SHE GOT It RIGHT-BLESS HER

How many of us have fairly much the same routine in the morning. Swing by Tim Hortons, join the cars in line to pick up a coffee, and drive away. We do this, despite having the same coffee in the automatic coffee maker chez nous.


Working at home at what I do means keeping my butt in the chair at the desk because I don’t want to lose my concentration.


Yet there we were last Friday making an exception by arriving at the takeout window, having yelled at a blank screen moments before to order a large coffee with milk and a tasty raspberry muffin for me to munch while at work.


W were about to pay when told the woman in the car ahead had paid for us.


A perfect stranger had paid for our order?

We saw a large black SUV, not one we recognized, disappear up the road.


Author’s comment: It might be naïve of me suggesting why don’t we all take a moment to show such an act of kindness? From time to time. A simple gesture. Someone who didn’t want to be thanked. I’m sure she must have known it made our day.
