Take a look around and you’ll notice that people today are so busy in their lives that they hardly seem to have the time to indulge themselves, let alone others. Witnessing a simple act of caring and sharing is sure to raise a few eyebrows. This story of how a stranger at a frozen yogurt shop paid for another woman’s order is sure to warm your heart.
A person who works at a frozen yogurt shop came across a moment that she would forever cherish in life. She lives in a town where people “aren’t typically the friendliest.” But one day, a woman walked into the store and ordered a cup of large yogurt. The big treat cost around $15, and when she reached for her purse, she realized she’d forgotten it in her car.
While the woman informed the person at the counter that she would go and get it real quick, another lady who was eating with her kids walked up to the register and started looking into her purse. When the person at the counter asked if she needed any help, she replied, “yes, I’d like to pay for this woman’s yogurt.”
The person at the counter of the frozen yogurt shop shared this in a post with LoveWhatMatters. Completely taken aback by her act, the counter person was wondering what the lady’s motivation was, to which the lady replied: “just thought I’d do something nice for someone else.”
After she finished paying, the woman who had ordered the yogurt came back and learned of her kind act. She was left feeling so overwhelmed that she almost began to cry.
"Okay i have the cutest story to tell you all so I work at a frozen yogurt shop and the people in my town aren’t…
She then turned to the woman who paid for her treat and thanked her from the bottom of her heart. She also mentioned that “No one ever does anything nice for me and this really came at a great time.” And when they asked her the reason for her joy, she mentioned it was her birthday.
The store was next filled with the voices of everyone singing happy birthday to her. This definitely would end up being one of her most memorable birthdays ever.
Finally, the woman tells the lady who paid for her yogurt that she makes homemade jewelry, and as a “thank you,” she would make her a pair of earrings. The two women were so elated and everyone in the store was smiling. Realizing that moments like these don’t come too often, the counter person asked if she could capture a picture of the two. And you bet that’s just what she did!
This lovely incident just serves to remind us that there are many good people around, and humanity is still not lost.
You never know whose day you’re about to light up, so keep spreading the goodness by doing these precious little random of acts of kindness.
