The Nice Lady and the Strawberries

So the other day at Aldi I had a nice little experience that helped me regain faith in people. We were walking past the strawberries on the shelf and Ollie spots them from the shopping cart and starts yelling "Strawberry!" at the top of his little lungs. I didn't want to get them because they were a little bit sad looking and a bit over priced that week. But I gave in and set them in the cart to get him to stop yelling. A few of the people around were giggling at Ollie. By the time we got to the checkout line I had thought the wiser of purchasing the strawberries and I ditched them at the last minute. Well, some sweet lady had seen Ollie's excitement over the berries and must've also seen me ditch them. She gave the cashier the money for the container of strawberries and said, "I just had to get those for a fellow strawberry lover!"
Talk about going out of your way to show love.

What a great story. And your kids' quotes on the right crack me up!
