She was waiting in line for her regular cup of plain black coffee. The rain had soaked her through and the overly conditioned shop was giving her a chill to rival the great snow strom of ’06.
Her car was in the shop…again. And she’d just gotten an email from her husband that said it would be twice what the mechanic first thought. Twice what they had in their pitiful savings account.
It took every ounce of strength within to hold the tears back when she approached the counter.
As she placed her order, guilt swept over her for spending $2 when she knew every penny counted right now.
But as she went for her wallet, the clerk smiled. It was a deep and sincere smile… one that pierced the black clouds in her mind and brushed her worries away, if just for a moment.
He motioned for her to put her wallet back.
It’s been taken care, Marie.
And in that insignificantly small moment, love won.
Because love? Love always wins.
