There are good people in this world.
I strolled into Dunkin at the mall to get my coffee. There was a lady in the line with two cute little children, all dressed nicely. Admiringly, I smiled at them and had light conversation.
As she was placing her order, she told the cashier, “..and I will pay for whatever she’s having.”
My eyes opened wide and I thanked her for my medium hot coffee [light and sweet]. We wished each other a Merry Christmas and off they went into the mall and I went to find a cozy spot to sit down to enjoy my coffee.
Life Lessons from My Dunkin’s Experience
1. I didn’t say “No, it’s okay” (which I would have done). I realized:
2. The lady didn’t look like me or have my skin color. We never met each other before. God can use anyone to bless you (total stranger, anybody).
The experience brought a smile to my face and I was indeed very grateful. Givers never lack. I have learned to be a blessing to others and help people.
May God bless the lady, her beautiful children and her entire family. Because she has blessed me – God’s daughter, mega doors will open for her in Jesus name.
