It Was Raining
I was taking both my young girls out shopping. I decided my eldest was old enough to walk beside me and the baby in the stroller. She did well enough at first. Then she got a wild hair and took off by herself sprinting. I started screaming her name and she just appeared around corner saying, "Whaaat?"
I was flustered by the time we checked out and she was low on her attention span. We walked out and I saw it was still raining. I turned back around and told her we were going to get an umbrella. A woman stopped and said, "You need an umbrella?"
I didn't think anything of it and said, "Oh yeah, we're just going to go buy one." Then I turned back around.
She said, "Here have mine." We went back and forth for a little bit. I couldn't take her umbrella and I needed to buy one anyway. She then said that it was a cheap one and assured me it worked even though it wasn't all to great. Then she said that I wouldn't have to buy one. I felt bad that she was going to walk out in the rain and just couldn't. So I asked her if she was sure about it...
She told me happy holidays as she handed it to me. I said thank you in a very surprised tone. Then I told my daughter that it was really nice. She looked up at me confused and kind of wandered off with the umbrella. So there was a toddler meandering in different directions chasing puddles with me chasing after her. Ha ha! But still, the nice gesture made my day.
