Today was a wonderful day. I got up late feeling rested which is a great start. I went to my medical appointment which finished relatively quick, less than 30 minutes. Not to far from the grocery store I decided to pick up a few things. 

In the grocery store I shopped mindfully cogniscent that I had no help. My intention was to pick a little-1 bag. I thought I'd done admirably well until I began to pack my recycle bag. I was wrong. Stretched before me were a couple if bags worth of groceries sitting on the conveyer belt. I found one plastic bag in my shoulder bag and the cashier gifted me with other.

Outside I called home, my daughter didn't pick up so I text her to meet me by our bus stop because I needed help. On my way to the bus stop with the groceries bags in the cart I stopped an Afro-Caribbean woman on her way to the grocery and ask her to follow me and she can have my cart. She did and we chatted. She ask how I was going to manage and I told her my daughter would meet me on the other side. I hoped.

As we parted ways and I lifted my bags took two steps and my heaviest bag broke. I gasped and looked at it on the ground. It stood with one handle torn off. I could not left from the bottom up because of my injured left hand. The Afro-Caribbean woman came back. She stopped me from attempting to move the heavy bag, asked me where I lived and offered me a ride home. She did not allow me to do anything. She took the other bags from me and told me to sit in her car. I acquiesced and sat in the car. She loaded my bags and sat in the drivers seat. As she drove I asked her name (Megan). She dropped me at my home and forbid me to touch the bags as I called my daughter. 

My daughter appeared at the door with our grocery buggy. I was surprised and hanged up. I introduced her to Megan and together they loaded our buggy. She thanked Megan for helping me. 

I thanked Megan for her kindness and gave her the biggest hug.  She was a delight, beautiful and kind. My heart was full.

It is wonderful to be the recipient of kindness.
