Being Beautiful On The Inside

Two years ago right around this time of year, my fiance and I wear shopping. We were going through a hard time but managing. As we stood in line waiting to check out we were talking to each other. There were 2 women in front of us. One was a woman with a little girl about 2 years old. You could tell she wasn't well off. She had a few personal items, things that you would need. The baby wanted some candy so she put a small bag on the conveyor belt. When she was checking out she went to pay only to find she was a bit short. She started to put things back and set the candy aside. The women directly in front of  us said no I will pay for the rest. You need those items and the baby should have her candy. It was like twenty dollars.

I have to say I think that was the nicest thing I have ever seen someone do. My fiance and I both told her how very nice that was and she should be proud that she was so generous. The women smiled and said I am lucky and have been there myself.

Doing something nice like that makes you feel good about yourself. Those who can give should. It is never about how much we have in monetary value that means anything. It's that helping hand and the feeling of making someones day. Putting a smile on a child's face with a small bag of candy.
If you want to feel beautiful do something nice for someone who can't do for themselves.
Like the lady in the store she not only helped someone but when looking at her face she was the most beautiful person I saw that day. 


  1. You brought tears to my eyes. You are so right. If you don't have money to give, Call your local salvation army and volunteer to be a bell ringer. As a family we did it every Christmas (just for 4 hours). Watching others dig deep and empting pockets(especially those that did not have much)was such great feeling. And humbling.

  2. Awe I didn't mean to make anyone cry.
    Craig and I were actually working with the salvation army at the time. We were battling alcoholism at the time. The salvation army is a wonderful organization. Even donating your used clothing is a great way to help out. Don't forget those items you don't use around your house or a lamp that is in the attic not being used.

    The salvation army helps so many people in so many ways. It is a great way to feel beautiful helping others who have problems or need help. Every time I think of that day I feel that there is more good in this world then we ever hear about.
