CHEERS to the angel at Kroger. I was checking my groceries out at the Kroger store on Maplecrest Road. It is hard as I am 82 years old.
A woman was in front of me checking out. She had an item I had forgotten. She said, Run back and get the item. I will watch your cart for you. She had a beautiful smile, dark hair, olive skin, and a red coat.
I hurried back and noticed my cart was gone. I looked around the register, and there the woman in the red coat was with my cart. She waved and said, Come on, I paid for your items. I said, No stay there. I will pay you. She left my cart, smiled and said, Merry Christmas as she walked out the door.
I was only one or two minutes behind her. I looked and looked she was gone. Where did she go? I put my item in the car and went up and down the parking lot for 10 minutes thinking maybe she parked far away. No, she just disappeared.
I started to cry because the money I was to spend on my food items was the last I had for the month. Now I have enough to last me to the end of the month. Was she real? Was she an angel?

While shopping at Glenbrook Square, I inadvertently misplaced a gift I had purchased earlier that day. After retracing my steps and no luck in finding my purchase, I contacted the mall office and a few of the stores I had shopped in.
I left my name and phone number at each place in case my merchandise was found.
Since I have not heard from the mall, I assume someone has taken my gift, which was for my husband, for themselves. JEERS and bah humbug to the person who took the gift. I just feel truly disappointed in my fellow man. I am a bit naïve, but I sincerely thought my gift would be found and returned.
