When You Least Expect It

Some days you know it is just going to be one of those days. I woke up 15 minutes late. I ran downstairs to grab a cup of coffee and heard drip, drip coming out of the Keurig. I tried a couple of quick fixes and was able to salvage a half full cup of coffee.

Traffic of course was the usual rush hour traffic. Narrowly missed getting into a fender bender by a person trying to put on their mascara-guess she got a late start too. Arrived to a full parking lot and finally found a place to squeeze my car.

Work was uneventful but knew I had a staff meeting at 4 p.m. Unfortunately it lasted until after 5. That would not be a problem except for the fact I had one poor dog awaiting my arrival. Rush hour going home was twice as bad as this morning. I did not get home until after 6. Kibbles, the wonder dog she is greeted me with a wag of the tail and scratch at the door. I took her for a walk and we were fine. I then went to the refrigerator only to discover the outdated milk. It would not be a problem but I needed it to prepare dinner.

Off to the convenience store as it is only 5 minutes from my house. I grabbed the milk then took my place in line. When it was my turn at the register the cashier said, “Your milk was paid. The customer only asks that you pay it forward to someone else.” Unfortunately the customer had already gone by the time I reached the parking lot.

The day started off as a grey day but one kind act made me smile. I will definitely pay it forward and ask all who read this to do the same. You never know what a difference you will make in someones day

      Thanks for your comment and I was able to pay it forward as well. There was a man behind me in the cafeteria line at work. He was someone’s family member. I paid for his lunch. I am planning to do this more often.
