Today’s Chicken Soup for the Soul Friday is by a young woman. Enjoy!
“I was walking through the lanes of a grocery store, dishing items from the shelves. Doing my grocery shopping for the week. Sometimes, I’d walk out with a heavy load of groceries, but no one would bother to ask me for help.
It’s not a big deal, it would just take longer for me to lug the groceries across the parking lot. But today, I stood on my tip toes trying to reach for a can of sauce, when an elderly man asked me for help.
It was a simple gesture, but going through the hectic days, driving through traffic, people honking if you take longer than a second and deadlines looming at work, this was a whiff of fresh air.
It’s like people have no patience anymore! But this man, he made me smile. And he did help me get that can of sauce that was out of my reach!”
