I was shopping at Whole Foods, the other day,
and when I moved my small cart over to allow room for a wide load of produce to pass through,
I knocked over some strategically placed plastic containers full of nuts.
Before I even realized what had happened,
a cute little, happy-faced boy (about 10 years old)
appeared out of nowhere,
and without saying a word,
began to pick the containers up and put them back on the shelf.
Not far behind him, a darling little girl (about the same age) came over to help,
as if she wanted "in" on the fun.
"How kind of you! Thank you!" I said, as the three of us cleaned up together.
Just then, I heard a mother's voice calling over.
"What are you two up to?" she asked.
"Did you ask them to help me?" I asked.
"No," she said, with laughter. "I was just wondering where they disappeared to!"
"WOW," I said.
And, after praising the two "do-gooders" and their mother,
I just stood there . . . . . . STUNNED.
I think I just met my heroes, I thought.
