PAY IT FORWARD

"PAY IT FORWARD", When someone does a nice deed for you and you pay a nice deed to someone else:

So, when someone opens the door for me to let me in while I'm pushing a double stroller, I say "thank you" to that person and remember to do a good deed for another. 1 week later, I see a very cold and shivering military guard at the gate. After I was done grocery shopping, I stopped at the BX for a large cup of hot cocoa. I turned my car around and I gave it to him. It was nice to see his big smile.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE YOUR LATEST "PAY IT FORWARD" STORY?

We live in Hawaii so one hot summer day I went to Burger King and brought the front gate guys and gals Icee's and Milk shakes.  This week I cooked my neighbor dinner for her family because she had an angina attack and is on bed rest. Hopefully the neighborhood can bring her meals throughout the next two weeks to make her life easier.

I didn't kill anyone today. I think that's pretty magnanimous.

 Every time that I perform a fecal disimpaction, I apply lubricant prior to sticking my finger in the person's ass.

I'm a very giving person like that.

I was walking into a civilian grocery store and an elderly lady was coming out with her friend. So instead of speeding up and going in front of her and messing up her night, I waited until they both passed. She even asked me if I was cold because I wasn't wearing a jacket.

At the Dollar Store one day, I paid for the four or five items the person behind me was getting. She almost cried. This happened to me once and I always remember how much it helped me out.

Last time something like that happened, my kids both got a dollar from an elderly lady. They are 2 and 1 year olds. Must have been December. We put those dollars in the charity thing.
