Happy December 31…

And Happy New Year’s Eve!

I think most of us are anxious to say goodbye to 2020 already and move on to a new year. But I had the nicest thing happen this morning that really lifted my spirits!

I dropped youngest at work and was going to hang out with JP, my eight year old grandson who is on break from school this week. So I called my son who works from home now and said I was going to Starbucks and did they want anything? I always get JP a kid’s hot chocolate and ended up ordering that and three specialty coffees.

Imagine my surprise when I got to the driveup pick up window and the barista said, “Happy New Year, the gentleman in front of you paid for your order!” I was so touched (and feeling a little guilty that he probably hadn’t expected to pay for FOUR drinks!) Of course I paid it forward — well, backwards, really — and paid for the car behind me. I got off easy with a $6 bill.

So if you were in the Chicago suburbs and paid for a big order for the pumpkin colored Buick (with reindeer antlers and a red nose) behind you at Starbucks this morning, I can’t thank you enough for your generosity and kindness and for making my day so special! I hope that kindness continued through the whole line…
