The Kindness of Strangers

I worked all night and I was tired when I left, but I stopped and got groceries. When I got home, hubby and I brought the groceries in and put them away.

By this time I was starving, but I was too tired to fix anything. So we decided to go to Denny’s. We had their new Hobbit fare. It was good.

When we got ready to leave there was a long line at the checkout. A group of young people (definitely younger than me), was waiting to pay, but they told me to go ahead of them as I looked like I was going to work. (still in my uniform). I told them I had worked all night. One young woman asked where I worked and I told her at a nursing home. Then one of the young men asked to let him pay for our meal. Of course, I said No. But he kept insisting. An older gentleman with them, said to let him pay for it. The young woman took my bill and handed it to the young man. I thanked them profusely and they thanked me for what I do as a nurse.

I’m getting choked up just typing this. God bless them. He knows who they are.
