Pass it on...

A few days before Thanksgiving we needed painters tape so Jim asked if I would pick up some. I went to the store and realized as I started toward the line I had forgotten my billfold. I went to the car and got all the change I could find, hoping it would be enough. When it was my turn I discovered I needed one more dollar. As I started to walk away, realizing I would need to go home and get more money, the lady behind me laid a dollar bill down and said, "Now do you have enough?" That act of kindness touched me in a deep way! I remember thinking that I hoped that one day I could do something nice like that for someone. Well, yesterday I was at a store where I had a coupon for $10 off if I spent $30 or more. I was not going to use it and as I was standing in line heard the cashier beside me ask the lady she was waiting on if she had any coupons. The lady said that all her coupons were out date so she didn't have any. I did!! I reached in my purse and handed her my coupon! I loved the surprised look on her face as she thanked me! Scripture says, "it is more blessed to give than to receive" I know I felt so happy to give to her. Watch and listen...there might be someone you can pass along an act of kindness to!

Mmmm interesting, ten fold. The first lady gave you ONE dollar, then you gave TEN dollars...wonder what will be next?

That is a very cool story!
