Short and sweet today. Saturday my daughter came home from college for winter break. We drove through Starbucks to get an eggnog steamer (which, by the way, are delicious). As I got to the window to pay, the Starbucks guy told me that the car in front of us had paid for our drinks. I had never been the recipient of anything like this before. It was . . . great. After we got over our surprise, my daughter and I looked at each other and then asked the Starbucks guy what the car behind us got, and we paid for them. It was so much fun!! And even though we ended up paying a couple dollars more for the car behind us than we would have if we had just paid for ourselves, it was . . . exhilarating! Seriously! I know . . . if you're driving through Starbucks, then you can afford to pay for it. But, still, it was fun. Next time we may try to help someone who CAN'T afford it (and I'm not talking about Starbucks).
Pay it forward (or, in our case, backward) . . . all year long!
