Thank you to a stranger ...
Today around 16:50 today, 28th of March, 2013, a remarkable act of kindness happened to me. As I was waiting for one of my friends at the California Tortilla in the Maryland Rockville Town Center, I sat at a table with my yellow work folder before me. I'd been up since 1am and was very exhausted by this point. Dozing out of consciousness I propped my elbows on the table, rested my head in my hands, and closed my eyes. I was brought back to full awareness by a woman, the mother of three children from the table across from mine. She asked me if I was okay and if she could get me anything to eat or drink. I replied, "no", as politely as I could with a soft smile and told her that I was simply waiting for my friend, that he'd be there soon. I was honestly flattered by her offer. A few minutes later she returned to my table with a chocolate chip cookie and a bottle of Snapple green tea; she told me that my burrito would be brought to me soon. I was absolutely dumbstruck and thanked her as best my brain would let me form the words. She told me, I don't recall verbatim from being in shock, that everything'll turn out alright. Something along those lines. I couldn't believe such an act of kindness. I was not depressed or sad, simply waiting for my friend so that we could discuss business. Words cannot describe how thankful I am of her generosity.
If anyone knows who this woman is I speak of, please tell her of my sincerest thanks. She is a kind woman. I would love to thank her in person if given the chance and repay her what she spent on my meal (it was delicious).
So, to that kind mother, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
