    The Perfect Strangers

    It’s quite nice at times in life when absolute strangers just step in and help at the most random times.  

    Those sorts of people are not filled with their own rushed agendas and “road rage sort of self importance”.  But I’m talking about those actions that are done in giving ways – from small nice gestures up to the huge leaps and bounds. 

    For example…. the holding of a door longer than the moment needed for the next person, a driver waving you out of turn to give you right of way or someone taking the time to “notice something” that needs to be acted on for one reason or another….guess it’s just the etiquette we can be surprised by at times from those we’ve never met.

    Well, today, I’ve had a double hit of “Perfect Stranger-ism” —-one graced me, the other I was able to give another. 

    OK, first the story of me giving to another :).  

    I had a busy morning with client work lined up.  So after dropping the girls off at school (proud to say another successful mommy morning routine and drop off solo!)….I quickly stopped off at the grocery store knowing the day would quickly run away if I didn’t so first.  I had random bank stuff to do and food bits to pick up.  As usual, I forgot the reusable shopping bags in the car, so after hitting the “in store bank” …..out to the car I went, to get my stack of ”go green” shopping bags. (Bruce, I know you are proud!) 

    As I approached our car, I realized a lady alone (let’s just say “a bit older than me”) pushing her cart to her car right across from ours.    AND it sure looked like the cases of soda were on sale and she had stocked up! 

    Call it silly, but over the years in the super market parking lots, I’ve always tried to seek out people that might need help to get out of the rain quick or those that might just need a hand to get their groceries in the car – sometimes because of their age, ailments, and other times  due to the sheer volume of their unloading task …. or simply put, to help another mom with the extra hands when I’m,  for once, not the one in need!

    Today as any other day in the last few months, I wanted to be the “old Sue”….or I guess better put “still Sue”, or just “Sue”…I think you know what I mean.

    Cancer does not need to consume you, as I think you can see is my take on things.

    So………..I approached the lady and she graciously declined my offer.  Of course, I never taken no for an answer.  

    I asked if she would settle on me only doing half the work….later she shared, she had suffered an injury to her arm and this was indeed a great help…but in asking for details on how the injury occurred, it was tied to a wonderful show performance of her grandson. All I could say, was, “Well, You were having a good time noneless when it happened.”  

    A tiny bit of me realized she really embraced that positive angle. 

    So from my inner soul and wisdom of my own struggles in mind, I said to her, “Well, sometimes life slows you down for reasons to see other things – so you be sure to rest, enjoy others help when needed and stay well”. I received the most wonderful smile and a bit of lovely chit chat continued until all the bags made it to her car.

    As I shut her trunk, all loaded with her groceries, I wished her and her not so well packed set of eggs (my fault) a smooth trip home!

    Something of a sign, to me, for more than one reason —–her hurt arm and me not knowing …..and her having no idea I only had a right arm to use to move everything from her cart to car to spare left arm use right now. 

    But it it was empowering to me.  This was a help to us both. 

    It made me feel normal and helpful …I wished her a lovely day and smiled warm inside….and off we both went our separate ways. 

    And then later today, we had a visit from a couple that graciously took our request for help us with some ongoing personal projects  we manage.  Normally just some of my tasks that I wing on the fly, half minded.  But I knew I needed to  replace “me” before surgery months back.  

    There were some folks that had worked with us along the way that really shined and they were more than pleased to step up to the plate to fill in gaps.  They had no idea was was going on with me and my health in advance. 

    As life would have it, somethings fell terribly apart right before my hospital entry. But  I became so at rest knowing I had help and today, it was wonderful to meet them in person as they helped spare us the trip to bring a boat of furnishings from CT to PA.  Simply amazing!
