I fell in love at Aldi

She glanced up at the yoghurt on the shelf,

Wishing she could reach it.

But with all her effort, she couldn’t.

So she asked for your help.

“Young Man, can you please help me?”

And of course, you stopped, looked her in the eyes and happily handed it to her.

Once she had her yoghurt, we continued shopping,

But as we lined up to pay, there she was again.

Beautiful in her white hair and crinkled skin.

And as most people feel at Aldi during checkout, she was flustered.

So as she reached in her coin purse to pay, her hands shook and she dropped them all on the floor.

And I watched as you immediately went to her side and whispered,

“Don’t stress.

It’s okay.

I got it.”

And in that moment, I gasped as I fought tears in my eyes.

Because I could see how big your heart was for humanity and it brought me to my knees.

And even still, when I think back to that moment I cry because your love for this world is so pure and beautiful I don’t know how to comprehend it.

All I can say is, I fell in love at Aldi.
