Walmart Surprise!

At Walmart the other day
with 7 children,
and a HUGE grocery list...
we moved aisle to aisle 
with my train of shoppers and 
two shopping carts.

Some children were having a harder time 
then usual with the whole shopping adventure 
I asked Conner,
"Could you sit with the kids at McD's (in the store)
while I shop?"
(Conner's cart was already full)
He was more then willing to help in this way.
We ordered their lunch and got them settled 
and I went off with my cart to finish...

as I walked to my cart -
a gentleman, 
reached over a table to me 
and handed me a greeting card. 
He said,
"I bought this for you."

I admit I was a bit confused,
I smiled and said thank you. 
He said, "Bless you." and walked away.

This is the card he gave me.

You are a gift to others
Some have a gift
for helping 
others to see
the world as a place 
of possibility...

Some have a gift 
for helping 
others to see
the world as a place
of possibility...

Some impart wisdom
or comfort and care.
Some point out the path,
and some
take you there.

Some warm the heart 
with a human touch.
You have all these gifts...

Thank you so much.

and he personally wrote:

To: One of God's special angels on earth

Sometimes God uses angels to give us a glimpse of 
heaven.  I've had my glimpse through his angel today. 
God bless you.

What an encouragement he was to me that day.
It wasn't one of our finest days,
but God used a stranger to encourage me,
and reminded me 
to encourage others,
even if they are having a "not so great day".
