I was thinking of my RAK as I was in the grocery today.
I've talked here on my blog a few time about my love-hate
relationship with the checkout baggers and how they seem to love
squishing your fragile items with heavy cans and jars. haha.
I usually just kindly say things like, "Here, lets not put that
heavy bag of potatoes on top of the bread", ..things like that.
Today there were two girls bagging my items and they had a second
cart between me and them, so I couldn't get close enough to
supervise! And no, I don't think it was on purpose. haha...
They were new and didn't know me!
One of them offered to push my cart out to the parking lot for me
and even though I usually decline this kind of help, I thought I'd
go ahead and let her do it so I could give her a tip for her efforts.
She even loaded most of the bags into my jeep so I surprised
her with $10 and said thank you so much for helping.
She was shocked and her big smile was my reward. :)
I had to laugh though as I was driving home and hit the
brakes fairly hard when someone pulled out in front of me.
One of the shopping bags behind me flung against my seat
and an entire bunch of grapes flew into the front seat and
landed on the gear shift beside me. Goodness! At least
they had been placed on the top of the bag and didn't have the
potatoes squishing them. :)

It's lots of fun and as you do a random act of kindness,
you'll discover that the blessing is actually yours to receive.
