This morning on my way to work, I got off BART. I haven't set foot in starbucks in a while, and I just really wanted a Vente coffee so I went in. two women were standing if front of me. the first one get to the register and orders her coffee, as the other tells a different slinger of caffeine her drink order. As the second woman pulls out her cash to make her way to the next register, the first woman throws up a linebacker block that belongs in the NFL. This woman then pays for the second woman's coffee, and the two start a conversation that looks as though they will be long time friends from now on. Now the woman behind me in line also sees this unfold and I see a smile crack on her seemingly sad face. (perhaps just not awake face) the combination inspires me and I too pay for the woman behind me. The woman behind me smiles big, and says that I turned her day around for the better, in turn pays for the guy behind her! It gave me kind of a kick start, and I cannot stop smiling! amazing what a simple kind gesture can do for someone, as well as for yourself!
go out and be kind to a stranger!
