Yes--there are many wonders to behold

Yesterday while at work at the jewelry store the most wonderful thing happened. A young man in his late 20's was in shopping for a engagement ring. His finances were an issue and as he narrowed his choices down to 3 rings he kept relaying stories of his love for his girlfriend and her likes and dislikes. Another one of our very good customers who was near by shopping overheard some of his conversations and was overcome with joy and love for this young man. Come to find out he had stirred memories of her grandson, who had died in a car accident, 10 years earlier and would've been around the same age. She wrote a check for $1000 dollars, to us ,to be given to him anonymously. I wish you all could have been there when we showed him the check and told him the story. He teared up, as we all did and asked if he could thank her. She was gone...

Tis the season!

OMG, I just teared up too. That is amazing. The randomness of it all is especially poignant.

Wow, what a beautiful story, too bad the woman didn't stay around so he could thank her! If only more people could be like this! I too teared up just reading it!
