Day 11

Today I met Mary. She introduced herself at the farmers market. She heard me asking for the price of some peaches for my daughter I couldn't afford. She gave me one. Out of the blue. She accepted some payment for it after I pressed the issue, but not its full worth. She tried to walk away afterward, but I stopped her and looked her in the eyes and said, "thank you so much for your kindness." I know it wasn't much, but her heart was truly generous. I hope I can be more actively giving to strangers. Thank you, Mary. You made my day.
