This noon, a friend and I learned as we were finishing our lunch that another group of diners had paid our check for us. Doesn't that just make you smile? I've thought about it a few times since and I keep returning not to the fact that lunch was free today, rather, to the generosity of spirit that made a stranger decide to do something quite unexpected and nice for another human being.
As we learned our fortune, I smiled at my friend and said, "we get to pay it forward another day!" It makes me smile even more anticipating that I can make another human being feel the way I've felt today.
As it turns out, there was business attached to my lunch. We were discussing ways that I could help by volunteering to do some writing for the non profit charitable organization she works for. We were discussing how magical it is when a group of like minded people get together to create good for their community, we were discussing giving. And look what the Universe provided -a reason to be even more excited about and grateful for generosity of spirit.
