Saturday night Mike and I went on a date to relax before finals, since we know we'll barely be seeing each other this week! As part of our date we went to go see a movie.
So we arrived at the theatre, got in line, and waited to buy our tickets. Once it was our turn and we had our tickets Mike handed the man the money for our movie and he simply replied with, "It's already taken care of." We both looked at each other highly confused and then back at the man who had just said this to us. He then said, "Someone has paid for your ticket. Merry Christmas!" We were still highly confused, but didn't ask anything else in case he would change is mind!
We then decided to get some popcorn with the money we hadn't spent on the tickets. As we were in line for that I saw several times the women who was in front of us in the ticket line watching us and smiling so joyfully. It made me cry. And have warm fuzzies all over! Something like that had never happened to me before. I thought it just happened in movies! :) It was very nice to feel the sweet and giving kindness of a random stranger. That's certainly what this time of year is all about.
