You know the scene from "Terms of Endearment" when Debra Winger is in the supermarket?

 Well I had a bit of a moment.  Stuck in Aldi with two rowdy three year olds, with no $2 coin or token for the trolley, stressing out because they don't have baskets, trying to make the children carry the groceries, trying to figure out how to leave (one-way automatic doors eek!)
It all sounds so stupid now.
When everybody else was looking away embarassed, one kind woman gave me a coin for the trolley.  It was all I could do to manage a little 'thankyou' at the time and stop myself bursting into tears.  So I would just like to say thankyou to that kind lady. 
Go rent "Terms of Endearment".  Its a wonderful film, watch it, don't live it.


  1. Oh dear, those precious moments of panic have me breaking out in a cold sweat - how kind of the lady to save a mum's day:).

  2. What a lovely thing for that lady to do. Wonderful. There are just some moment some days that I too just don't know how I am going to survive.
