marisella’s christmas rhubarb pie

December 24, 2010

I met her once earlier while she was buying fabulously priced rhubarbat 12.99 Lb. … i talked to her about how i remember it so fondly from childhood… she talked about how she made rhubarb pie for the first time when she met her husband. Rhubarb? Then three days later on december 23rd… while working my 11.5 hour shift at the store with completely, impossible customers… marisella, an almost stranger came in and gave me one piece of hot rhubarb pie right from her own oven. She briefly introduced me to her husband john… then turned and walked out of our store… leaving me once again with the lovely memories of my childhood in the deep, pacific northwest and my aunt who grew yellow roses.

this one random act of kindness…
and i wondered… will I ever be able to thank her?
