1. To pay it forward is the best feeling in the world.

    I don’t know why, but seldom do I see anyone let people go ahead of them in the grocery line. If I have quite a few groceries, and someone walks up holding only a few things, I always smile and let them go in front of me.

    While grocery shopping for Thanksgiving, I let a young man go ahead of me who only a few things in his basket. He thanked me, telling me he was on his break, and was hoping he would have enough time to pick up the last few things he needed for their Thanksgiving meal. I told him “no problem,” and we wished each other a Happy Thanksgiving, and parted ways.

    To my shock, when I saw the total for my groceries, there was a $10.00 credit? I asked the cashier what the credit was for? She smiled and told me the young man gave it to her to apply to my bill, and to thank me again.

    Well, yesterday I went to the store for a few things, the store was packed, and for the first time ever, the young lady in front of me turned around and told me to go ahead of her to check out! Wow, I was floored!

    Yes, you guessed…….I handed the cashier $10.00 and asked her to apply it to her bill, and tell her thank you again for me.

    (I’m glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better)

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a wonderful story-love it! It is those seemingly little gestures which can make such a big difference in someone’s day, and it can trigger a wave of kindness. The world needs more moments and gestures like this, so, let’s keep making them happen! Hope to return to work tomorrow:)

  2. Two good stories. Mimosas can cure most anything when dosed properly by a caring friend. The Starbucks story is just plain nice. Making someone’s day with a small financial, but large heartfelt gesture is very cool. Continue on your recovery. BTG
