The Thankful Thursday Blog Hop is hosted by Brian from Brian’s Home. He encourages us to say what we are thankful for today.
Today I’m thankful for the friendly people that were at the supermarket today.
I was grocery shopping this afternoon. In the produce aisle a man asked me to hand him a pack of chicory. He was sitting in a wheelchair and couldn’t reach it. I said: “Sure. Do you want a pack with three or four?” He answered it didn’t matter, but I took a close look and made sure he got good quality chicory. He thanked me, and we went our seperate ways.
I decided to keep an eye on him from a distance, in case he needed more help. But after a short while I realised I wasn’t needed anymore. Everybody the man in the wheelchair asked for help did as he was asked, and everybody responded in such a friendly and compassionate manner.
It made me happy to watch this. These days I see so much tension and dispute – sometimes even hate. But today I saw so many people who were willing to help a stranger in need. It warmed my heart.
Sometimes it’s about the little things, and all I needed to do today was reach out and hand somebody a pack of chicory. I hope this lesson will stay with me.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
