A Pay It Forward Ripple From The Toll Booth

On the road with my mom, drove on the Thruway (I-90) for about 1.5 hours to our exit, and at the booth the guy inside questioned why we were so happy?-because  mom and I were just cracking up over something. Ii paid our toll and then gave him $5.00 and a Smile Card to help pay the car behind us and asked him  to please give them the card.- We drove off and that car stayed at the booth for an extra minute and I'm sure was reading the card,hopefully happy and smiling. Our light turned green and off we went. Mom said, ''Humph, wow, I'm very impressed." I said ''I know, take a look at this person that you raised'' - it was Awesome!

Everything Evens Out Eventually

Friday we were out at a local restaurant and I asked my partner to pick a table that we would then get the bill for. He picked the same table that I had secretly chosen. It was a man, woman and child. We thought, "lets get their bill...anonymously of course!" So we worked it out with the waitress and I asked her to give them a Smile Card in place of their bill, which, along with tip came to about $46. I also won on a Quick Draw lottery ticket. Guess how much I won. Yup...$46.00. ... Read Full Story >>

She Accepted Some Unexpected Overtime, But Didn't Pack Extra Food. She Then Got Back To Her Desk With A Surprise Waiting

Last week I finally completed my first 6 months in my new position and by getting through my first 6 months I am now eligible to work overtime!  I was asked and accepted some today.

Well, because it was unexpected, I didn't have extra food or snacks packed and I had mentioned this to a co-worker in passing. After all the regular staff had gone home I returned to my work area to grab something and found that she had left me an apple and a note and an extra apple she had but wanted to give it to me ''just in case''.

What a nice gesture! A small, simple gesture - just perfect. Thanks!

Contagious Kindness

Happy Saturday !
I found a few more smile cards in an old wallet and so I paid the bill for a couple out at a local restaurant last night. I am but an instrument to be used for passing on kindness, and then hoping it spreads.

If something is going to be contagious, it should be Smiles and Kindness - trying to infect as many people as I can:).

Have a great weekend y'all<3.

Cold, Snowy Kindness

A few days ago I surprised a shopper at our local grocery. We were parked right next to each other and she was sitting in her vehicle to leave. I offered to brush off her windshield for her (she was waiting until I was done brushing off my vehicle before she got out of hers), and she gave me a big smile and a 'thumbs up' through the window. I brushed off her car and she thanked me - then off we went.

I think that must be the most universal sign, used all over the world and everyone understands it - - Thumbs Up !!
