While doing her daily groceries shopping in a rush, a mother of three had to stop for a while. What she did melted many hearts.
Rachael Scott was waiting in line to pay for her groceries when she noticed that a family is selectively grocery shopping. They were choosing only the groceries they could afford. Apparently, the treats for the children could not fit in their budget. The family was putting these items carefully aside.
Rachael quickly realized what she had to do. She saw the worry in the children’s eyes waiting to if they will get the food they wanted. So, she stepped forward and paid for it. She then wrote on Facebook:
“I felt the Lord say buy it. Our family lives well, and we have what we need and a [sic] enough for extras. I didn’t have a clue what it would cost but I said yes Lord. I spoke up and said go ahead get those the Lord is paying for those extras today.”
“The mom just looked at me. I was trying not to make a big deal and just do it, but I saw one of the little girls wipe tears from her eyes and it almost broke me.”
“My kids were having a good old time because they KNEW they were getting the things they need and what they wanted as treats,” she wrote. “Those children were watching anxiously not sure if they could get the things they wanted.”
When Scott ended her shopping, and she’d filled more than her kitchen shelves. Soon after she made those children happy, her post went viral. It has over 67,000 shares on Facebook.
