Like myself, I'm sure there are times in all our lives where we want to do something different. We follow the same old rules and set the same routines way too often. Just because someone once said that we need to act in a certain way, doesn't mean it's always the truth. So why not do something crazy, different or just out of the ordinary today and at the same time make a difference in the life of someone else?
Yesterday I allowed a driver to go ahead of me at the drive-through of a fast-food restaurant. The lady was on the phone and seemed to be in a hurry. Not sure of what could have been the urgency or even if there was any but all the same, I wasn't in a hurry so I let her go on in front of me. The lady ordered her food and took off. When I pulled up to the drive-through window to pay the cashier, I was told by the cashier that my meal was paid for by the driver of the car ahead of me. Now how sweet was that? I couldn't do anything but smile and thought, "What a gracious thing to do!" Later that day after work, I had to stop for gas and I noticed a young lady was counting out loose change from her wallet at the counter and needed only $6 dollars of gas to get to her destination I heard her tell the cashier. She didn't seem have enough so she ran out to her car looking for more loose change. I paid the cashier $20 and told her to put $10 dollars on my pump and $10 dollars on the lady's pump and to tell her the gas was taken care of.
That day, I as determined to make someone else smile just out of the ordinary, as someone made me smile earlier that day.
There are so many things we can do for one another breaking from our ordinary daily routines that could make someone smile. Can you think of a few things you would do for someone just out of the ordinary?
C'mon, go ahead! Spread some love and kindness today because it always comes back and it really will make you feel good all over! :)
