To My Wonder Woman; Thanks for the Good Deed

I was the recent recipient of a very kind act while food shopping the other day with my 3 girls!!  I wanted to THANK this unknown person.  However, I was not sure how.  So, I decided to send it to the “Letters to the Editor” at my local Sun Newspaper.

Today, it was published and I do hope our Wonder Woman sees it. Thanks again!!

Heartfelt Thanks to Wonder Woman

Editor:

Good deeds, they are always welcomed!

In the past, I was the one normally handing them out. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my situation drastically changed. Living with bipolar disorder, I still volunteered my time and efforts to help others with mental illness. But gone are the days I could financially help anyone else out.

I’m a father of four and we live on a tight budget. I’m a very frugal shopper, using coupons and waiting for the deals. This month, I overreached our budget. Although it was not until I was checking out at Publix at 4265 Tamiami Trail with my three girls, I found out I only had $4.42 left in my account. I was puzzled and frazzled, thinking how can this happen?

Time seemed to pass so slowly while I was thinking what to do. I had to put some items back, but everything I got we needed.

Then almost like a superhero, a lady behind stepped forward and spoke, “No, you don’t have to put any thing back. This is on me.” And with a quick swipe of her credit card she paid our $39.11 grocery balance. I was a little shocked, mustered up my voice to ask, “are you sure?” Yes, she said, and it was done.

My girls and I would like to publicly thank our “Wonder Woman” for her very generous deed.

Thank you!
