On Dec. 14 I went to a local grocery store for some items. I decided if I had enough points, I would use them to buy a ham for the freezer. Using points reduces the price a lot. I told the nice young man checking my groceries I’d take the ham if I had enough points. He checked and found I didn’t have enough points. (The sale is on until Dec. 26.) I said, “That’s fine, I’ll stop by next week.” I live very close to the store. After I paid my bill, the young checker found I now had enough points. I said, “I’ll use the points and get the ham.” He was going to have to get someone to help so I said I’d come back next week. (Didn’t want to hold the line up.)
As I was loading my groceries, the checker said, “He paid for your ham.” This was a young man behind me in line. I was so surprised! I thanked him and asked him to please let me pay him for the ham. He replied, “Merry Christmas.”
As I was loading my groceries in the car, he came and asked if I needed help. I said, “No thanks, but please let me pay you for the ham.” Again he replied, “Merry Christmas” as he was leaving.
I just wish I would have gotten his name. My husband and I would love to have him for ham dinner. God bless him.
We’re about to celebrate the greatest gift of all, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross in order for us to be born without sin.
“Merry Christmas” to you and and Happy New Year (stay safe!)
