On Oct. 20 at about 11:30 a.m., I was in a Modesto discount store purchasing some items. When the cashier was ringing up the sale and I had my wallet out to pay, she said Its been paid. I said What? She said Its been taken care of. I looked at the gentleman behind me in line and he said Dont look at me. After a few seconds of shock I picked up my purchases, told the cashier to please thank the person who paid it forward and left in a bewildered, but touched state of mind.
We cant all do an act of kindness this way, but how much does a kind word, a helping hand, or a smile cost?
Thanks, stranger, for making my day brighter and giving me a lot to think about.
