Tried to pay it forward today. It didn’t work at first. I was stunned. Through tears, I tried again with someone else. It worked.
Maybe sometimes you need to be persistent with kindness before it’s received. Maybe it’s never received. That doesn’t mean we should stop trying.
At lunch, I saw this sign. A literal sign. Maybe the two men this morning- the one who rejected goodwill in Hank’s name, and the one who heard my ten second story of why I was giving him a gift card- both ended up paying it forward and this means it’s come back to me?
