Earlier this evening a lovely woman gave me vouchers she couldn’t use for Dunnes Stores as we were standing in the long checkout.
I got €40 off my shopping! Thank you mysterious benefactor! It reminded me of the boost we get from unexpected kindness and I will pass this along some day in similar circumstances.
Despite the queues everyone was patient in the shop and it’s cheering that the spirit of the holidays is being honoured (in that moment at least).
I hope you all find consideration, and can offer it to others, at this frenetic time of the year.
