Message from a Stranger – Made My Day

LetItGo Miracle Moments 10 Comments

Sometimes bumping into someone can a powerful gift. One day, not too long after Christmas, I headed to a local mall to make a return. A perfect parking spot opened up.

As I was crossing the parking lot, a man using wooden crutches was facing me and our paths were starting to pass each other. I couldn’t help but ask, in an upbeat way, “Hey, how are you doing?” He stopped right there and looked at me and said, “I am really fine, thank you….Do you live on the beach?” A bit surprised, I said, “Why, yes I actually do!” He said, “You look like you live on the beach. Keep doing what you are doing and wearing what you are wearing because you being you affects people. Keep being you! You made my day today, thank you!”

“Oh my gosh, that touched my heart. Thank you,” I replied. He said he was not from around there and had not been out for a long time. He thanked me again for “me being me”. I walked into the store and felt really uplifted and moved, unable to shake the conversation that had just transpired. I drove home thinking about the man with the crutches and how very personal his message was to me.
