Pay it forward

I went into Subway after work yesterday and I was having THE worst day. My boss yelled at me, my car died on the way in and then I realized I forgot my wallet when I went to pay. I apologized and was turning to leave when the guy working behind the counter took out his own wallet and paid for my sandwich. I told him he didn't have to, but he said we all have those days. He wasn't kidding. I came back to pay him for the sandwich and he refused to take it. So now it's my turn to pay it forward.

Such a small thing can have such a positive impact and turn the day more positive. Kindness is cheap but nothing is more valuable.

You never know what people are going through in life. Usually most people are going through some thing. That is why the smallest act of kindness is so greatly appreciated. It’s appreciated more than you’ll ever know and could be someone’s hero , and a lifelong memory. I used to pay for the persons toll behind me , until it went up to $12 . But there is always something you can do . Baking cookies goes a long way to your local fire department or senior center !

I went through the drive through at McDonald's once. I only had enough to get my daughter something even though I was hungry. When I got to the window to pay they told me that the person in front of me had paid. Needless to say I went back through and got myself something.
