The Season Of Giving
Thursday, December 24, 2015
Most of us are busy during the holiday season. We shop, we want to find the right gift for that special person....as a mother I really do not think about receiving much for myself.
Today was an awesome day. I had a hair appointment in the morning - everything was great. I wanted my hair to look good for the evening. It was my date night with hubby. Our kids are grown and married....this was going to be a quiet dinner to celebrate Christmas Eve.
I see reports of paying it forward on the news often. I always think it is a great idea. Well, what was an awesome gesture for us - an anonymous person(s) paid for our dinner. It was quite a surprise. Just receiving that nice treat was a great way to top off our day. It was not merely the money, it was just the idea that a person that did not know us was so generous and giving. As we left the restaurant, I saw a table with two young people. I wanted to see who I should tell the server to give our money to pay it forward. Of course, we wanted to leave before the table knew who left the money. What a blessing to give and receive.
