Pay It Forward

I went to the Starbucks near my house the other day. When it was my turn to pay, I was told that the person in front of me had paid my bill and said to tell me “May God Bless You”. Not even thinking I said, “Great, here’s for the next car. Tell them I say the same thing.”

I handed her some money. She smiled and rang it up.

I stopped by later that day to see if this pay it forward was still continuing, sure enough it had gone on all day and over 68 cars had paid for the person behind them all with the message of May God Bless You.

It’s funny how stories like this one don’t make the news or even the local paper, but touch us in a special way.
