Tim, The Stranger

My husband and I had a rough first week of 2016. At the end of the week, “Tim” entered. I went to pick up our usual Friday night date food. There was a gentleman waiting in line and an elderly couple ahead of him. Once they were done ordering he politely said I could go I front of him. I accepted and thanked him for that. After I placed my order he quietly said, “I’ve got this.” At first, I wasn’t sure what was going on and then he ordered his food with mine and paid for my dinner! I was shocked and speechless. Choking back tears I asked him why he did that. He replied: “Why not?” I asked him his name and he shrugged and said “Tim.” Then I told him my husband and I had paid for someone’s groceries over the holidays and he said “That’s why, and that’s how we are supposed to be with each other.” I went back to my car and cried because it was such a rough week! My uncle died. Work was unusually rough. My husband and I were exhausted. “Tim” made me smile and have faith in people who are just happy to do something nice for someone without any motives at all. I thanked him and gave him the biggest hug and told him he was amazing! Good people exist and God exists in them!
