the same total stranger has made me cry twice in the last 24 hours....
About three hours later this guy comes in and asked if I had been there all evening and if I was the only young lady working. I said yes, I was. He got all teary eyed and said " My mom was in a few hours ago. She got a couple papers with my dads obit in them..she said you.paid for them for her." I said I had and he thanked me and said " It might not have seemed a big deal to you, but it was a huge gesture to my mother" I spent the
rest of the evening sniffling.
Well, my boss just called me. A man had called and told her he just wanted her to know what exceptional, wonderful employees she had and told her what I did. She was very proud of me. I was kinda surprised he took the time to call - after all he had come and thanked me...It made me realize just how big a deal it had been to them and here I am sniffling again.. I feel so grateful that I was able to shine even a small light into someone elses dark moment.
