Dear Marco and the couple standing behind me at Wal-Mart tonight...

Dear Marco,
You don't know me and I don't know you, and I'm sure you'll never read this. But I just want you to know that I am positive that you are an amazing person! You seemed a little stressed tonight, i'm sure working the graveyard shift at Wally World can make you want to pull your hair out at times, but I just wanted to Thank you for being so kind as you scanned the Marshmallow Mateys that I promised Bette that I would get for her.
I hope so much that you have a good life and that your family shows you that they love you and appreciate all that you do for them and how hard you are working for them! I often see people riding bicycles down the street on Hot days like today with a cooler in one hand that they probably brought their lunch to work in. And I say a little prayer in my heart for them asking Heavenly Father to please have someone waiting for them when they get home from work to greet them with a hug and a kiss and tell them thank you for working so hard for their family. I don't know why I felt such great love toward you like you were a member of my family. But I hope that my smile and friendly conversation helped you to not be too stressed about the long line behind me.
And if anyone out there is ever at Walmart around midnight and the man with the kind face behind the register is Marco...will you please give him one of the friendliest smiles that you have, no matter how big of a hurry you might be in? Thank you so much!

And dear cute couple standing behind me in line to buy a 12 pack of Dew and a pink plastic Ruler,
I wasn't trying to eaves drop, but I couldn't help hearing the sweet things that you were saying and having said to you. I think what caught my attention at first was hearing you (guy) saying so sweetly to you (girl) "I just want to take care of you, I worry about you" I also heard you (girl) say "I'm sorry" about something, I don't know what, but what was the sweet response from you (guy)??? "Sorry for what? For being so amazing???" I also observed from the corner of my eye a little huggin' going on and it just made my little heart so happy!!! I am so happy for you two! Because I know that you are going to have a wonderful life together!
How do I know this you ask??? Because I have my very own sweet "guy standing behind me at Wal-Mart" in my life too. Who says those exact same things with the exact same sincerity, who is the reason that I have no feelings of Jealousy at all that one might have from hearing such precious words being said to them.
Man, I love you guys too! And I don't know ANY of you!
