Here’s a touching story to brighten up your day for sure.
Practicing compassion does give a sense of happiness not only to the recipient but also to the doer. It first may seem a ‘selfish’ act to do good deeds for your own ‘happiness’. However, it is still ‘philosophically’ better than to give pain to others or just be ‘compassionate’ for your own public praise.
A similar act of kindness came to the attention when a mother of three energetic and athletic boys, Robin McFadden, was at the Grocery store buying items that are requisite for the athletic body of her sons. She usually manages her limited monthly budget through discount coupons and weekly offers. However, this time, her expenses exceed the money she had with her.
Her kids were exhausted and the youngest two were fussy. All the while, Robin was trying to fish through her purse for coupons and money to pay. She was so distracted by everything that was going on, that she had no idea she was in line ahead of a celebrity!
“How much is she short?” came a voice from behind the frazzled mom.
That’s when Robin saw who it was. It turns out this kindness from a “stranger” wasn’t really a stranger at all, but a celebrity!
“He laughed, walked around me, put his card in the machine and said, ‘Watch this.'” Robin recalled.
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy paid for the groceries of the struggling mom. And Robin cried tears of gratitude at the unexpected blessing!
Robin recalled, "I told him that he was going to make me cry, gave him a hug, thanked him and took the photo!"
Robin asked the comedian for a picture and he happily obliged. "He was such a great guy and I was so happy and lucky to have met him," she said.
To pay it forward, Robin says she donated to a friend in need just last week and feels that her run-in with Foxworthy may have been "good karma."
"I was elated," McFadden said of the incident. "I had never been that close to a celebrity."
The mother shared her photo with Foxworthy on her Facebook page, where it quickly spread.
