Thoughtful Thursdays

A very sweet thing happened to me today which caused me to still keep smiling.  I was in my apartment and getting ready to make some lunch but then started to feel lazy so I decided to go out and get some food instead.  
I was running a little short on cash so I decided to just hit up the Del Taco which has some pretty cheap food that still fills me up.  I ordered my food and was waiting in line, there were about 3 cars in front of me.  I was just messing with the music and wasn't paying any attention, so when it was time for me to pull up to the cashier, I had my money ready and was handing it to the cashier.  The cashier lady just looked at me and smiled, saying  my order was paid for by the car in front of me that just drove off!  
In my mind, I thought this was some prank or I was on TV, I was looking everywhere for Ashton Kutcher and quickly fixing my hair and whatnot!
(Haha, just kidding :D )
But forreal, I was shocked.  I've heard of this but never had it happen to me!  You can't help but just smile knowing that there is still good out in this world.  To keep spreading the happiness, kindness, and smiles, I asked the lady what the car behind me total was, and to my luck, they only ordered a drink and one taco, so I still got to not spend much as planned!  I went ahead and paid for the car behind me.  As I drove away, I looked in my rear view mirror looking back how that person didn't know what she had coming to her as well.
The little things really do make the smiles last longer!
The point of this story is that when you least expect it, your day can turn around completely. It TRULEY is the SMALL things in life that mean the most.  
So remember:: giving does have its rewards and it makes you feel so much better knowing others are genuinely happy, smiling is contagious, and always look on the bright side!  You never know what is around the corner and what good karma could come your way!
ps, don't forget to =)
