Paying It Forward

One day last week I stopped into a local grocery store for a few items.  I had to wait a moment for the cashier.  Another customer was giving her a gift.  As it turned out, the cashier had at one time admired the customer's sweatshirt.  She found out where she bought it, and bought herself one.
Over time, the cashier misplaced her sweatshirt and had no idea as to how or where she did so. She shared this story with her customer.
The day I got on line, the customer had brought a brand new replacement sweatshirt as a gift to the cashier.  The cashier was truly speechless and stunned at this act of kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.


 
This was an such an inspiring moment to witness.  It was my gift for the day and a reminder for me to pay a kindness forward.  When you feel good, and witness others feeling good (and loved!) your level of stress will plummet!
