Everything's coming up roses!
My day started off as usual. I did my morning workout and went for a run. Feeling energized, I thought I'd finish up Christmas shopping.
The stores were choatic and crowded but, I did manage to finish. On my way home, I decided to stop by Tim Horton Donuts and grab a coffee. After joining the line of cars waiting to place an order, I fumbled in my change purse to find the correct change.
It was my turn - "Can I have a medium coffee with double milk and no sugar."
My mind was preoccupied as I drove up to the takeout window. The young girl smiled and handed me my coffee. When I reached out to hand her the money, she said - "It's already been paid for." Sitting dumbfounded, I asked - "By who?"
I was pleasantly surprised when she told me that the man in the car in front of me told her that he'd pay for my order too. I couldn't believe it, a perfect stranger - out of the goodness of his heart paid for my coffee. What a wonderful gesture of kindness!
It was impossible for me to follow and thank him personally as he had already turned on to the main road - but, I think he wanted it to happen that way. I can just imagine the smile on his face. Afterall, you can't do something so nice and not feel a little spark of happiness.
This man's simple act of kindness made my day and I plan to pay it forward!
Have a wonderful day, my friends!
