    Yesterday he man behind me in the checkout line had only one item. I told him to go in front of me. He looked shocked that I said this. He thanked me, paid, and left. When I stepped up to begin checking out the checker said that the man who I let in front of me wanted to help pay for my groceries. He left his change, $14.30! Needless to say I was shocked. Since he had left I couldn't thank him. What a wonderful gesture to receive.

    I love those small acts of kindness, particularly at Christmas!

    You helped him so he helped you! It's always refreshing to hear a story where two propel were being generous and thoughtful to others
