Shopper’s kindness made holidays special

There really is a Santa Claus! Talk about kindness and generosity. While shopping at Catherine’s Ladies’ Shop on Dec. 17, I was admiring a cute pin about hairdressers – I had done that as a career for over 30 years. I decided due to circumstances not to buy it. The store manager, another shopper and I all commented the cuteness of the pin.

The other shopper paid for her purchase and departed. While my purchases were being prepared, the pin appeared on the top and the manager said Merry Christmas. The other shopper had purchased it for me.

I have no idea who you are, but I was compelled to write this and I hope you see it. Thank you very sincerely for your kindness.
