I was out doing my once a month shopping and walking up and down the aisles of my favorite, local health food store. Out of nowhere comes this tall, cheery man stopping in front of me to say, “I hope you’re having a wonderful day!”
He said it very loud and as if he truly wanted me to have a great day. I could feel the warmth covering my face going down through my heart and extending throughout my body from the genuine love I sensed from this stranger.
“Thank you! I hope you are enjoying your day too,” I said.
He shot back, “Every day I am alive and see people like you I have a great day!” He moved on and said something to another shopper.
I stopped a grocery worker and mentioned the man and his wonderful cheer for the season. The worker said, “Oh, he comes in here several times a week. He must live nearby. He’s like that every time he comes in, all year long. He’s a very happy man.”
Some people might think this man is crazy.
I know better. I saw an angel today.
