In Florida, McDonald’s cashier Marisabel Figueroa Lopez was working the drive-thru window last Wednesday when she says a woman drove up and told the employee that she wanted to pay for the car behind her.
Can you imagine this image ? I can; the other day, someone paid for my Starbuck’s skinny, upside down, grande, caramel macchiato , without even knowing me ! When I arrived at the drive- thru window, the cashier said “The car in front already paid.”
I don’t know who it was; may or not ever see them again; all I remember is this is something I want to pass along to all those who read my blog and have a need to do something that will warm someone else’s heart this season.
One of my students said she enjoyed reading about the recipes I have shared in the past blogs. And, while delighted that she even reads Nicenbreezy, I was awkwardly reminded that the intent of this blog is about creating conversations…communication… and finding ways to connect with others.
And so, I am sending out a challenge to Yule ( y’all) to pay it forward this holiday season.
This is the season of giving and while you may not put a dollar in the Salvation Army kettle or may not give to the Food Bank, this pay it forward idea is hassle free !
Try it! And many, many thanks to whoever paid for my Starbucks coffee at Blanding and Argyle Forest Blvd in Orange Park, FL. You are awesome !
Happy Holidays everyone; enjoy one of my favorite holiday songs : I’m playing it forward…for Yule !!
