Apples of Gold

 

 
I sat my grocery basket down in the supermarket, at I was choosing these apples yesterday. I found 8 round, nice and fresh Pink Lady apples, and I sat them down to the grocery basket, and went on.
 
As I was standing in the que to pay for my groceries, a smiling lady came to me and said "I'm sorry to disturb you, but you seem to have mistaken with your grocery basket ... You are carrying the basket with my groceries!"
 
I looked down to the basket and was surprised ... under the apples was not my zucchini nor the bread I had chosen, but a milk and other things, I hadn't put down! I said to her that I was so sorry - that I must have picked her basket up after choosing the apples! The lady smiled to me kindly and said that everything was fine - it was better to swop the baskets now, before paying for the groceries. She kindly showed me the way to my own grocery basket - it was standing by the fruit section, under the apples.
 
I'm thankful for the kind lady that she came to me and pointed out, that I was carrying her basket ... instead of maybe thinking that "How odd - that woman is carrying my grocery basket without even noticing, that it isn't hers?!"
 
So I totally agree, that

 
A word fitly spoken is like
apples of gold
in a setting of silver.
 
Proverbs 25:11

    1. I guess I was lucky to have taken a basket, that belonged to such a sweet person! If someone ever takes my basket, I'll surely be as kind as she was to me!

  3. I am glad she was so kind in her approach. It isn't something I've done, but I could certainly see myself doing it. The apples are quite beautiful!

    1. Hi Lisa, Yes - we all have tha days where we're more or less distracted by our thoughts ... That takes our focus from the things we're doing.

  4. I have done it with a shopping trolley Nina, not actually walked off with it but parked mine and then went and put a couple of items into someone elses. We both laughed. Pink Lady's are my favourite apples. We grow many in our South West area of Western Australia.

    1. Hi Linley - oh boy, it's good that you both just laughed! I wonder if the Pink Apples I bought actually are from Australia - I need to check that :-) They tasted really delicious!
