A dear friend recently shared a homemade smile card experience with me:
Ever since yesterday, I've had this urge to pay forward someone's coffee. But I didn't have a smile card.
The urgency of bringing a smile to someone's face was so great, however, that, today, I decided to do it anyway! :)
While at a cafe, I anonymously paid for the coffee of the next person, and though I didn't have a smile card, I put together a lovely hand-written message
. It read:
You are being tagged. Your coffee is being paid for as a "gift of love". If you chose, you can pay it forward. Simply Smile and enjoy your coffee.
Who knew that such good things can happen, when we realize the beautiful urgency of smiling! :)
