True Valentine's Day Love ... In the Checkout Line

AldiadBy Mary Kunz Goldman

Buzz loves today's My View story about the gentleman who went to India on the fellowship, only to discover his true love was waiting back home.

It made us want to tell a story of our own that was also sweet.

The scene: Aldi, yesterday, in North Buffalo. Buzz was in the checkout line. We were scrambling to bag our stuff and heard the customer behind us talking to the cashier.

The customer was a guy wearing frayed jeans. He looked like a construction worker. He was buying a little stuffed bear and some of those yummy German chocolates you can get at Aldi on the cheap.

"We're dead broke," we heard him say. "But my wife was in here the other day and she loved this bear." He was beaming as he showed it off.

Then he held forth to an appreciative audience, Buzz included, about how beautiful Valentine's Day cards are to be had at Dollar Tree, and about the card he had scored there for his wife, for a buck.

This guy kept glowing as he talked about how his wife would love the card and the bear. And Buzz thought: What love!

His wife is a lucky gal!

It really is the thought that counts.
