postage stamp

This morning I went to the post office to purchase stamps for my announcements.
I was running late, and there was a long line. A woman behind me told me she loved my red lipstick, then we began talking about my wedding, and her daughter who is recently engaged. I bought my stamps and began putting them on my envelopes before realizing I was one short.
I looked at the huge line in desperation, when she asked, "Are you short on stamps?"
"Yes."
"Would you allow me to purchase some for you as a wedding gift?"

She bought me three stamps, totaling $1.32.
I almost cried it was so nice of her.
And I keep wishing I had asked for her address so I could send her an announcement.
I love kind strangers.

p.s. if any of my blog friends would like an announcement, comment by leaving your name and address. Or email it to me (email in my contact tab)

I would love to send you one.
