I had just left the grocery store and was pushing the cart to my car when I got hit on.

"Excuse me. Has anyone ever told you how beautiful you are?", I heard. In my mind I thought, yes, my husband does every day.

I turned around and before me stood a young man. He couldn't have been older than 12 or 13 years old. This is a first.

I thanked him, impressed that such a young soul would find a 31 year old woman attractive and had the courage to pay me a compliment.

I loaded my car and started to push my cart to the storage carousel when he offered to take it for me. I smiled as I thanked him and wished him a happy holiday.

Maybe I made his day but he certainly made mine after a stressful morning. I think he will definitely make some girl really happy one day as I watched him get in the passenger seat with his mom or grandma. I wanted to tell her that she's doing a great job.
