An Act Of Kindness Brings Tears
By Brenda FitzPatrick • August 2, 2013
Today I went to CardSmart on my lunch hour to mail a very large package (22 pounds) to my brother-in-law who has just been deployed to Afghanistan (third deployment in this war).
The young lady, Sara, finished weighing the package and told me the cost would be just under $45.
I pulled out my debit card and gave it to her. At that time, the gentleman behind me said, "Excuse me, did I hear you say that package is going to Afghanistan?"
I said, "Yes, it is for my brother-in-law."
He then told Sara that HE wanted to pay for the postage to mail that package.
I asked if he was sure and he said, "Absolutely, it is the least I can do."
I hugged this man and started to cry, as did Sara and anyone who saw what this man had just done. I could barely speak because of emotions and I knew that if I spoke anymore I would be a blubbering fool.
I left the store without ever getting this gentleman’s name. I pray he reads this and realizes how much he touched my heart with this act of kindness.
I have emailed my brother-in-law in Afghanistan to let him know what happened and that people really are thinking about them and appreciating all they do. I pray goodness comes to this man ten-fold.
