My faith in the goodness of humans has been restored.
As I’ve mentioned a time or two (or eighty or a thousand), my knees become very painful when I stand for more than a few minutes. Last week I had to go to pick up a packet at the post office. I stood in line as long as I could, then found a little corner shelf where I could sit down. I was hurting so much I didn’t think I could even make it back to my vehicle and leave at that point.
A lady came in and got in line. A couple of minutes later, she asked me if I had been in line. I told her my knees were a problem. She said when she reached the counter, I could go ahead of her – so that’s what happened.
My pain still existed, but my heart was lightened and my smile grew, thanks to a beautiful, kind lady.
