Random Acts of Kindness

I was thinking about this earlier today; I remembered a particular instance where I was in the Starbucks drive thru ready to pay for my drink. When out of nowhere, to my surprise, the cashier told me that the car in front of me had paid for my drink! Just because! So of course, I decided to pay for the car behind me. I can only hope that it continued.

So I have decided to do this very same thing tomorrow morning! I will treat myself to a coffee, and pay for a strangers' as well. Hopefully the chain will continue throughout the day. But if it does not, then so be it! I will know that I have done a Random Act of Kindness! What a great start it will be to my Friday morning drive! I hope to remember to do this often, and learn to practice this more myself. I am also hoping that by doing this, others will pay it forward and somehow this will make someones day a little bit better, and a little bit brighter!
