Over the weekend, my husband & I were out to a nice dinner. I noticed the young couple next to us ordered water and split an entree. I asked the waitress to put their meal on our ticket. When they finished dinner she asked if they wanted anything else and told them they didn't have a bill because we picked it up and said Merry Christmas. They jumped up and thanked us and the young man said it was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for him. I said it was our pleasure and asked him to "pay it forward" by doing something nice for someone else. As I sat there eating, I was thankful I could still go out to eat and grateful that I was able to slow down enough in this fast paced world to do something nice for someone else. I have no doubt they will pay it forward more than once. It's nearly a year now since my diagnosis and it felt so good to make it about someone else again. The young couple might have felt good about it but I felt even better :-) Do something nice for someone today!
