So . . . . Cute Story . . .

Soooo . . .

I have a cute story . . .

I was supposed to work tonight - and as sometimes happens when you are a nurse (if you are very lucky, at least that's the way I look at it, some people share a different opinion . . .) you can get called off of your shift for the evening (I'm a night shift nurse) if the patient census is low and they have too many nurses scheduled for the current census.

Well the situation was amazing in itself, as it seldom happens to me! So my husband and I decided to celebrate and enjoy an unexpected date night!  We got a late start but arrived at the movie theatre just as the movie was starting.  To our dismay there was still a long line at the ticket window but we joined up at the end of the line.  Not long after our arrival, a man with a little boy on his shoulders came up to us in this long line of people and asked us if we were waiting to see a particular movie.  It did happen to be the one we were waiting for!  He offered us two free tickets that he had that were extra and not going to be used.  Hurray!  We got to skip out on the line and head into the movie just a few minutes after the beginning.  We followed him into the theater noticing that his family was already seated.  I couldn't help but be astonished at his thoughtfulness to leave his seat in the theater to offer his unused tickets to someone . . .

Once we arrived in the dark theater - a theatre usher whispered to us that there were no more seats, it was completely sold out, except for two remaining seats, close by each other but not together.   So we immediately slipped into the two seats.  Several families came into the theater after us looking for seats as they had oversold the show but had to be turned away.



What was the movie we were attending this evening?

Perhaps you can guess . . .

Yep!  You're right!



"17 Miracles"





We feel like we experienced several of our own this evening . . .   or perhaps . . .

it was just a coincidence?





I'm thinking 17 Miracles . . . plus one or two . . .    :)

What a wonderful experience for you! Sometimes the kindness of strangers is so heartwarming, don't you think?

I have not heard of this movie. But if that many people were wanting to see it, my guess is it is a good show. :)

That movie is a must-see for everyone in my opinion. So happy for your "miracle".

Oh, that is a sweet story. And I am glad you got the night off and enjoyed the movie. We went and loved it--although I hope you took tissues!
