A couple of weeks ago, I was in line at Hannaford on Whitten Road in Augusta and was having a great deal of difficulty with my credit card company approving my more than $165 grocery bill.

I believe the lady that was checking out behind me felt such great compassion for me that she paid for the groceries. I tried to get information from the grocery store associate to find out who she was and how I could contact her, but the clerk was unable to provide any. The clerk said the woman just paid my bill and left.

To the very generous and kind lady, thank you.

Even though I do not know you or how I could personally thank you, God knows you and He will bless you for your beautiful act of kindness as you paid it forward.

My four grandchildrem, ages 16, 14, 11 and 9, thank you most of all — they’ll get more of grandma’s home cooking. Blessings to you.
