This morning I was driving around aimlessly as Claire had fallen asleep on her way to her Doctor’s appointment. Went through Starbucks and someone ahead of me had paid for my coffee. The Starbucks Server said the ‘pay it forward’ had been going strong for awhile. Been smiling all morning long. It’s just astonishing how much a little thing can make a person feel something much larger. Kindness just has a way of ballooning, doesn’t it?
And in a town where people hold the doors for each other, smile, give the nod while passing on deserted two lane roads, and actually look you in the eye …
Well. Feeling lucky to be apart of a community like this.
Wondering who it was that started it? You’re totally responsible for good moods all across Rapid City today. Well, at least with the caffeine addicted crowd.
(p.s. reminds me of jess and linz yesterday, too. jess showed up to linz’s house with a latte and a cupcake just because. Just because. The ultimate act of kindness.)
