The Man at the Market
When the supermarket clerk tallied up my groceries, I was $12 over what I had on me. I began to remove items from the bags, when another shopper handed me a $20 bill. “Please don’t put yourself out,” I told him.
“Let me tell you a story,” he said. “My mother is in the hospital with cancer. I visit her every day and bring her flowers. I went this morning, and she got mad at me for spending my money on more flowers. She demanded that I do something else with that money. So, here, please accept this. It is my mother’s flowers.”

Act of Kindness
For the gentleman in the bow tie who paid for my groceries Nov. 18 at Aldi on Roue 8.
You touched my heart with your random act of kindness. No one has ever done anything like this for me.
I so enjoyed talking with you while we waited our turn at the checkout. Hopefully your son won his soccer match.
To show my gratitude, I will pay it forward with my own random act of kindness before Christmas.
Consider yourself hugged.

Below a man was on his way to an Oregon Ducks game. He popped into the store to buy a watermelon. A kind woman offered to let him go first. So, he paid for her groceries. A $55 watermelon. It’s all good.
He is a principal at a high school and says, “an act of kindness can be words of encouragement. It doesn’t have to be money related. You can hold a door. You can pick something up, which someone has dropped.”
This one is in Little Elm, TX from Channel 8 News. A server stopped to console a crying women. Little did he know that gesture would result in a $500 tip!
A 32 year old North Texas man makes impressions everywhere he goes. Casey was at a Kroger store and noticed a woman who looked like she was having a bad day. He walked up to her, asked her if he could help saying, “anything I can do to make someone smile.” He paid for her groceries. He told her she was beautiful.
Then he walked away.
The rest is below as a family came to his place of employment, bought a 37 cent water and left a $500 tip. Watch.
