Helping Hands

The other day I was walking out of macey's grocery store and the lady in front of me had a employee helping her push her cart and the cart hit a bump and a box of about 25 or so limes tipped over and started rolling everywhere. I held on to my cart and started picking up as many as I could with one hand or my cart would hit the same bump. Then as I was picking the limes up I looked around and people were rushing over to help. People walking out of the store and into the store. Mom's with little kids were helping and single people. I just had a really good feeling then and thought that it's nice to have helping hands to be there when we need it. I think that made my day to be a part of those helping hands. It would be nice if everyday was like that, then maybe the world would be a better place.

That is awesome! Helping hands are often just the angels in the outfield! Thanks for sharing.

Very cool... and the limes just made me crave a Diet coke with lime from Sonic. :)

I have been on both ends the recieving end of helping hands and the one giving help. Each time it feels really good to know that someone (even strangers) realize you are important enough to stop and help out.

And now thanks to Amy, I am wanting a Sonic diet coke too, but with perhaps... vanilla instead of lime... well maybe lemon... oh the choices! It's too much for me, I better just stay home!
