Did Jesus Pass By?

24 Sep

I was at Trader Joe’s
in Lousiville
my wife was in the hospital

I could not find flowers
the florists were closed

Went to Trader Joes for wine
and saw flowers

The blonde manager
with a ring in her nose
and lips
asked if she could help me

she selected the flowers
and gave me a Vace
and added water
to keep the flowers alive

She asked who the flowers were for
I said my wife who is in the hospital
she said when you check out
give the check out peson her name
the flowers are a gift from me
there will be no charge to you

I went to the car
and for the first time in years
I cried
for this act of kindness
