Today’s new activity was sooooo fun. I had some errands to run during lunch so I stopped by Chik-fil-A for an iced tea (thanks W. for the tea recommendation). While in line waiting for my drink, I remembered KD’s suggestion and decided today was the day to pay it forward, afterall Karma was not working on my side last week. I was the last in line for a few minutes…but hey it was 12:15 on a sunny day. I knew the line would amass behind me…and it did. The lucky driver of a purplish two door Pontiac pulled in behind me.
Bingo- my lucky winnner: a middle aged woman with blondish hair. Thoughts swirling in my head about who she was. All the time, hoping she wasn’t placing an order for 12 kids who were home from school on Spring break. So exciting. Quick post on facebook, and it was my turn to pay.
I was kind of nervous. Defintely butterflies in my stomach. Tried to play it cool and told the lady that I’d like to pay for the person behind me. She smiled and asked me if I knew this person in the purplish Pontiac. I very proudly said no. She told me that she once read that for every one person who does this, 7-8 people will pay it forward just by hearing the stories.
Pay it forward people. Next time you swing by a fast food drive through consider doing a nice gesture for someone else. It’ll make you feel so good from the inside out. And….you never know when you might be the one of receiving end!
Tomorrow- I’m going Vegan for the day! Let me know if you have any pointers. Don’t think I know any vegans.
