Gifted and Thankful

Strikingly beautiful
This gift
Out of the blue
In a Walmart parking lot
From a perfect stranger
With a wide smile saying
I want to pay it forward
Happy Thanksgiving--

More than touched by her kindness and generosity
Filled with gratitude

Renewing and reminding us for the second time in one day of the goodness of the human spirit

The first being the gift of a "Doo-wop" CD from Gus'  gracious and thoughtful physical therapist, having heard him sing to that same music in a previous session.

In these times of horrific violence, hate and fear mongering, these acts of kindness are extraordinarily sweet.
