Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Thinking Outside the Bun to Share Smiles

--by mbutterfly, posted Apr 20, 2008

Last Friday, I went to Taco Bell late at night to get food. I looked down at my car door and remembered I had the Smile cards.  I smiled, drove up to the window to pay for my food and asked the cashier if I could pay for the food ordered by the person behind me.  The cashier looked puzzled, but agreed to my request. 

After I paid for my order, I gave the cashier a smile card.  The cashier read it, smiled and wished me good night. As I thought about how surprised the person in the car behind me would be, I smiled big and thanked God for my blessings.  My heart felt light, especially after having an emotional day.
