A couple of weeks ago I was waiting in a rather lengthy line at a drive-thru. I passed the time by being absorbed in discussion with a friend. When I got to the window to pay for my food, the cashier informed me that the person in the car ahead of me had paid for my food.
I’d been so engrossed in conversation that I had no idea who had been in front of me. The cashier could only tell me that the person paying was a lady with grey hair. All I could see at that point was the back of her head and the car pulling out onto the highway.
Whether this was a random act of kindness or someone who knows me remains a mystery. Either way, I am grateful and the experience taught me to pay more attention to those around me.
