Circle of Kindness! Thank you for your service!
My dad served in WWII and Korea, so I've always had a soft spot in my heart for our troops.
While grocery shopping one evening, I saw a uniformed gentleman in line ahead of me. I wanted to do something to show my appreciation, so I decided to pay for his groceries. He was very thankful, and left with a smile on his face. I didn't think much more of it, but when the cashier finished ringing up my groceries, he said, "Hold on a moment." He then pulled a 10%off coupon out of his drawer and scanned it for me. "I've never seen such an act of kindness before, and I want to pay it forward!" he said. It turns out we'd started our own little circle of kindness that day, and I went home feeling so blessed!
