Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Paying Forward Flowers

--by AtoJ, posted Jul 15, 2010

I posted a story earlier about a guy who handed out some flowers to us at the bus depot. 

Some days after that, a person at my church left a gift card for a local grocery store for me.  I don't know who left it for me. 

I ended up buying a bunch of flowers with my groceries.  I decided I would give them out.  I had troube getting the guts giving them away at the bus depot.  So, I ended up giving away three or four as I walked home from the bus depot. 

I saw an old lady looking in a window of a local restaurant and asked her if she wanted a flower.  She asked me if I was selling them.  I ask again if she wanted a flower, gave her one and walked away. 

I hope she remembers it a little.
