When Magic Finds Us

We just don’t know when magic will find us. Or where… On Saturday I ran into the grocery store for a produce run. I eat alot of green veggies. 🙂

With ease and pleasure I sailed around picking out organic and fresh items, loaded my cart and headed for check out. Sometimes I use self check out stations but with so much produce it is easier using a store cashier.

I regarded the lines of people waiting and got in what looked to be the quickest queue: a man and his toddler.

Waiting, I admired how fast the scanning system operates these days. He had a big order but in no time all the groceries were through.

The attendant asked the fellow if he had a courtesy card for this store. He indicated no.

Sometimes when I hear that the person before me has no card, I volunteer mine. This time before I could do that the attendant looked at me and asked if I had one.

” Oh sure,” said I, waking up to the situation. Holding out my card the machine beeped, the screen rolled and new numbers appeared in view.

I chirped, ” Well I’ll get lower gas prices.” ( This store offers reduction in gas when a customer reaches $100 threshold, one I rarely reach because I only buy produce there.)

The cashier said,  “He saved $30.”

“Wow,” I cried, “I had no idea it would be that much.”

The customer looked me in the eye. He said, “Thank you. that’s a  Christmas gift”.

I beamed. Who knew I’d have a magical moment popping in to get provisions?? I enjoyed a spike in happiness 🙂
