Consider this a lesson for the rest of your life!
We may think that doing the right thing, just feels right to us, and most of the time, it may feel as if it isn’t that big of a deal. I know when I do it, it is because I hope it can make a difference to someone else, even if it may seem like a tiny thing. I have a feeling that someone did the right thing and then walked away without thinking twice about what they did.
First, less than an hour ago, that theory was proven true.
This is the post I put up on a Facebook group.
Last week I was shopping at Market Basket on Milton Road. My husband noticed one of my earrings was missing. I was heartbroken. I only shop once a week, so today I asked at the desk to see if anyone found it. Slim chance since it was a week ago. The clerk was shocked. She said someone just turned it in this morning, If you found it, I wanted you to know it felt like a miracle to me. I told the clerk you were a blessing. I told a couple of cashiers I know what happened and it made their day. So your good deed didn’t just end there. I bet there are some people on here feeling as if it made their day too. It may seem small to some people, but to others, it proves the goodness in humanity still lives! #sharethelove
In less than an hour, over 160 people were touched by the post. It is because when the stranger did something it changed my day. It also changed the day of the people I told at Market Basket when I was shopping. It changed the day for people reading this small post.
The thing is, this is how miracles happen. I don’t know who you are. You could have been in the store when I was doing the grocery shopping for the week in my Grinch mask because I have health problems. I have a feeling that’s how I lost the earring taking it off when I got out of the store last week. You could have been the nice lady joking with me.
You could have been in line at the registers when I was telling the cashier what you did, and another cashier heard it, as well as people in her line. You could have been walking behind me when I told another cashier I know and she was joyful.
What I can tell you is, you were in the car with me driving home. You were in my garage as I brought in the groceries. You were with me when I took a picture of the earring and posted it on Facebook. You were with me as I saw the count go up and up with people being touched by it. You are with me now as I write this post.
So if you think what you did was just a small thing,
It was huge for a lot of people!
