The Grocery Fairy

Last night when I got home from work, tired and hungry, I noticed right away that someone had been inside my home. A lamp was lit, like a beacon welcoming me into the house, and I knew I hadn't left the lamp on. I looked around to see what else had been disturbed, and saw my kitchen floor was covered in grocery bags. A quick look inside the fridge revealed that that it was full, too. The grocery fairy had visited and left me all kinds of staples to start off my kitchen pantry! I got sugar and flour, salt and pepper, canned goods, and paper products. There was even a little potpie waiting for me to heat up for a late after-work dinner. There were breakfast items and meat packages, pasta, rice, and pudding snacks. I grasped a carrot and held it high, like Scarlet O'Hara, and shouted, "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again!"

No, not really, but it was a great feeling to know that my cupboards were full. Plus, someday it will be a good sermon illustration! Thank you, grocery fairy!
