhaps you’ll see this. I hope you do.
Tonight I was remarking on how wonderful love is. How being in love and seeing people in love, and loving others…well, how is that ever a bad thing? It’s not. Love is good. It is kind. It is lovely. I thought the world needed more of it. I’m still right about that.
But you, good sir, you gave me hope that the world is at least not lacking it. Being a struggling artist and a moron at times, my bank card was declined while in line at the grocery store. The bill was over $60. The clerk already packed my bags. The line behind us was building, people were impatient.
You were only buying eggnog, yet you volunteered to cover it. The whole bill. It made your eggnog cost $72.
I certainly didn’t deserve it. You didn’t know me and you didn’t ask for anything in return, even when I insisted.
Love is all around. Indeed.
I hope only good things come to you. I have no doubt it will.
And I encourage everyone else to pay it forward to someone. I know I will be doing exactly that (donate that amount and more to the food bank). Do some good. Help someone in need, big or small. Let’s show some love to each other, to our fellow man. And keep that love going around and around.
Bless you <3
