I was doing my weekly grocery shopping. Minding my own business. I also happened to be kid-free and was enjoying the moment.
I was strolling through the produce department where I came upon the potato bins. Do I individually pick out some small red potatoes or just get the more economical 5 pound bag? I very rarely get the big bags because we just don’t usually go through that many potatoes. Innocent questions running through my head.
That’s when I noticed the tag on the 5 pound bags. And then tears came out of nowhere! (I was so grateful that the store was not crowded and no one was around!)
This caught me so off-guard. To see Autism Awareness being spread through POTATOES! It took everything I had in me to keep myself from sobbing. There I stood. In front of the potato bins. Tears welling up and spilling over down my cheeks. I was so moved that an entire food brand would champion our cause! Of course, I grabbed a bag and tried to somewhat collect myself. I still had the rest of my grocery shopping to do.
