Today has been a surprising and wonderful day. After leaving the gym I went to S&S Cafeteria to pick up some food. As always, especially on Sundays, the line was long. I placed my order and sat down to wait. Eventually, I was able to get to the cashier. When I got there she said, “Your meal has already been paid for”. I thought there must be a mistake so I told her that she must have the wrong person. She pointed and said, “Your meal has been paid for by Mrs. Smith”. I looked toward where she was pointing and saw a lady I didn’t know. I walked over, introduced myself and thanked her. Mrs. Ceretta Smith said that God told her to do it, adding that her grandparents were gone. She said, “The cashier wasn’t supposed to tell you who paid for the meal”.

As I said earlier, today was a good day—not just for the meal but for the idea that someone would think enough of me to do that. Thank you, Mrs. Smith. It was wonderful meeting you. Be blessed.
