It was a very dreary, wet, last day of May. I had just gone into the Safeway at Cavalier Drive and Portage Avenue after having had a very stressful experience in the parking lot.
To add to my stress level, I struggled with getting a grocery cart. A couple of quarters later and the help of a stranger, my luck was starting to change.
I was in a hurry and was walking across the front of the store when I was stopped by a little girl and her grandmother. The little one gave me a yellow rose and told me she hoped it would make my day a little sunnier.
It was the sweetest thing to happen to me, and the sun shone for me the rest of the day.
Thank you, little sunshine!
