Spreading Kindness

*Thank you friends and family for inquiring about my health. I am on the road to recovery and will be back tomorrow. For now, I’ll leave you with this inspiring story*

This was on the editor’s page in our local paper:

On a hot Friday afternoon, the teen director at the local Family YMCA walked his 19 teenagers – ages 12 to 18 – across the street for a well-deserved treat at the local Sonic Drive-In.

Some of the teens had enough money to purchase lunch, but several could only muster $1 for a drink and had brought their lunches from home.

As the director and his teens were getting settled, a Sonic employee came over and opened his hand, revealing a wad of cash – $100, to be exact.

As the Y’s teen director looked up in surprise, the Sonic employee pointed to a white bearded man in a tan SUV pulling away from the Sonic. This kind gentleman had given our YMCA teens $100 to enjoy lunch.

Our teen director quickly took the opportunity to educate his teens to pay it forward. As the gentleman drove off, the teens all signaled their appreciation to him, but, being a modest soul, he was already looking the other way.
