SURPRISES IN UNEXPECTED PLACES
It's amazing what treasures you can find if you keep your eyes open. Thinking outside the box helps too.
Most people probably don't think of the Dollar Store as a place to look for items such as toilet paper and other such commodities people have been hoarding during this COVID-19 pandemic. I certainly never did. To me the Dollar Store is a place where I go looking for crafts items, greeting cards, trash bags, storage containers, and stuff like that.
Well today I was in for a big surprise. I stopped by to see if they had paint, as well as some of my favorite snack, that I was out of. They had both. They also had a large supply of toilet paper and paper towel, which I don't need, so I didn't get any.
After I paid for my goods and was waiting for the receipt, I spotted a whole bunch of hand sanitizers on the counter. I asked if they were for sale, and the cashier said they were, with a limit of two per customer. I said I only needed one, and took out my wallet to pay for it, but the lady in line behind me insisted that I put my money away and let her buy it for me. Wow!
I hope the Lord blesses that kind and generous lady in a very special way today, and that she finds the alcohol she has been looking for so she can make her own wipes. Unfortunately they were out of that at the Dollar Store. Go figure!
