Random Acts Of Kindness

You very rarely see random acts of kindness. So I will share mine with you.

Today I was in the lineup at the coffee store drive thru. Drive thru's are one of my favourite things, who wants to haul 2 kids in and out of the car. This lineup was long and if you don't know the parking lot you can make a wrong turn before the entrance. A woman in front of me did this, and therefore lost her place in line. Other cars were passing her as she tried to get back in. I stopped and waved her to go ahead. She waved at me, something you don't see anymore either. Remember when people use to wave after you let them in on the highways. Anyway...when I got up to the "box" to order I was informed that the person in the car in front of me had bought me a large coffee. How sweet was that. As she drove off I looked over and waved at her.

This has helped me remember there are still good people out there. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy. There is such as thing as karma.

So everyone go out and pay it forward - you never know what you will get back.

  1. That is so nice. I know that in todays crazy life, people don't take the time to be nice to others. People are so use to rude gestures and rude people that it is a complete shock when someone waves you on or says thank you. Those are the stories I love to hear! Have a great weekend!
