Pay it Forward…

Tonight we had a sweet lady in a white FJ pay for our food while going through the drive through at Taco Bell here in Duncan, OK. I was shocked. Dillon was like huh? What? Stop pulling my leg? There is noway someone just paid for our food? You are joking, right? But she did and the guy in the window says she does it once a week. She even wrote on our receipt “Have A Blessed Day.” I think it was so sweet. We will definitely be paying it forward.

I’ve decided that I’m going to adopt her out look on this. Now I can’t go super crazy but we are a little more fortunate than others and I’d like to make people feel just the way I did tonight.

If only everyone could adopt a pay it forward method. It’s not all about money. You can do all kinds of things to help some one out, with out spending a dime. Now, it’s still a scary place out their so don’t go putting your self in a bad spot because your trying to help some one out!

You can do little things like: Return a store cart for someone, turn in that lost wallet with someone’s hard earned money in it, buy a stranger a coffee or soda, give someone your seat, just tell someone they look nice, tell our military personnel thank you, hold the door a little longer just so the next person can get in outta the cold, let the person behind you with only a few items go ahead, let someone go even if the light is green . It doesn’t take much if you just be conscious and considerate. It will make your day better and someone else’s.

Logan found a wallet the other day at a gas station on our way home. It had quite a bit of cash in it. It had no ID, only 2 phone numbers. (It looked like a little kids wallet, with Christmas money in it) we called and text the numbers and took it in to the lady’s behind the cash register. They said “We can’t believe you brought this in honestly most people would have just kept it.” I was baffled, (I mean I’ve lost a few wallets, phones, and a camera only to never see them again) at the fact that the lady was shocked at someone doing the right thing. That is so sad. I hope the owner gets his money back! I’d hate to loose my Christmas money.

Pay it Forward, Chain of Love, Kindness, or anything else you want to call it y’all just practice it! I promise you’ll feel better and so will someone else!

  1. When my daughter worked at taco bell she told me they would have customers do this and it sometimes started a chain reaction that would go on for several cars. A cool idea. This is a great post with a lovely message.
