Random Acts of Kindness (SOL16 #26)
Today while I was out running errands I stopped for my iced coffee. I'm useless without it, and definitely needed my caffeine fix. I hit the Starbucks drive through and waited patiently in the long line. I didn't mind. I had my music on, windows cracked (it's still a little chilly), and it's a beautiful sunny day. I pulled up to the window and the barista hands me my coffee. Ahhh, immediately I was happily looking forward to the nectar of the Gods that I was about to drink.
He looked at me and said, "The woman in front of you paid for your drink." Astonished, I just sat there. "Really?" I finally managed to spit out. "She said, Happy Easter." he continued.
Immediately I asked if I could pay for the person behind me. He smiled, swiped my card, and told me to have a good day.
I pulled out of the parking lot smiling, appreciative of the woman in front of me who reminded me how much random acts of kindness can make your day.
