"Thank you Cal from the Target on Snowden in Columbia MD! Last night I took my daughter to see Beauty and the Beast. As Belle has long been her favorite princess, her excitement about wearing her costume carried over into today. As we made our way through the store, an employee named Cal made it a point to stop not only to admire her costume but also chatted for awhile with her about the movie; he too had seen the night before. Although she was acting painfully shy, he patiently waited for her to slowly tell him her favorite parts and all about the birthday party she was invited to this weekend. They said goodbye and my daughter turns to me and goes, 'He is a very nice man' with a smile. This made my heart happy, he took the time to make her feel special. Ten minutes later, we once again crossed paths with Cal. He walked up to my daughter and knelt down to be on her level. With great care and sincerity, he asked if she could protect and keep this rose safe for the Beast. As she barely got out a shocked, 'YES!' he quickly handed me a gift receipt for the toy and told her not to forget her promise as he left.
I don't know what made him think to do such a kind act but it brought me to tears. In this crazy world, he took the time to create a special moment for a little girl who still believes in magic and that the world is filled with wonders and possibilities. A thousand thank yous will never be enough for you to understand what you did for my daughter and how you helped me see there IS a little magic left in this world."
