I loved this story shared by my reader, Lynne, who experienced the kindness of a stranger while dining with her daughter.
I wanted to share my best Pay It Forward moment: I had dinner at Applebees tonight with my 19 year old daughter. After we were done and asked for the bill, our waiter informed us that we “were good”, that the gentleman at the bar had taken care of our bill. WHAT? (My 20ish year-old self actually had a small pit in my stomach thinking that this was NOT what I wanted to deal with in front of my daughter, fully expecting to find an old drunk at the bar). She and I walked to the bar to an older, well-dressed guy and a young college-age boy. Neither of whom I recognized. We thanked them profusely and the boy stated that he was out to dinner with his dad and we looked like a mother and daughter out to dinner as well, so they wanted to do something nice. Other than telling us that, they really weren’t interested in talking to us! WOW. I’m still in shock and cannot wait to pay it forward! #payitforward

Recently a reader named Holly shared with me her powerful story of helping another in need. I hope her story brightens your day as much as it has mine!
