      Just wanted to share the most amazing thing that happened today. Took our kid shopping for his dad's Crimble present, which he bought with his allowance. While waiting our turn, he spotted a video game that he had been wanting for quite some time & it was on sale for a really good price & he had enough money to get his dad's Crimble gift and the video game. When our turn finally came, just as he was paying for it, the cashier reached in back of the drawer & handed our kid a $10 bill & said: "Someone in the line in front of you gave this to me & told me to give it to you to use towards your purchases. Looks like you have a Secret Santa. Merry Christmas!" Our kid thanked the cashier & wished him a Merry Christmas. Then he took one look at my face & said: "Mom, don't you dare cry in the store! If you cry, I'll go wait for you outside!" There were 5 people in line ahead of us, so there was no way I could even get an idea of who this wonderful person might have been.

      When I got home & said to my husband: "You'll never believe what happened to me!", he replied: "Do I have to go & kick somebody's ass?!" (I've had jerks hit on me, even in the presence of out kid.) I told him no & when I told him what had taken place, he said he had chills going up & down his spine. We're usually the ones who are generous with others & this isn't something that happens to us.

        You just made my day... I LOVE hearing that stuff!

                        Love this move too, one of the greatest ever. James Stewart is brilliant.

                        And yes, nice story.

                          Does "cow bell" count?

                          "MORE COW BELL!!"

                            I wish we knew who this wonderful person was, so we could thank them personally.

                              Nice story .... glad it happened at random ..... I am guessing the way to thank this wonderful person is to pay it forward ...... maybe not this minute of course ..... in some random act of kindness .... (for someone else) ...

                                You mentioned that you and yours have at times been like this yourselves!

                                It's angels helping angels!

                                We have all been helped by angels in our lives...and have also at times...been helpful angels!

                                  Hey, It's a Wonderful Life is my fav movie ever. But I don't see the connection.

                                    it's funny, 'cos that day, we had 3 big bags of new toys, books, crayons & other things kids would enjoy to take to the annual Toys for Tots Drive at my husband's Masonic Lodge.

                                      They are calling the person in the story an angel, figuratively.

                                        yes, I know that, but I don't see the connection of the behaviour of that person and being an angel... more like being Santa Claus.

                                          The word angel literally means...messenger...and within the context of the stories...someone is acting like a messenger of love and goodness.

                                            To me, that kind hearted stranger is an angel. People like that are rare.
