Paying it forward in light of kind grocery store gesture

On Thanksgiving weekend while at a local grocery store, I asked the gentleman behind me if he wanted to go ahead of me.

Dear Editor,

On Thanksgiving weekend while at a local grocery store, I asked the gentleman behind me if he wanted to go ahead of me. I thought no more about it until the cashier informed me that this man had left cash to go toward my groceries. I was so surprised!

As I stood there, now holding up the rest of the shoppers, I was thinking about what a kind gesture this was. Thank you!

I decided to pay this forward. I am matching this gift — and my grown children have added to it — and we are donating to the Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau.
