  1. That was really a wonderful gesture on the lady’s part. Such kindness does light up our days and I feel sorry for that man who had so much on his mind and was hoping for some respite from you.

    • Thanks Rachna, he even took my number and asked if he could call me with his problems. I couldn’t say no to him but wish he could talk to a qualified professional, hope he doesn’t need to call, ever.

  2. Your gesture of listening to the cashier was enough for him for the moment. It’s very liberating to share our burdens with a stranger knowing that we won’t be judged. Well done, Sulekha. I’m sure you will help the person lead a better life.

  3. So much goodness in the world 🙂 This really made me smile. So nice of the lady to have helped you and how wonderful of you to have listened to the guy. I hope he felt a little less burdened.

  4. Beautiful.. acts of kindness such as these make us look at the more positive things in life. Yup we all need to rest our heads on our pillows with lesser regrets

  5. Such little impromptu conversations – like the one you had with the other customer and then with the cashier are nicely indicative of the power of connection if we stay open to the goodness of people. A feel-good post, Sulekha. I liked it very much.

  6. What a sweet and heart-warming incident, Sulekha! I do what that lady did very often, because somehow, each time I visit the supermarket, there are invariably women managing young kids in the queue. I would love to see your bracelet! Hugs and thank you so much for joining the Gratitude Circle bloghop. Hope to see you there again – linky will be live on June 30! 🙂

    • Vidya, it was my pleasure. That lady belonged to your clan 🙂 I too do the same for young mothers and senior citizens. I love wearing my crystals, will share a picture 🙂 Thanks a ton.

    Such a warm post Sulekha… And seeing such acts of kindness from strangers sure makes our day, doesn’t it?
    Keeping a gratitude journal sure keeps us free from stress and help us remember the good things that happen in our life..

    May you have a wonderful July 🙂

    Cheers
