I hope you had a chance to do something random
and kind for another human being this week.
I'm excited to see who participates after quite a few
people said they were joining in!
On my weekly grocery trip this week I arrived as usual,
parked my Jeep and began walking through the parking lot
toward the store. An older man was walking very slowly
and stopped as I walked by. I thought maybe he was
checking his pockets like he forgot something and
went on past him. When I was getting my cart and about
to go into the store, there he was again, walking extremely
slow and then stopping. He looked like he
was trying to get to the mobile carts
that have the battery powered scooter attached.
He didn't look good and seemed almost in distress.
Half a dozen people walked past him but I thought I'd check
on him. I left my cart and went over to him and waited for him
to make eye contact.
"Are you ok?" I asked.
"Yes, I'm ok. I'm always like this."
"Are you sure? I'd be happy to help."
"I think I'll be alright, really."
I was thinking he looked like he was going to drop and
I was already planning in my mind to call for help and
start CPR. haha. My certificate has expired, but I'm
pretty sure I could remember what to do.
But he stayed upright and I made sure he got into
his scooter cart ok. He managed a smile and seemed
appreciative that anyone had noticed him at all.
He declined my offer to shop with him.
I didn't have any other plans that day and certainly
had the time. But he went on his way and thanked me.
No, I didn't take his picture. haha.
But I hope he felt like someone cared enough to stop and ask.
Today I spent some time in the kitchen.
I made this beautiful swirly fudge!
The recipe is on Chris' blog and you can
see it here.
I made it so The Mister, the boys and I could take it to our
respective places on Friday...work, day program and an auction.
I hope our friends and coworkers enjoy it!
It's always sweet to bring sweets, isn't it? ha.
The link will be open until Saturday evening!
And then we'll meet back here next week.
Same time, same station.
