Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Paying It Forward


--by kiwicat, posted Oct 27, 2016
I was getting coffee this morning, and the lady in front of me at the checkout was panicking. She had left her card at home and had no way of paying for her fruit and coffee. I said "I'll pay," and she gave me a hug! I just said, "Pay it forward, the world needs more kind acts." The best thing was tat she knew what "pay it forward" meant!

Thank you for sharing with us your honest surprise that the lady knew what pay it forward meant. You have a seldom found quality, that being your willingness to share real feelings over real experiences without fear of the possible consequences. Your fresh fearlessness is like a soft breeze at the beach--calming, relaxing and welcome. Smiles 4 the miles
