I posted this win signed Huck thread but I think it deserves it’s own attention.
The most amazing thing just happened to me and Danni, my daughter. We were in Goodwill looking at books. While I was looking at my books, Danni had found one she liked so she sat and read. It was time for us to go and I told Danni that I would get the book she was reading.
A gentleman approached me and asked if Danni was my daughter. I nodded and he handed me a business card. He told me that she had been reading the entire time that she had been in the store. He went on the explain that him and his wife buy books for kids when they see a child who loves reading. He told me to show the card at the register and he would be buying Danni’s book today.
I asked Danni if she wanted to get the book she has been reading and she said yes. The gentleman said “She’s half way through that one, pick out another one and I’ll get both.” Danni spent a couple of minutes looking through the books, picked out another one, and he walked us up to the register. As he was paying for them, Danni thanked him and they had a discussion of why she chose each book.
On the way out, Danni told me she couldn’t stop smiling!
Thank you Mr. Giovanna for your random act of kindness and making my daughter’s day/week/month/year. You taught my daughter and me that the world isn’t such a bad place after all and the smallest gesture can reap the largest rewards.
