An amazing thing just happened!

I had the most amazing thing just happen... I was sitting here watching a Christmas movie, and got a craving for some ice cream with chocolate sauce. LOL I had the chocolate sauce, but not the ice cream. I remembered that they had just built a new Family Dollar store about 2 blocks from where I live, so I decided to get a little exercise, and walk over there to get me some munchies. It's not a real movie night, without some munchies. LOL I wasn't sure what they had, since their food section was small, but ended up getting some Breyers Gelato Indulgences vanilla caramel flavored ice cream. That stuff is sooooo goooood!!! I just love the caramel and chocolate combination in any dessert. Anyway... I then noticed some egg nog, which I intended to pick up earlier today and didn't...so I got me some of that... Then I decided that I might want to munch on some chips, and picked up some Pringles. Okay... Okay... I got a little carried away here. LOL I wanted some dip, and they did not carry it, so I saw some cheez whiz, and decided to pick up a can of that, to squeeze on top of the chips. LOL One craving of some ice cream, turned into a shopping frenzy of junk food! I had not eaten any of this stuff in a long time, so I decided to treat myself. Then the most amazing thing happened. I was headed towards the register, and really was focused on getting there. I ended up having to go around this shopping cart, and when I got to it...this woman reaches her hand out to me as says: "I'll buy that..." Well... I looked up at her and kind of gave her a blank stare, and said: "What?" She repeated herself and said: "I'll buy that..." Then showed me some movies she was buying. (Not sure where that fit into the conversation.) Anyway... I was a little confused, and started towards the register again, and she stopped me yet again...and said..."I want to buy this for you..." I said: "Why?" She said: "Because I want to. Please let me buy it for you. Consider it a Christmas blessing." I hesitated a little bit...then said: "Okay... Thank you." I then told her that I had a bit of a bum day, so this was a nice treat for me. I also noticed that the card she paid with said: Georgia Peach. I asked her if she was from Georgia? She told me yes, but had been visiting here in Florida for a couple of months. The bill came to almost $11. I never saw this coming. I went to buy some ice cream, ended up with a handful of junk food; and then a total stranger comes up to me, and pays for it, out of the blue!!! Since God paid for this... I am going to take this as a "thumbs up" from Him, that He is giving me permission to eat it!!! LOL

This is a wonderful story, as you see Angles exist and they show in disguise.
