A feel good story!

post #1 of 10

God works in mysterious ways..just when you think no one is listening..

A customer at work today caught me as I was coming back on break, she said Merry Christmas and handed me an envelope. I just opened it now, she gave me $40(!!!) and a note telling me how inspirational my story is, that I "weighed heavily on her heart," and that I'm going to be an amazing mom. 

I wish I knew her name and I hope I see her again. People like her; give me hope. Even if it didn't contain money - still the fact that someone who is such a 'stranger' to me sees everything I'm trying to accomplish for myself and my child..feels good. I cried.

I can't believe this type of thing happened to me..really. I mean I made that much of an impression on someone in such a short amount of time?

I think my feeling of guilt comes from not knowing her name or being able to recognize her. I really thought when she handed me the envelope it wasn't for me..that she had the wrong person. 

I'm really just blown away. These things don't happen to me!

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. :)  You set a good example for young women everywhere!

You're such a really wonderful woman, Kaitlyn...and she sees what the rest of us do.

You definitely deserve it!  If only I had 1/2 the wisdom and drive that you have when I was 21....you should be proud and know that baby is going to have one amazing mama!

 Awe thanks mamas! I'm in tears (: As usual..not hard to do these days (lol). She came at such a perfect time..what an angel she is. I'm still totally in shock. Something so selfless. I can't get the right words down in text, I just know how I feel. She didn't see a poor struggling single mother she saw someone who is trying so hard to do the right thing. She gives me hope, in so many ways - but mostly in humanity.

Could not have happened to a more deserving person: and yes I can say that without having even MET you in person... you come across as such a strong, caring person it is no wonder you made an impression on this woman :)

It really is incredible..I think about it all the time now. And it makes me giggle when I tell people the story because everyone says "I've never bought that much at the store to have such an extensive conversation with someone" lmbo. I have customers (mainly customers with HUGE orders) seek me out. Apparently my pleasantness and sense of humor keeps them coming back. lol!
