Pay it Forward!


The other day I was at Starbucks getting my coffee fix. Let's face it with 6 little ones in tow the Starbucks drive through is one of my best friends! I ordered my usual and pulled around to the window just as the previous customer was driving away. I took out my money to hand to the young man at the window. He just smiled and said the last customer paid for your coffee.


At first I thought seriously? I asked "Your kidding with me, right?" He just handed me my coffee and said nope have a nice day. I was so touched and humbled. Some one who had never even seen me bought my coffee. It really made my day :o)


The little things make a huge difference in someones day...think about it the next time you have a couple extra bucks in your pocket. :o)

oh, I love this story!
One recent evening, I was away doing a photo shoot around dinner time, so my husband took our five children out to eat. When dinner was over, the waitress brought a tray of five dishes of ice cream for the kids and said that the kind older couple at a nearby table wanted to treat our kids to dessert. They said they were impressed with their behaviors! (of chorse I asked whose kids he was feeding, and where had he stuck ours!)
Random acts of kindness are so refreshing and inspiring, aren't they?
P.S. I've recently discovered your blog. I'm enjoying your posts, and I love your jewerly!
