Love Train (Its' not as dirty as it sounds)

I stopped at Starbucks on my way to the office this morning and the girl at the window said:

'About 15 cars ago, a driver paid for his drink, and that of the car behind them. Ever since everybody has been paying for the car behind them. The gentlemen in front of you paid for yours.'

I was sitting in my car thinking about how nice the driver of that first car was, he must of woke up happy, and I'm sure he made that next drivers morning, how nice!

So the girl continues, 'You don't have to keep the love train going if you don't want to'.

Oh, but I do want to!! So I paid for the girl's coffee behind me. And the best part? I ordered a blueberry muffin and a frappachino, the girl behind me just ordered coffee, so I basically got a free muffin!!

I hope the 'love train' was kept going for a while. It seems so simple, yet it was so nice. I hope b/c of the kind heartedness of the first driver that everyone in that 'love train' has a good day. I hope that first driver enjoys his day, and his coffee and knows that because of him several people left the Starbucks drive thru a little happier this morning, and with a smile on their faces.

I wonder if that driver was excited about the expected heat wave today? By heat wave I mean a high of 46 degrees. Which is way better than the negative numbers we have been having!

How lovely! Such a nice thought that I feel quite inspired to do nice things - not that I normally don't! Haha! :)

And thanks for dropping by my blog!
