Kendra: Story Of A $1000 Blessing

Kendramama (re: couple that gave her $1000 tip):  This was such a blessing, and so bizarre how it came about- as a motor carrier, I rarely see in person any of my Leisure Park customers. But this particular elderly couple happens to be the very last house on my route, and they being early risers, we had met several times; exchanged Christmas cards, and she’d left cookies, snacks, and recycled paper bags many times as well. I’d received a nice tip from them Sunday night and so made a point to go out and purchase a thank you card to tuck in their paper- rather than the usual quick note I scribble on other occasions when I get left a few bucks. Later that day, the Mrs. called me and invited me over for coffee. Rest of the story here .

Question: Do you believe in paying it forward?
