Sometimes it's hard not to sigh, but hopefully you say, "Don't worry!" and find your inner patience.

A MS woman witnessed an act of kindness when she was checking out at lunch, and the story has gone viral.

Spring Herbison Bowlin posted a photo to Facebook with a story about what happened at the retailer last Thursday in Clarksdale, Mississippi. In the post, Bowlin describes the encounter where an elderly man, who had just had his items scanned was fiddling with change. He looks apologetically back at me and starts taking handfuls of change out of his pockets.

Bowlin said, "He miscounts and starts to get flustered". Embarrassed, he turned to her, voice and hands shaking, and said, "I'm so sorry".

"My heart was warmed at Wal-Mart during lunch", she writes. The man was apologizing as he continued to pull out change to pay for his groceries.

FDA chief warns about kratom to treat opioid addiction
As a result, the agency has begun seizing supplies of kratom and taking steps to prevent future shipments from being imported into the United States, the FDA says.

That's when the cashier took his hands and dumped all of the change on the counter. "We will do this together", the cashier said, according to Bowlin.

"I want to be more like her", Bowlin says.

Even through the apologizing, the cashier worked with the man and helped him finish the transaction.

"She shakes her head and replies, 'You shouldn't have to thank me, baby".
