Today I am grateful for the kindness of strangers. The other night, when I went out to eat with my high school friend, we went to use a gift card I had for Olive Garden. The only problem was that the wait was 40 minutes. We had decided to go elsewhere to eat, but as we were leaving a couple asked us how long the wait was--and we told them 40 minutes. They asked us if we would like to take their place in line, offering us their pager device, because they could not wait any longer. We decided to take them up on the offer. They said they had already been waiting for 20 minutes and to expect them to call then name "Sandy." Then they gave us a coupon for $4 off the purchase of two entrees. It was so nice to have a stranger be kind!
Today I will pass on this kindness to strangers with whom I come into contact. Maybe I will be able to brighten someone's day as "Sandy" brightened mine.
