How I met Angels in a Supermarket
Ann Gover, Cape Town – I recently had a wonderful experience I would like to share.
I went shopping on Christmas Eve at a busy supermarket in Parklands, Cape Town. I found a queue with just one lady and her daughter of about five ahead of me. She said to go ahead of her as she wasn’t in a hurry. Thanking her, I did.
When all my groceries were rung up, I took out my purse to pay, when the lady moved me aside and said, no, she was going to pay for me as a Christmas gift. She explained that her daughter had said I looked like her gran.
I was flabbergasted as the groceries came to a few hundred rands, but she insisted.
I was overcome with tears. I
didn’t know her at all. I thanked her profusely and went to my car.
While loading the boot, the same woman came over and said her daughter wanted to know my name. I told her it’s Ann. Imagine the surprise when she said her daughter’s name is Reanne, her mother is Ann, and she was Carrol Ann. Now it was my turn to be surprised, because my name is Ann Carrol.
I will never forget that wonderful gesture. Thank you again Carrol Ann; God will truly bless you and your family for making a senior citizen’s day that much more special.
There are angels on earth!
