I was eating dinner with a friend when the waiter walked over and said “Your dinner was paid for by that family that is leaving.”
We looked over and saw a family waiting and smiling. Neither of us knew them or had ever seen them before. The waiter said they just wanted to surprise us by doing something nice. It was a really cool feeling and such a sweet gesture.
I never forgot it.
After that, I would occasionally surprise someone and buy their drink or coffee at the Starbucks drive thru. It’s a small but kind gesture that can make somebody feel so good.
Or make their day… it did mine!
