Yesterday, I went to buy a new cell phone at the AT&T Wireless store in Corona Crossings. When it came time to pay, I realized that I had left my wallet at home. This was supposed to be a quick stop before taking my two oldest kids out for dinner. As I was putting my old cell phone back together and explaining to my kids that dinner would have to wait, the man next to me at the counter offered to let me (a complete stranger) borrow $200 so I could pay my bill and feed my hungry kids. I thanked him profusely, but told him that I would go back and get my wallet instead.
Although I didn’t “need” the help, I am thankful that there are people out there who are willing to help a complete stranger.
Thank you to the Good Samaritan I met yesterday.
